Realistic Landscape Paintings

Bluebonnet realistic landscape oil paintingWelcome to the realistic oil paintings and artwork of William Hagerman that include realistic paintings of the American west, southwest landscape, Texas hill country, bluebonnet paintings and other beautiful views of the rural countryside.

You will find solace among the elegant oil paintings that highlight the majesty of the landscape captured in a moment of time and then translated to canvas by the artist's hand. As humans we are made up of the elements of the earth, and when we experience the scenic outdoors, we feel drawn to it, nurtured by it, and rejuvenated as we savor the beauty around us.

Having good taste is appreciating beauty. Creating it is my art. The painting featured here titled "Spring Consonance" is my latest 24x36 oil. You may click the image for a larger view. Now available at Folger Gallery in Midland, TX (432) 697-3778 * 3211 W. Wadley Ave.

If you haven't found that "special painting" then a commissioned oil painting may be just the perfect option for you.

As one happy customer related: "Our painting captures the mood of the area and is so peaceful you can gaze at it for hours and feel refreshed - like a mini-vacation."

I invite you to learn more about this great opportunity along with a few other customer testimonials.
