The most recent dated work is from 1988. This later work, in oil, is primarily of rural scenes — fields of poppys, river estuaries, the Fenlands. One painting is described as looking through the window of a fisherman's cottage out onto a beach, possibly Aldeburgh. Aldeburgh is a Suffolk coastal town about half-way between Lowestoft in the north and Felixstowe in the south.
In the late 1960s, O'Hanlon would appear to have been producing romantic illustrations in colour for women's magazines and at least one cover for June and School Friend (1968). How extensive O'Hanlon's contributions in these areas were is unknown.
