I COULD NEVER BE SO LUCKY AGAIN

Countersigned by James H. Doolittle
DESCRIPTION
One of the greatest heroes of World War II is also
one of the most colorful and famous.James H. “Jimmy”
Doolittle set many speed records and engaged in aerial
acrobatics at countless air shows.He was also a test
pilot and the first man ever to fly completely blind –
using only cockpit instruments – from takeoff to
landing.  It is statements like these, in deeds and
words, that make this living legend stand alone.Perhaps
one of his most famous statements was “I would never
want to relive my life; I could never be so lucky again.”It
is therefore a fitting title for William S. Phillips’ fine art
print, which makes the definitive statement of Doolittle’s
remarkable life.  I Could Never Be So Lucky Again is
countersigned by Doolittle and accompanied by a
complimentary copy of the General’s autobiography of
the same title – where he puts into words what Phillips
put into the art, and has his say about every aspect of
his amazing career.

IF ONLY IN MY DREAMS

click on image for

“The tranquility of this Christmas evening, 1943, is
broken for a short time by sounds of a distant B-17. The
aircraft, symbolic of the war, is now small and distant
compared to the warmth and communion of family and
friends gathered at home, but it offers a reminder of the
sacrifices that lie ahead in the titanic struggle known as
World War II.”

I'LL HOLD YOU IN MY DREAMS

Click on image for enlargement
The American Homefront Series, an episodic look at home during World War II, comprises some of William S. Phillips’ most popular and sought-after works. Now, for the first time in over ten years, Phillips has created a new painting in the series: I’ll HoldYou in My Dreams, set on a warm winter day just after the bombing of Pearl Harbor in 1941. Our young Army Air Force Lieutenant stands out from the crowd as he bids his girl goodbye.

Locomotive 4443 of the Noon Coast “Daylight” slowly eases to a stop at Santa Barbara Station.The next stop is San Luis Obispo, 119 miles up the line. With a scheduled ride time of two hours and eighteen minutes, a passenger might have time for dinner in the dining car—if he wanted to spend at least ninety cents on dinner, or splurge on the fresh mountain trout at $1.50. In the air over the station are two P-38 fighter aircraft on their first test flight, a mere day after rolling off the assembly line in Burbank. Full production of operational aircraft has begun and will continue around the clock.

Young soldiers departing for war after Pearl Harbor faced the unknown road ahead with patriotic and passionate commitment and they held their heads high as they bid their loved ones farewell.

INTO THE ARMS OF THE DRAGON

click on image to enlarge

The Doolittle Raid on Japan was always designed as a one way mission: from the carrier to friendly airfields in China by way of Tokyo. Due to early discovery by Japanese picket boats, Captain David Jones and the rest of Crew 5 (aircraft 02283) left the deck of the USS Hornet knowing their one-way trip was perilously shorter. They knew that their B-25 did not have the range to make those friendly airfields, and getting to the China coast or past Japanese-occupied China would take great skill and uncommon luck. At a small break in the cloud cover over Chu Chow the members of Crew 5, who could coax their aircraft no further, left the plane, trusting their parachutes, the wind and the Chinese people to lead them to safety. In Chinese folklore the lóng, or dragon, symbolizes all that is good: abundance, prosperity, good fortune, nobility, and divine protection, as well as the Chinese people themselves. The dragon is believed to be the benevolent guardian of water, as well as life-giving rain and storms. As they tumbled into the stormy night sky, David Jones and his crew entrusted their safety—and their lives—to the arms of the dragon.

The Chinese paid dearly for the aid and shelter they provided to American soldiers. In the Zhejiang-Jiangxi Campaign, Japanese forces killed an estimated 250,000 Chinese civilians as retaliation and intimidation to prevent further assistance of American soldiers. The brave sacrifices of the Chinese saved many lives and solidified the American people in their determination to succeed. William S. Phillips inspiring new limited edition Into the Arms of the Dragon pays tribute to the combined efforts of two nations. Both the Fine Art Limited Edition Giclée Canvas and Fine Art Limited Edition Giclée Print of this spectacular image have been signed by surviving members of Doolittle’s Raiders.

INTO THE TEETH OF THE TIGER

Countersigned by World War II Ace Don Lopez
 
There’s more than one way to bring down an
opposing fighter, as 1st Lt. Don Lopez learned on
December 12, 1943.  The young airman had
experienced his first “jing bao,” or scramble, just after
dawn; soon he and his comrades of the 75th Fighter
Squadron were at 6,000 feet over South Central
China.Lopez ripped his P-40 into the middle of a flight of
Japanese “Oscars” and quickly engaged one of
them.The American and Japanese pilots flew directly at
one another, firing steadily and scoring hits.Lopez
expected his opponent to break off, but neither did so.
Head-on only a few feet apart, the Oscar swerved
right… too late.Lopez lost three feet off the end of his
wing, but the Japanese pilot lost substantially more,
including control of his aircraft, which plunged toward
the earth.Undaunted, Lopez pressed the attack again,
helping to bring down another Oscar… with his guns.
 There’s more than one way to bring down an opposing
fighter … and Don Lopez, now Deputy Director of the
Smithsonian Institution’s National Air and Space
Museum, scored enough victories to join the ranks of
“ace” fighter pilots to emerge from World War II.  Artist
Bill Phillips’ careful research and sure technique
present a stunning portrait of a classic warbird … while
DonLopez provides the true-to-life drama for an exciting
limited edition print.

INTRUDER OUTBOUND

click on image for

Countersigned by Captain Eugene "Red" McDaniel
“The painting occurs at the start of ‘Red McDaniel’s
81st combat mission over Vietnam,” explains Phillips
. “It was an Alpha Strike, which means a full press. It
was on this mission that he was shot down.”
Captain McDaniel left with twenty-six other Navy aircraft
for Van Dien, a truck repair facility in downtown Hanoi.
Despite his extensive experience, McDaniel had to bail
out after his A-6 Intruder was hit by a surface to air
missile.“He was captured by the Viet Cong and held in
a prisoner of war camp,” Phillips says. “What makes
him special was how he survived the torture of his
captivity.” McDaniel was held for six years. And during
that time, he displayed a courage and bravery in the
face of physical and mental torment that elicited the
admiration and respect of everyone who believed in
freedom.That freedom was finally; returned to him. His
convictions had been sorely tested, but “Red” McDaniel
emerged victorious..

LATE SEASON BLOCK ISLAND
 
click on image for

Following in the footsteps of his successful Inns of Christmas series, William S. Phillips now begins Inns of the Seasons, beginning with Late Season, Block Island. William and his wife, Kristi, traveled to Block Island, Rhode Island, to research the local inns and found themselves at the Atlantic Inn, owned by Brad and Anne Marthens. “The inn gives you a feeling of Block Island as it must have been many, many years ago,” says the artist. “It has that laid-back feeling of a classic New England inn.”

Other timeless Phillips landscapes include If Only in My Dreams and Summer of ’45: And All Creation Rejoiced.

LEST WE FORGET

Countersigned by Gen. Curtis E. LeMay; B-17,
signed by Bill Lawley; B-24 signed by Andrew
Low; B-26 signed by James Farrell; P-51 Mustang,
signed by Robin Olds; P-47 Thunderbolt, signed by
Hub Zemke; P-38 Lightning, signed by Gerald
Brown
In a single print, “Lest We Forget” tells the story of
the authenticity, nostalgia and collectibility. The print is
actually composed of seven different Phillips
paintings.The central image is a contemporary scene: a
church yard not far from Peterborough, England.The
memorial statue is dedicated to the 8th Air
Force.Overhead streaks an 8th Air Force F-111 on a low-level training mission.The boy?As Bill Phillips says,
he’s part of a generation that hadn’t even been thought
of during World War II.Yet he and his generation are the
beneficiaries of the sacrifice made by so many airmen
during that conflict.  Surrounding the main image are
six smaller pictures that are historical in nature; they
take the viewer back to the height of the Eighth’s action
in World War II. Formed in August, 1942, this air
armada struck time and again at the enemy’s
heartland, providing air power for the eventual liberation
of Europe.  Signing the central image with artist Bill
Phillips is Gen. Curtis E. LeMay, whose B-17’s and
B-24’s provided the strategic might for Allied
Forces.The smaller pictures all show classic aircraft in
action, and are signed by famous flyers.

THE LIGHT SHALL PREVAIL

click on image for

As Bill Phillips tells us, "My wife Kristi and I have
enjoyed several trips recently to the coastline along
Oregon and California and one day we witnessed a
storm that inspired the image here. The morning
dawned gray with a strong wind, the sea as fierce as
I’ve ever seen it, the waves crashing against the shore
and throwing their spray skyward. We watched as
afternoon waned and stood in awe as the sun broke
through, bringing life to sea and sky. I thought of Psalm
27:1, ‘The Lord, is, my light and my salvation...’ for He,
like a lighthouse, beckons us from the storms of life
into the shelter of His love."

THE LONG GREEN LINE

click on image for

Here comes the U.S. Army! A flight of Bell UH-1
Hueys hammer through a misty, monsoon soaked
Vietnam valley in the central highlands, heading for a
landing area.These utility helicopters became the first
“gunships” when a trooper stood in the open door,
armed with a machine gun.Later the HueyCobra
appeared – slim, speedy, agile, and dangerous, with
heavy armament including a forward firing 20-mm
machine gun.Bill Phillips says no veteran of the fighting
there will everforget the unique sound of a flight
approaching. A faint,distant muttering would fade in and
out as bends I thevalleys muffled the sound.It would
grow quickly to asudden thunder, rumbling between
hills, echoing thelength of every glade that the
helicopters darted throughon their way to or from the
target of the day.

THE LONG RIDE HOME

click on image for
enlargement
In TheLong Ride Home, Phillips sets the P-51D
flown by Lieutenant Colonel Wayne Blickenstaff, and
the B-17’s he’s escorting, against a sea of serene
clouds and the colors of the sunset to signify the
oncoming end of World War II.
“It’s late 1944,” Phillips explains. “It’s been a long day
and a long mission, but soon the fighters will return to
base for debriefing and rest. I wanted to get that across
with just the light and color.” He succeeds in conveying
the hope these pilots must have felt as they returned to
safety. The men may have been tired, but they were
also satisfied with a job well done. The final gift was
getting back to base in one piece.

LOW PASS FOR THE HOME FOLKS

Before the pilots head off for their first campaign,
they fly their BF109s over their home town to the delight
of their neighbors.
“This happened numerous times in the United States
and Britain too,” Phillips says. “It was totally illegal, but
the people on the ground loved it.Of course, if the High
Command knew about it, they would go nuts. But here,
there’s a real sense of innocence in nature-and in the
pilots who came home before their first taste of battle to
say,’hey folks, look at what I can do!’”
