THUNDER IN THE CANYON MASTERWORK  Giclee On Canvas

NOTES: THUNDER IN THE CANYON. We hear the dominant roar of freedom’s voice as the U.S. Air Force Demonstration Squadron, the Thunderbirds, pulls tightly into its famed delta formation and slices into turbulent air above Arizona’s Grand Canyon. We listen for an echoing growl of thunder as a mythical Thor reigns throughout the sky, leaving distant vestiges of a passing storm. Our eyes are drawn throughout the painting, from the Colorado River far below to the crimson, sun-tipped heights, from the misty clouds hovering over the gorge to the tops of the cumulus build-ups reflecting a welcoming sunlight. We are invited to share the artist’s two loves―landscape and aviation. Phillips has researched his subjects well. He has flown over and hiked throughout the majestic canyon, familiarizing himself with its dramatic buttes, mesas and the variegated beauty of its eroded walls. He has flown with the Thunderbirds, the name honoring the Native American legendary and masterful bird and with tactical F-16 squadron pilots. The Thunderbirds, resplendent in red, white and blue, represent the U.S. Air Force and the United States of America and invoke feelings of pride and patriotism in the millions of people who are treated to their aerial displays. The elite team, which performed its inaugural flight in 1953, was equipped initially with the F-84G aircraft. Thirty years after rising from the Southwestern desert at Luke Air Force Base, the team selected the sleek F-16. Since 1983, this multi-task fighter has benefited the Squadron and all who fly her in protection of the boundaries of twenty-four nations. .

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."
