Bill Hampton Original
Years ago a friend gave me a beautiful life like painting of an Native American woman holding a little girl. The little girl has her arms around the womans neck, both seem to be looking into the distance. It is on canvas and framed in a hand stained wood frame. It is signed Bill Hampton in the lower right corner and has a c with a circle around it. You can see and feel the brush strokes. Does anyone know the name or year of this painting? I am trying to find out if it is an original. Any information would be helpful.

Bill Hampton Print
To Susie or Bret Hampton or anyone in the know: I just bought a print with the signature Bill Hampton and a copywright symbol. Did his signature vary greatly over his career (i.e. from Bill to William to W. Hampton)? My print is of a young Plains Indian Girl with strings of turqoise & coral, some bead work on her rawhide dress and braids. Looks similiar to an old lithograph. The verse is "Those who bring sunshine into the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves".

I just acquired an oil painting with a girl herding 5 geese. The girl has a stick in her hand. It is quite nice and well framed. The girl has a straw hat, is wearing a white shawl and is wearing black boots. The painting is signed by Hampton. I imagine this is an original and he did a series? However, mine is just signed Hampton(no W.) I would like to know more...

While looking on the net for info, on Bill Hampton I stumbled onto this site. I have a framed picutre I picked up at a moving sale. Its the rugged worn out cowboy with the caption 'There's a hell of a lot of things they didn't tell me when I hired on with this outfit'. I dont know how well it would copy but I will be willing to give it a try if anyone wants me to.

Bill Hampton
Hi my grandparents were best friends with Bill & Alice Hampton. They all resided in Apple Valley Calif until they passed away. When I was a toddler in 1965 Bill used me as a model for an small indian child. He also used my grandfather as a model for a different subject "The China Man" way off from his usual western subjects.
My grandparents owned a vast amount of his work. But unfortunately there was a fire and almost all was lost except a few pieces which I am very fortunate to have in my possesion.
