1. Steve Hanks To Believe   $545.00

“The Grand Canyon is not the most beautiful and interesting thing in the world I could choose to paint―the human figure is. Beyond its surface variety and beauty, the depth of expression the human figure is capable of is immense,” relates Steve Hanks. “Additionally, each viewer’s interpretation of what they see will be based on their own individual experiences. So when I paint a painting of a woman deep in thought, the most compelling part of the painting is the part I have left out―uncovering what the woman must be thinking.”

Steve Hanks may not tell us exactly what this woman is thinking, but he always leaves us with some clues to help interpret. He uses sunlight not only to reveal beauty but as a metaphor to connote revelation or understanding. Light can emanate from a person as much as they can reflect it. Small bodies of water are calm and safe places as opposed to the vast and unpredictable sea. A lifted head conveys joy and confidence.

But none of the above matters much if the artwork itself is not being created by a master. This Greenwich Workshop Fine Art Edition of To Believe captures all the beauty and grace of the Steve Hanks’ original. You can almost smell the water in the reflecting pool, experience the sun on the woman’s face and feel the heat emanating from the stone on which she sits.

4. Steve Hanks Northwest Coastline   $495.00

Beaches are soulful, introspective places where even mountains yield to the vastness of the sea. They provoke examination of one's own life and place in the world. They are points of arrival and of departure where the ebb and flow of tide and wave constantly restore what the other washes away. The ocean is a place of challenges and opportunity that reminds us of the scale of our own lives beside the great forces of nature.

5. Steve Hanks The Journey is the Goal ANNIVERSARY EDITION   $395.00

“Each time I do an interview I am asked what my goals are. My answer is always the same; ‘The journey is the goal.’ I liked the idea of a painting with that title. One summer I took my kids to Aspen to have them model for it,” relates Steve Hanks.

“I found a perfect house on a shaded street and posed them there, walking past it with the wagon. The concept is that people too often focus on getting that great house or career position and spend their lives working for it. In the process, they miss out on the special times they could have spent together as a family before their children have grown up. If there is one thing an artist is taught early on, it’s good to keep the important things in the foreground.”

The Journey Is the Goal is an Anniversary Edition Fine Art Giclče Canvas of one of Steve Hanks’ all-time favorite images. Often, the most powerful and enjoyable works of art are the ones that appeal to our most basic and universal emotions.

A jazz funeral cortege celebrates its way past St. Louis Cathedral where a group of street musicians joins in the celebration of the life of the deceased.

8. Steve Hanks Contemplating the Necessary Steps   $295.00

The beauty of a painting by Steve Hanks is just as often matched by the thought and story behind it. Contemplating the Necessary Steps is one of a series of paintings that Hanks created as expressions of the healing process. Throughout the series, as the model makes her journey, she climbs higher and higher up the staircase. Both One Step at a Time and A New Beginning are other fine art editions that are part of this series.

9. Steve Hanks In the Soft Comfort of Her Bed   $495.00

10. Steve Hanks Holding the Family Together ANNIVERSARY EDITION ON   $495.00

“Most people will look at Holding the Family Together and see it as a reminder of a happy family vacation,” says artist Steve Hanks. “but for me it is about the man in the painting, his position in society and how the pendulum has swung the other way and put men in this position—trying to keep the family together while they’re all going in different directions.

11. Steve Hanks Holding the Family Together MASTERWORK ANNIVERSARY EDITION   $795.00

“Most people will look at Holding the Family Together and see it as a reminder of a happy family vacation,” says artist Steve Hanks. “but for me it is about the man in the painting, his position in society and how the pendulum has swung the other way and put men in this position—trying to keep the family together while they’re all going in different directions.

12. Steve Hanks Aspen Winter   $695.00

“This painting is not about a woman I’d like to be with, but rather it’s homage to a town that is so very close to my heart,” says artist Steve Hanks. At the risk of sounding like the Chamber of Commerce, Aspen is a very special place, averaging over 300 days of sunshine year and yes, the skiing is legendary. It’s also home to Steve Hanks’ original painting gallery and decades of wonderful memories for the artist and his three children. Hanks’ command of watercolor craft is on full display in this portrayal of confident anticipation of a great day on the slopes. If you’ve ever been here, or hope to go, this love letter to Aspen will ensure that you hold onto that dream.

13. Steve Hanks Field of Dreams   $495.00

Like most of artist Steve Hanks’ paintings, there are rich layers of meaning and emotion in Field of Dreams, his entry into the 2012 prestigious, national invitational Prix de West. Everything in this vertical composition points to the young girl’s dreams as the eye is drawn from her Western boots to her hair to the horse’s face to the road that carries you finally to the shining mountains on the horizon.

The connection between the girl and her horse is intimate and we can practically smell the animal and feel its breath on her shoulder. Strong and absolutely trustworthy, the beloved horse is her most faithful con-fidant. “This painting is about hopes and dreams that are shared and com-municated in silence. Art can do that, too,” says Hanks. This spectacular landscape of a young woman’s dreams will inspire everyone who sees it and warm any room in your home.

14. Steve Hanks In the Spotlight of the Sun Limited Edition   $250.00

Two artists make accomplished perfection appear effortless. We see the dancer’s mastery of balance and grace through the artist’s command of shape and form and the play of light on and about her through his superb mastery of watercolor paints. This Fine Art Edition is the finishing touch in the creation of a truly elegant living space.

15. Steve Hanks Time Standing StillANNIVERSARY EDITION ON   $495.00

As is often the case with Steve Hanks’ nudes, there is sense of privacy expressed by his models, something he refers to as “introspective solitude.” His exceptional watercolor technique is the perfect medium for capturing the quality of light and shadow that is as much the subject of this painting as the woman.
“I like to consider those times when we make life’s major decisions,” says artist Steve Hanks, “when we are alone with our thoughts, when we both confront and challenge ourselves. I titled this Time Standing Still because we all want time to stop when we experience beautiful moments in life, But life can never stop, except in art.”

16. Steve Hanks There Are Places to Go    $495.00

“On the surface, the story behind this painting is straight forward,” begins Steve Hanks. “This young woman has decided that it is time for her to leave home and make her own way in the world. The choice is hers and she is confident and self assured in her decision. But as it is with most of my paintings, there is a deeper, personal story to it.
“Years ago I painted a piece called Traveling with Dad. It showed me holding my daughter on an empty platform at a deserted railway stop. I painted that image at what was, without a doubt, the lowest point of my life. I was on my own raising two kids and the painting truly captured that feeling of the unknown future that we were heading toward. You’ll notice that this young woman carries the same suitcase I had on the platform.”
“Today, I am a long way down that track and it turns out our stop was in New Mexico. I have always painted the mountains, the sea and rivers and lakes so it seemed to me for the longest time that Albuquerque was a place that I was going to either pass through or leave from. Well, the years passed and time has revealed that this was our destination. Albuquerque is our home. That little girl I once could easily hold in my arms is now grown up. The future is hers. She is going to be making her own decisions, which will determine the places she is headed toward.”
There Are Places to Go is as fine an example of contemporary realism as you are going to find today in the art world. Steve Hanks is recognized as one of the country’s most important figurative artists. His technical skills combined with his captivating storytelling set his work apart from others. There Are Places to Go is available as both a drop-dead gorgeous Fine Art Canvas as well as an attractive regular-sized Fine Art Giclee Paper. Don’t let this train leave the station without you and don’t miss the chance to enrich your home with this work of fine art.

17. Steve Hanks Summer Rain   $0.00

The beauty and seeming simplicity of this Steve Hanks painting gives little hint of the complexity within it. Each child interacts with the rain differently. As we grow older our perspective broadens and nowhere is this more obvious than with children. As with many Hanks paintings, Summer Rain is a metaphor for life. The umbrella and companionship offer these girls shelter from passing storms. They will master the simple steps of living and then apply them to life’s harder challenges.

“This is a recent painting I did on Clayboard,” says artist Steve Hanks, “a surface that still amazes me as a watercolor artist. The colors are brighter, the rainwater and reflections are even more realistic.” Summer rain is a passing necessity for everything that grows and a thing of wonderment to the young. Bring a little Summer Rain into your home or business with this new release from Steve Hanks.

18. Steve Hanks Stringing the Children Along MASTERWORK EDITION ON   $800.00

As any parent knows, it's important to pay attention to their children when going into town. Any small motion or object will distract the child's attention and draw them away to investigate. This teacher has a unique way of maintining control, keeping all her little charges on a string, insuring the safety of even the worst wanderer.

19. Steve Hanks Like an Angel   $495.00

20. Steve Hanks Boundless   $595.00

Recently artist Steve Hanks has been working on a series of paintings he refers to as “There are Angels Among Us” wherein he explores the idea of guardian angels in our lives. These may be angels of inspiration, angels of beauty, angels who provide direction or protection in our lives and the spirits of angels who lift us and sometimes even carry us. Mostly he is creating a tribute to the great role models and influences in his own life.

Boundless has a compelling composition. Her gesture like a metaphor for the cross, this joyous beauty leaps into a shaft of sunlight on an otherwise dim and foggy beach. Viewers are left to wonder, will she come down or is she on her way, eternally up? This very limited Fine Art Edition will bring inspiration to any room in your home and a gift of light to someone you love.

21. Steve Hanks In the Warm Savannah Sun Limited Edition   $395.00

“I didn’t grow up in the South,” says artist Steve Hanks, “but I love the feel of it, especially Savannah, Charleston and New Orleans. These places fit the emotions I use in my art. The young woman in this painting is lost in a moment of reflection but her posture is relaxed anticipation. She’s ready for what’s coming her way.”

In the Warm Savannah Sun captures the most compelling qualities of Steve Hanks’ artwork. The single feminine figure, defined by sunlight and shadow, caught up in private emotions but placed in a specific physical location. We can feel the warm sunlight on her shoulders and the cool stone tile underfoot. The ubiquitous wrought iron fences of Savannah are here, as well as its beloved live oak trees with Spanish moss in the background.

Bring a beautiful slice of Savannah into your home with this fine art giclTe on watercolor paper that is nearly indistinguishable from Steve Hanks’ original painting.

22. Steve Hanks The Road Less Traveled Limited Edition   $325.00

“I find those straight, long roads that transverse the barrenness of nowhere so intriguing. Who lives out there, what do they do? Imagine having grown up in one of those small Midwestern towns and what it is like to decide it is time to leave that small-town life behind?” asks Steve Hanks. “I think we all want to believe we would take the road less traveled, but are we prepared for the inclement weather or the time that may pass before opportunity offers us a ride? Certainly, this girl radiates inner confidence and everything about her, right down to her off-beat clothes, represents one who would choose to take the road less traveled.”

One of the unique qualities of this work is that that the original was a watercolor painted on Clayboard«. The paints sit on top of the Clayboard« surface rather than being absorbed into it as it does with traditional watercolor paper. The sharper color this creates comes alive all the more when varnished, a technique watercolorists don’t have the chance to employ.

23. Steve Hanks His Shirt   $395.00

“Even though I talk about my art as being an emotional representation of my life,” says Hanks, “the model does have a strong influence on a painting. I don’t look for photographic modeling types. I look for real people that I think would look good in a painting, and most of them have not modeled before. Their innocence and shyness comes through.” As is often the case with Steve Hanks’ nudes, the quality of light and shadow is as much the subject of the painting as the women.

24. Steve Hanks The Road Less Traveled MASTERWORK EDITION ON   $850.00

“I find those straight, long roads that transverse the barrenness of nowhere so intriguing. Who lives out there, what do they do? Imagine having grown up in one of those small Midwestern towns and what it is like to decide it is time to leave that small-town life behind?” asks Steve Hanks. “I think we all want to believe we would take the road less traveled, but are we prepared for the inclement weather or the time that may pass before opportunity offers us a ride?

25. Steve Hanks Hold Onto the Gate   $250.00

I love to revist the times when my kids were young and innocent and liked to play make-believe, says artist Steve Hanks. This little angel is probably too young to be outside the gate by herself so she's going to hold on tightly, with both hands.
Hold Onto the Gate is a darling portrait of a child's first glimpse of life outside the family. The elaborate wrought iron gate makes a dramatic backdrop to the fragility of the little ballerina standing before it. She won't be like this for long.

26. Steve Hanks Her Domain   $400.00

Throughout the history of art, great artists have admired and then captured the human form on canvas. Artist Steve Hanks' exquisite contribution to this timeless art form is evidenced in his art. Discerning collectors will appreciate these signed and numbered, giclTe prints from the Figures in Light® series. Steve Hanks' exceptional watercolor technique is the perfect medium for this subject. Rather than convey a specific message through his paintings, Hanks prefers to evoke an emotion-what he refers to as introspective solitude ů as he beautifully captures a moment in time.

27. Steve Hanks Morning Bath   $495.00

“Water isŕa challenge,” says Steve Hanks. “It adds a transparent, reflective layer over skin. The symbolism is quite different, though. Water has a cleansing quality. It can be seen as washing away the past and moving on.”
Hanks has overcome the “challenge” of painting water in exquisite fashion in Morning Bath. His understanding of the behavior of light on skin imbues the piece with a radiant elegance.

28. Steve Hanks Reflecting on Indian Beach Limited Edition   $550.00

With Reflecting on Indian Beach Steve Hanks shows just why he is regarded as the best watercolor artist painting in America today. It is a definitive combination of beauty, emotion and environment. “There is a big difference between the beaches of the Northern Pacific Coast and those down in Southern California,” says Hanks. “The surf rolls in over long shallow flats. The waves pound and boil for great distances, creating in the air thick moisture. This subtly diffuses the light creating an atmosphere palatably different than that on the beaches farther south.”

What began in his mind as a relatively straight-forward painting took Hanks over a month to create. He became absorbed in building the large reflective areas of the tidal flats. It seems as if we can reach in ourselves and run our fingers through the cool, moist sand at this serene and magical place where tree-lined mountains slip beneath the surface of the sea.

29. Steve Hanks Raising Daughters   $695.00

“As this family enjoys a walk along the beach in Del Mar, California,” says artist Steve Hanks,“a discussion with the younger daughter takes the full attention of her parents. This gives her older sister a chance to pursue her interests. “I’ve heard it said that when you raise a boy you only have one boy to worry about, but when you raise a daughter you have all of them to worry about. To illustrate this in Raising Daughters, the two girls and their mothers are the only females on the beach. I carried the story further by making the older daughter and the boy she is admiring into a couple in the far distant background, walking away.”

30. Steve Hanks Children on La Jolla Shores   $550.00

As we grow older our perspective broadens and nowhere is this more obvious than with children. And, as is so often the case with a painting by Steve Hanks, the beauty and seeming simplicity of the work gives no hint of the complexity beneath. Each child interacts with the beach as they do the world. The youngest boy in the back is focused on his older sister. She in turn is picking up a shell, something in her immediate vicinity.

The third, grasping some seaweed makes the connection between it and the ocean from which it came. The oldest stares down the beach toward a group of surfers, the opening of the next phase of life beyond the immediate family.

31. Steve Hanks Scenic View Limited Edition   $495.00

She’s at the edge of a low wall with no clear path ahead but her eyes are drawn to the sweep of white foam from the crashing waves in the cove below. From there her dreams can soar. The turn of her head contributes to the painting’s expression of solitude and yet we share her view. Everything about this woman says “confidence” and the beautiful composition of physical and geographic curves presents an elegant portrait for any room in the house. Scenic View is published as a giclTe on paper, virtually identical to the watercolor of the original painting.

32. Steve Hanks Her Time Limited Edition   $300.00

This painting is really about being young. I used strong, warm sunlight to convey the strength, promise and beauty of youth. At this time in her life, this woman is physically at her peak. I wanted the painting to celebrate the perfection of of the human figure and depict that this is, literally, her time to look good, feel great and choose from all of what life has to offer.

33. Steve Hanks A New Beginning MASTERWORK EDITION ON   $850.00

“Any healing process can be a lengthy one,” says Steve Hanks. “Often it can be helped by attempting to visualize the future. Such is the inspiration for A New Beginning. This is, in fact, the final painting in a series of three that have used the ascent of the staircase to track this woman’s passage. By reaching the landing at the top, she has completed her growing process and is ready to move on. This staircase reminds us to take things in life one step at a time, that a promise of reward and satisfactionůthe top of the staircaseůand a new view of the world around you, is a situation you can help create for yourself.”
“In my paintings, when there’s a sidewalk or shoreline going off into the distance, I sometimes use this area to represent people in the subject’s mind. You may notice that in A New Beginning that there are no people down the sidewalk, and that the background is left blank; the woman has visualized an open road in her future. Additionally, I used a different model for this painting than I did in the first two, to further illustrate the metamorphosis: you are not the same person at the top of the staircase that you were at the bottom.”
Join us in welcoming Steve Hanks to the Greenwich Workshop family of artists. We are pleased to offer A New Beginning as one of his first fine art limited editions, an offering even more symbolic as we too look forward to a long and beautiful road ahead.

34. Steve Hanks Country Girls   $250.00

“Country Girls is simply about enjoying the times when your children are small,” says Steve Hanks. Sometimes his pieces convey layers of meaning, this piece, however, in a smaller scale than Hanks usually paints, conveys the beauty of two tow-headed girls enjoying a moment outdoors in the country. In what could be Anytown, USA, Hanks captures an innocent time of pretending and the simple joys of childhood.

35. Steve Hanks Beyond the Horizon Limited Edition   $595.00

“The Pacific Ocean is one of my great loves,” says Hanks. “It’s the ultimate edge. It’s a place for contemplation and reflection, a place to remind us of the scale of our one life against the great forces of nature. ”The ocean, with its vast horizons and pounding surf, has been a source of endless inspiration to Hanks. As with many Hanks paintings, the scene is layered with mystery. Who is this woman? Is she pressed against the edge of the earth or is she contemplating her wide-open future? Beyond the Horizon, with its spectacular sea and landscape, make a provocative and sophisticated statement. Find out why this artist’s star continues to rise.

36. Steve Hanks Waiting in the Rain   $595.00

This inspiring series, which can be found in its entirety in the new book Moving On: The Art of Steve Hanks, follows the artist’s emotional journey from despair to hope. Waiting in the Rain is one of the last paintings in the healing series.
“At this point I had come out of my sadness. I began to think about the future. I thought about the kind of person I would want to come into my life,” says Hanks. “Waiting in the Rain is the visualization of that person, someone supportive and faithful. We would all like to have someone there waiting for us when return from a trip.”
Other Greenwich Workshop Fine Art Limited Editions from the healing series include A New Beginning and New Shoreline.

37. Steve Hanks To Dance Before the Sea and Sky   $695.00

I believe that art can be more than just pretty pictures. Art should bring comfort to people. It should be by our side when we go through good times and hard times, says Steve Hanks. Art should elicit a thought provoking examination of one's own life and place in the world.

We all experience pain, but there are great moments of pleasure all around us too. These moments may often be fleeting and get by us before we are able to fully comprehend their beauty and importance. I have tried to capture a few of these moments in paintings that can be savored for years to come.

The beauty of this joyful moment is infectious. Steve Hanks has succeeded in capturing that perfect, uplifting energy in To Dance Before the Sea and Sky.

38. Steve Hanks Natures Touch   $550.00

The mystery of what lies below the surface is one of water’s most fascinating attractions.The same can be said of the paintings of Steve Hanks, where water and its presence have a nomenclature all their own. “Oceans are vast and we are small in comparison,” says Hanks. “When a painting occurs at seaside, often the subjects are contemplating significant passages in their lives. Rivers are on the move and going somewhere, as are the figures in these paintings. Lakes are most often environments of calm water and safety. Harmony is often the overriding theme.

Bathed in the glow of a warm sun, the woman in this painting is connecting with nature and the uncomplicated joy of life. Poised and confident she dips her foot beneath the surface, an overture to exploring the unknown.”

39. Steve Hanks Love for the Unattainable   $495.00
