He lived in Manteca, California for nineteen years, where he was active in the local art scene while working professionally as an electrician.

After he moved to Lockeford, California, he joined the Lodi Art Center. Rawlins passed away in 2008. Condition This piece looks good overall with no cracks.It has minor wear with a few light scuffs. As shown in Photo 7, there is a small chip to the back side. There are some very small, scattered flakes (examples are shown in Photo 8); someone has colored some of these with black ink or paint. There is some masking tape residue beneath which I have not removed. Scattered, tiny specks of white wall paint are as found.
