MOONWATCHERS

DESCRIPTION
The Moonwatchers is a celebration of commitment
and enduring romance,” he explains.“It is a love story
that speaks of love in its various stages.ou cannot help
but wonder how many times our moonwatchers have
held hands and shared dreams as the seasons passed
and each new moon waxed and waned.Here, on a warm
autumn afternoon, the couple sits quietly with their
dogs, gazing out across chapters of their lives.Here is
the house that has heard the laughter of children.There
is the church where they married; in the distance, their
moon.”  Each of the components of this nostalgic view
is a symbolic chapter in the lives of our
moonwatchers.And there, off in the distance, is the
Phillips hallmark - a solitary aircraft enjoying the lunar
view from aloft

.These fighters were the famed “Flying Tigers,” army
and navy pilots who in 1941 signed a contract to fly for
the Chinese.They resigned theirAmerican commissions
(with President Roosevelt’s blessing), sailed for Asia,
and furnished, at last, solid competition for the veteran
“Eagles of Nippon,” who had ruled the skies over China
since the mid-1930’s
The AVG didn’t get into action until after Japan
attacked Pearl Harbor.Then its squadrons got a cram
course in tactics from their famed commander, Col
. Claire Chennault.Fight in pairs, he told them.Hit and
run, turn, and hit again.The new P-40s were daubed
with Chinese markings and shark mouths, and were
soon at work.Here, during one of many Japanese raids
in early 1942, Bob Neale and a wingman catch the
Sallys cold.
The Flying Tigers shot down allbut a couple.According
to AVG legend, the pilots’ usual noisy post-scramble
exultation was somewhat cooled when Chennault said,
“Next time get’em all.”

NEW SOUNDS IN AN ANCIENT
CANYON

Click on image for
Enlargement
Phillips’ passion for aviation is second only to his infatuation with the American experience and the impact that the land, its people, its history and its values have upon one another. This is what he calls The American Landscape, paintings about a time, a place and the course of American events.

The Grand Canyon is the iconic American landscape. For millennia, the only sounds heard in the Canyon were those of the elements and all things wild. As man arrived the sounds of early domestication could, only faintly, be heard. By the late 1800s, outfits such as Wellington Starky’s Diamond Bar Ranch heralded the news that cattle was king, even in the Grand Canyon.

In 1919, man took to the skies over the Canyon for the first time. A mere nine years later, Grand Canyon Airlines was taking tourists on scenic flights in Ford Tri-Motors such as this one, bouncing the drone of radial engines from ancient rim to ancient rim. Flights such as this confirmed that as yet another era neared its end in the Canyon, a new one had begun as the crown jewel of the American Landscape.

Tail End Charlie, the last plane in an aircraft
formation, is usually most vulnerable to attack. The
crew of 478, however, has survived flak, fighters and
bone-chilling cold of high altitude battle to complete yet
another in a long series of missions. Ahead is the
welcome homecoming of debriefing, hot meals and a
warm bed. On this mission there will be no empty
bunks for the crew of 478.
The 478 of No Empty Bunks Tonight was a B-24 of the
578th Bomb Squadron, 392ndBomb Group, 2ndDivision,
Eighth Air Force based out of Wendling, England in
1944.

Squadron sitting peacefully under a blanket of snow at
its home base in Framlingham, England.
As happened on many occasions during World War II,
a cold moist air mass has moved south from the Arctic,
covering both England and the Continent in heavy
clouds and snow.On this day at least, there would be
peace for the bomber crews as well as for those against
whom they flew.

ON WINGS AND A PRAYER

click on image for
enlargement
Dawn breaks over the English countryside.  Birds
greet the morning with song, while milk cows in the
distant fields moo softly…. Once these sounds would
have heralded a peaceful day, but this is the summer of
1940 and the island nation is in the grips of war - the
Battle of Britain.  A woman riding her bicycle, hearing
the roar of approaching aircraft, stops to gaze upward
. She watches Spitfires from 92 Squadron streak
across the sky, determined to search out and destroy
the fighters and bombers of Hitler’s Luftwaffe. Silently,
the woman offers up a prayer…. Through its rich, warm
colors and delicate use of light and shading, Phillips’
image implicitly conveys a lasting message of hope

OUT OF THE SQUALL LINE

click on image for
enlargement
Following in the tradition of his previous aircraft carrier 
paintings, including Home is the Hunter, Threading the Eye
of the Needle, Caping the Tico and America on the Move 
(several Sold Out at Publisher), William S. Phillips brings us
the latest in his impressive fleet, reproduced at a “Nimitz 
Class” size. While researching Out of the Squall Line, 
Phillips spent ten days aboard the USS Harry S. Truman 
(CVN 75), where he was given the opportunity to see every 
aspect of the ship and its flight operations. In a personal 
challenge, Phillips included at least one portion of each of 
the Truman’s air wing in the painting.
The Truman is the eighth Nimitz Class aircraft carrier 
authorized to be built by Congress, and was christened in 
1996 in Newport News, Virginia. The carrier has a crew of 
more than 160 officers and 3,200 sailors, and recently 
participated in Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation
Iraqi Freedom.

A powerful F-104 Starfighter pulls over the top of a
loop, performing aerial acrobatics high above the
Southern California desert. This sleek fighting machine,
first flown in 1954, set records for “time to climb” (from a
standing start to given altitude) at seven different levels.

PHANTOM THUNDER

click on image for

In the grand tradition of his Thunder in the Canyon,
Into the Throne Room of God and Those Last Critical
Moments (all sold out at Publisher), William S.
 Phillips returns to the skies in his new Greenwich
Workshop release, Phantom Thunder. From the thrill of
lift-off to the extraordinary exhilaration of in-flight action,
Bill is truly a master of the aviation art world. Here, in
his latest work, the artist presents us with an
awe-inspiring panorama that pays tribute to a pair of
American heroes. “Flying through storm-tossed skies,
Phantoms of VF-96, the Flying Falcons,
 return from a strike over North Vietnam,” Bill said.
“Aircraft #5800, ShowTime 100, was the ‘CAG bird’
flown by LT. Randy Cunningham and LT(JG) Willie
Driscoll when, on May 10th, 1972, they downed three
MiG-17s, added to their previous two, they became
America’s first Vietnam aces.”

PLOESTI: INTO THE FIRE AND THE FURY

click on image for

Ploesti: Into the Fire and Fury commemorates one
of the most important missions of World War II. “Tidal
Wave” was the code name for the town of Ploesti in
Romania, which supplied approximately one third of all
the Nazis’ fuel oil. “On the first of August, 1943,”
Phillips explains, “then-General Leon Johnson’s aircraft,
a B-24D of the 67thbomb squadron, 44thbomb group,
took off on ‘Operation Soapsuds’ to pound the Ploesti
installations. For his actions that day, Colonel Johnson
received a Medal of Honor.”

 PRAYER FOR MY BROTHER

click on image for

After looking at this powerful work, it may not
surprise you to learn that Phillips is a former firefighter.
(Bill left the profession after 16 years when he began to
earn a living through his art.) Bill has painted this iconic
and heroic work of art to support firefighters nationwide
He hopes that the outpouring of support for New York
fire fighters continues to raise awareness and
appreciation for the everyday, unsung heroes in
communities everywhere. The Greenwich Workshop will
donate a portion of proceeds to the NationalFallen
Firefighters Foundation to benefit families of lost
firefighters nationwide

POINT BONITA: LAST LIGHT

click on image for
enlargement
Distinguished by its gleaming white suspension 
bridge and captured in the radiant glow of twilight, Point
Bonita: Last Light is a stunning portrait of a maritime
 landmark. And, in classic Phillips’ style it also pays
tribute to San Francisco, The Golden Gate Bridge, the
U.S. Navy and the U.S. Coast Guard (look closely)
. With all the different levels of appeal, we suggest you
reserve it promptly—several of Bill’s other recent
lighthouse prints, such as The Light Keeper’s Gift, have
quickly gone into low inventory or sold out at publisher.
