There is indeed at least one other oil painting by James Hamil (born 1937) and it was sold through Dirk Soulis Auctions in 2011. The painting is a half portrait of a male Bandito with bullets strapped across his chest. It measures 20" x 16" and sold for $110 against an estimate of $100 - $300. His watercolors carry average auction estimate of $100 - $200. Before the recession the estimates on watercolors were $200 - $400. The highest auction sale of a work by Hamil was $625 in 2015 for a sweeping Nebraska field landscape measuring 22" x 33.5" the estimate was $100 - $200.
On today's market, your oil still life that is incomplete would carry an auction estimate of $100 - $300. The suggested insurance or replacement value is $800.
