ANNIVERSARY CANVASCanvas

NOTES: Thrashing away on three engines and a feathered prop, with flak damage to her wing and tail, this B-17F has survived another brutal mission over Germany―but just barely. The Betty Boop/Pistol Packin’ Mama will make it through this day. The white line on the horizon is a bomber crew’s most prayed-for-sight: the chalk cliffs of England. Now the P-47 escort, mixture leaned out & flying on fumes, can peel off and slide down toward their base.

Operating out of Framlingham, England on October 10, 1943, Betty Boop/Pistol Packin’ Mama, of the 390th Bomb Group, 570th Bomb Squadron, was one of 133 B-17s dispatched for a daylight raid on Munster to target the railroad station and yard. Takeoff went smoothly and twelve P47 fighter escorts arrived to provide top cover, until reaching the limit of the fighters’ range. At that crucial juncture, the fighters turned for England and the bombers faced unrestrained German fighters while making their runs―a concentrated and violent attack.

The sky was blackened with flak and peppered with over 200 German fighters including Fock-Wulf 190s, Junkers 88s and Messerschmitt 109s, 110s and 210s. For the 390th, eight crews and aircraft, out of their departing nineteen, were lost. The mission was grueling; the losses were brutal.

As the clouds part in this Bill Phillips’ trademark sky and rays of sunlight and hope stream down upon the chalk cliffs of England. Cold-sweat can begin to dry as another grueling mission nears its end and this B-17’s crew thanks the Lord for answering its fervent prayers.

Bill Phillips’ When Prayers are Answered is a visually stunning work of contemporary art from one of the most sought-after and collected aviation artists of our time―an exquisite piece of historic and patriotic art for your home or office.

William Phillips bio

"Phillips grew up loving art but never thought he could make it his livelihood. At college he majored in criminology and 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 a renowned aviation artist and the landscape artist of choice for many collectors. Bill's strengths as a landscape painter, a respect and reverence for a time and place, help him when painting aviation as well as classic landscapes. Phillips often spends days observing landscape subjects. Finding companionship with the land, he is able to convey the boundlessness of nature on the painted canvas inspiring a reverence for the natural landscape in its beholders. After one of his paintings was presented to King Hussein of Jordan, Phillips was commissioned by the Royal Jordanian Air Force. He developed sixteen major paintings, many of which now hang in the Royal Jordanian Air Force Museum in Amman. The Smithsonian Institution s National Air and Space Museum presented a one-man show of Phillips work in 1986. He is one of only a few artists to have been so honored. In 1988, Phillips was chosen to be a U.S. Navy combat artist. For his outstanding work, the artist was awarded the Navy s Meritorious Public Service Award and the Air Force Sergeants Association s Americanism Medal. At the prestigious annual fund raiser for the National Park Service, Bill s work has been included in the Top 100 each year he has entered the competition and his work has won the Art History Award twice. Phillips was selected as the Fall 2004 Artist in Residence at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and tapped by the U.S. Postal Service to paint the stamp illustrations and header design for a pane of twenty stamps in 1997 entitled Classic American Aircraft. He was chosen again in 2005 for a pane of twenty stamps (ten designs) entitled American Advances in Aviation."
