Rudy 36x24 Cow In Field 12x24

These are available from the studio. They are framed in very snazzy antiqued black 3.5 wide profile furniture grade joined frames. These are from my Master Series paintings...made over time with multiple glazes. I will consider trades for musical instruments as well as cash, gold, diamonds or guns. Sounds too good to be true doesn't it? Well, I was exaggerating a bit about the diamonds and gold part...but you can always send lawyers, guns and money. Seems you'll almost always need the first when the other two are involved. Rudy is $1295 Cow costs $675

Let's Make A Deal

Deal or no deal? I'm open to trade. If you like any of these pieces I'm posting...or want something new for your home, office or cabin but don't want to spend the shekels then...we may yet have a reason to get you into your newest and best investment of the year. I'm open to painting on commission for trade...presently looking for hunting gear and or places to hunt/fish. Let me know if your interested and what you got and chances are we can get you that special designer art piece you've been pining for. Write me at Los Hawkins @ and we can discuss this further. This painting has been sold.
PS. I'm also interested in musical instruments...etc.

Dusk In MY Eyes 24x48 Fruited Plane 24x48

These two gargantuan monsters will be offered on auction...if you'd like to bid see the link to "Link To Art For Sale" on the right (top)
I have yet to see the article /photo but one of my paintings made the cut for the Feb./March issue of International Artists magazine "landscape" competition. Apparently it's already hit the news stands, a very cool honor indeed. I really dig this publication...good inspiration for realist painters etc., So if your looking for some pleasant sightseeing check it out. I was informed that I'd be getting a free subscription as a prize so, true to starving artist form, I am holding out till I get my first copy. Maybe I'll check it out at Barns & Noble next time I'm at the mall searching for my teenage skate-boarders as they try to elude proprietors, mall cops and parents in their pursuit of the perfect bench to grind.

The Long Fence 24x36

The boys, fifteen and seventeen (in March) respectively, get along remarkably well. They are like twins...rarely leaving each other's side. I had Eddie out for a long day of duck hunting last week. The whole time his conversation was peppered with references to his younger brother; what he would be saying or doing if he were with us. At the end of our excursion, as the sun was going down, he unabashedly said he missed his brother Eli. So, I brag on these two and often take credit for their familial affections and brotherly love. After all, I tell them, I am their creator. That said, I was startled suddenly the other day by a rare and invective-filled commotion just outside the studio. So much was the clatter that I was forced to rise from my easel where I sat perched and still with brush in hand, poised for a last and deftly placed stroke on a masterpiece, to see what was the matter. Well, it seems, (I was told) that boy #2 had "accidentally" elbowed his older brother in the face...a couple of times. Boy #1 purposefully yet "instinctively" "...couldn't help myself" wound up and punched his little brother in the nose...hard. Now they appeared to be fighting over who was going to get a paper towel to soak up the blood pouring out of poor Eli's face. As we sat at the table for lunch a little while later the boys recounted all the times one has bloodied the other's nose, alternately finishing each other's sentences and laughing all the while. I'm just glad the punch wasn't "instinctively" placed a little lower and thus smashed 3K's worth of braces. I would have had my own "Couldn't help myself" reaction that I'm sure would have CPS breathing down my neck. I guess all's well that ends well.

My Big Fat Mexican Wedding 36x24

Yes, I had one, seems like just yesterday.

New Years Talent Show

I think we were playing Crocodile Rock...not really an Elton look-alike but I can play that (in the key of C) and still know most of the lyrics.
