Piece description from the artist
A perfect summer afternoon at the beach would include reading a book. The empty chair might be for the person in the water. This becomes the mood of this artwork.
Phil has always been interested in art
As a graphic artist, he found that his understanding of light and shadow, form and color, guided his illustrations in a real and convincing manner.
Artist that he admired were: Winslow Homer, FJ Waugh and JMW Turner to name a few.
Phil is inspired by windswept dunes, and the wild plants that struggle to grow around them, the relentless sea pounding sand and rocks. These elements are an exciting challenge for me.
He Inviting the viewer to share in his emotions about these subjects.
