Tender Cares of Autumn (canvas) by William Phillips
Fall has arrived in Phillip’s Bay, artist William Phillips’ magical and imaginary small town, where life progresses- slowly and serenely- on its gentle path. Here, a young woman strolls to Beecher house, the home of the 19th century poet, as the lavender glow of sky draws a quiet close to a peaceful day.
Phillips grew up loving art but never thought he could make it his livelihood. At college he majored in criminology and he had been accepted into law school when four of his paintings were sold at an airport restaurant. That was all the incentive he needed to begin his work as a fine art painter. Bill Phillips is now the aviation artist of choice for many American heroes and the nostalgic landscape artist of choice for many collectors. Bill’s strengths as a landscape painter are what gave him an edge in the aviation field: respect and reverence for a time and place. When one sees his aviation pieces, thoughts are about the courageous individuals who risked their lives for our freedom. In Bill’s landscapes, the viewer understands fully what that freedom is . . . the precious values that make life worth living.
