Sunday Morning Heading Into St. Augustine

    Welcome
    Hi everybody. 
    "Sunday Morning Heading Into St. Augustine" 15" x 20" oil on canvas. 
    There are many favorite things I have found here on the coast of Northeast Florida and there are special touchstones within those favorite things. I love going to St. Augustine and when I do and I drive A1A it just brings delight to see the carousel both for it's visual appeal and that I used to bring my daughter from the age of two for a ride on the painted ponies that go up and down.

    "Higher Ground"


    Welcome.

    Hi everybody.
    Higher Ground”  15” x 20” oil on wrap around canvas.The title of this work of art came to me in a flash, similar as the one that inspired me to paint it. It was, “The Tender Kiss of an Infinite Moment”, that was my first thought about it. Truth is, that is what it felt like. Making the art is my way of celebrating that and perhaps, if I’m lucky, and I capture it, you feel it too!
    When I encounter something as simple as a view from the dunes down to the sand and sea infused with the ethereal light here in Florida I am elevated to another level, instantly. Higher ground is where my intention is daily for myself and my art. Simplifying and changing the title is as much a salute to nature in her efficiency as the magnificence of her expression.
    Thank you for looking at my art today. It is available for purchase. Email me if you are interested in this work alanlovesart@gmail.com or to discuss a commissioned project. Please share with your friends if you enjoy it.  To see more. https://alanphillipstudio.com/

    Study For Foster's Tern

    Welcome. Hi everybody.


    Until I lived at the beach and got to see these birds and their clan in action on a regular basis I didn't realize just how fast they are. Terns in flight are so angular and look like elegant sharp fighter jets streamlined and powerful.

    I see more Common Terns and Royal Terns than any Foster's Terns. I love the markings and subtle color variations as well as some of the brighter reds in feet and bills as a counterpoint to all the grays.

    I wanted to keep the studies nice and loose with washes and just a hint of temperature change in some of the hues with not more than three to four value changes.

    Thank you for looking at my work today. If you would like to see more please stop by

    Watercolor study of Ring Billed Gull


    Welcome. Hi everybody.

    I am such a great fan of shorebirds, gulls especially. I love their subtle tones, how they play against the backdrop of the sea on gray day or splashed with sunlight. Their community-flock behavior, content to be among their own.

    Sometimes it is a simple thing that is the most beautiful. The subtle grays, just a slight counterpoint of yellow, a deliberate use of minimal detail make this a lovely watercolor that looks like it just fell of the brush. I like the variation of the outer edge, controlled but not straight edged.


    All of these elements give this study a fresh feeling, like there is air in it and around it.

    The Gate To The Secret Garden

    Welcome.

    Hi everybody.
    There is something magical about the home and adjoining oceanfront cottage that support this ever- blooming lush garden. Showcasing that large starfish as a work of art on the gate inviting welcome with a few touches of branches (line work) is artistry in living. Creating your environment and shaping a collaboration with nature and nurturing it so that you are surrounded by beauty is an act of love. I walk by and it always elevates my awareness and joy. Gratitude.joy. Gratitude.

    The Italian Job


    Welcome.

    Hi everybody. I pass this oceanfront home on almost every walk I take northward up the beach. I will get around to painting a portrait of it one day. I probably have taken 50 different days of shots of it with clouds, in the rain, sunny mornings and afternoons and sunsets over a timeline of 8 years. It speaks to me. I love the palette. I dig how it's sort of tucked in, that pot of geraniums on the upper terrace.

    Now, I don't know that this place or the owners are Italian but perhaps it has just a touch of Tuscan flavor?

    If you would like to see more of my photography come find me and follow on Facebook and come visit to see and enjoy my Coastal Journey in oils and watercolors at https://alanphillipstudio.com/ I appreciate you looking at my art today.

    The Answer Is Blowin' The Wind


    Welcome.

    Hi everybody. This photograph is from Little Talbot Island facing west. Behind me is the expanse of the Atlantic Ocean. The lean of these trees, most of them anyway seem to be south to north and it must take years for them to grow and in doing so have the tolerance to grow in the direction of the prevailing wind. It is a lesson in flexibility for me.

    I love the energy flow evident in the movement of the trunk and limbs and the detail in the markings on the bark. It is simple yet lovely in it's design.

    Miss Hazel and Becky Joe

    Welcome.

    Hi everybody. I know it might appear that I am nostalgic. Nope. I love the new tools we have, speed, communications and production that we all enjoy from the advances technology has brought us.

    However in that process I have no wish to discard that which is profoundly stable, authentic, whole, delivers what it promises and can endure. I love the patina of things that have been in use for a while, well maintained and continue to provide service. Quality matters.

    Whenever I visit Mayport, Florida and mind you this particular venue as any semblance of the fishing village it once was is being dismantled by the minute I still enjoy seeing these working shrimp boats. They are sturdy, solid, dependable and the end result for me is some of the best seafood on the planet in the catch that they bring to dock every day.

    This is another from art series photographs of my coastal journey.

    There are many beautiful fine art paintings in oils and watercolor on my website. Come and visit https://alanphillipstudio.com/ and if you enjoy what you see of my art here please share with your friends! I am now on Facebook as well and you can follow me there!

    Sunday Morning Glories

    Welcome.

    Hi everybody. Funny, that as I speak with you this morning I am listening to Kenny Rankin and the tune on right now is "You Are So Beautiful To Me".

    Morning Glories are special to me. They are in the same sort of good karma recognition as seeing dolphins or a red tailed hawk or eagle on the wing. When I spot them it is rare and the quality, authentic joy I experience at getting to enjoy their beauty makes me smile. These flowers only show in the morning sun around here. They are tucked back enough on the dunes that you actually have to be paying attention to see them especially the white ones. They are so exceptionally delicate and I love the random rhythms they form stretching on runners over the geography of the dunes.

    If you would like to see more of my coastal journey in my fine art oil and watercolor paintings please come visit at https://alanphillipstudio.com/ and now you can come follow me on Facebook as well.

    Echo On A Summer Breeze




    Hi everybody. Welcome. Just finished up a painting of our local Brown Pelicans gliding along a rising wave! This painting would rock the lobby of a coastal hotel, don’t you think? I am looking for a commissioned project creating a series of works of coastal shorebirds and coastal flora featured in the open spaces of a large interior.

    It might be a hotel or healthcare facility bringing some extra warmth and humanity to the common spaces. Yes, it would look great in an oceanfront home with the interior to accommodate it or the conference room at headquarters!! It is six feet long and two and a half feet high in oil on gallery wrap canvas. This is one of the scenes that I often hear people speaking of with great affection about our shoreline here in Florida. There is something special about seeing the grace in a family of these birds in unison working the updraft of a wave effortlessly on a summer day at the beach. If you look with intention you will see that each pelican is slightly different.

    Capturing subtle shifts in repeated patterns is one of my favorite visual nuances. I had this view out on the ocean, calmly sitting on my nine foot longboard awaiting a swell, tasting the salt on my lips, feeling the warm sun on my back and a little surprised by these fascinating creatures cruising by whose origins may date back to the Mesozoic Era. Creating art that illuminates the beauty of other species and our one shared ocean, fostering  connection and celebrating this hugely important resource on our planet is my passion and mission.

    Thank you for looking at my art today.

    Howling Wolf Calls to The Fire & Rain


    Welcome.
    Hi everybody
    I have always loved open spaces even as a child. Observing the changing sky and clouds have held a certain magical fascination for me. Color, space, light and form, combined with imagination, what else could a young artist ask for? Nature presents new wonders to me daily and I celebrate!

    First Signs Of Spring


    First Signs Of Spring

    The school on the hill was a magical place. I was stranger in a strange land. There were certain times though, I found great joy in camaraderie. Mostly, I was a multitude of one weaving through the crowd.

    There is snow falling in huge flakes that are barely visible in the stark white morning as I peek out my dorm window at 5 am. No one else is up. I get dressed and push open the snowbound door with stealth and determination.

    Borrowing Dave’s Head skis leaning against the wall outside I shuffle up the hill to the crest of the ridge out back that overlooks the woods, pause for a look at the breathless beauty of it all. I push off.

    The only sound I hear is the slip, slip, whish-sound of the skis in the wet snow. I feel like I am flying, surrounded in a kind of delightful white purity with soft puffy snowflakes gently peppering my face. I can’t stop laughing. If you were standing on that very crest of the hill with your rosy cheeks, cozy in your goose down parka you would have seen me disappear down the trails into the woods.

     I was very late for class.

    They were often heavy winters facing Parker Mountain in Center Strafford, New Hampshire. I didn’t mind. I skied in the snow-dusted dawn.

    One of the shared moments that I savored every year that I attended was the first warm day that you could take your shirt off outside in springtime. It was a revelation, almost a rite of passage, a reward for having endured the cold and snow. A few pals and I would hitchhike down to Bow Lake on a Saturday morning sit on the rocks and soak up the suns warming rays. Here’s to Bow Lake and that moment.
    This is an oil and watercolor on board 17" x 27"  Thank you for looking at my art today. https://alanphillipstudio.com/ stop by my website to see more of my Coastal Journey if you like this please share it with your friends. You can now follow my art/photography and writing on Facebook also!

    Sacred Steps


    Welcome.

    Hi everybody!


    Sacred Steps


    I love an old road
    It doesn’t care about my wandering shoes
    Traipsing down it’s weary bones out walking my visionary muse

    I got a feelin’ for old roads
    I love your cracks and craggy crumbling surface bending in the silent heft
    Your empathetic non - resistance about my choices right or left

    I find the space I crave on an old road
    Freedom from relentless world discord
    You calm me from the unraveling cacophony of people being bored

    I wonder on the old roads
    Expanding across your serene and lovely views
    You give my frazzled mind a respite and my energy renews

    Welcome.

    Hi everybody. "KONA" is my watercolor on watercolor board 15" x 20".

    He was all heart and kindness. This was a commission. Kona and I became good friends when I cared for him when just a pup while his humans were away.

    Feelin Good


    Welcome.

    Hi everybody. I first heard the song "Feelin Good" when I was a kid in my mother's house. Nina Simone was the vocalist. I believed every word she sang.

    Breeze driftin' on by you know how I feel
    It's a new dawn
    It's a new day

    A Little Thrill At Pete's Bar & Grille.

    Welcome.

    Hi everybody. Well, it is nature after all! I like to step outside the lines occasionally just for fun with my art photography. This is one of those times!!

    It’s overwhelming.  I’m exhausted. It’s the work, the stress, the POTUS tweets
    My remedy is to grab my baby and head on down to Pete’s


    I say “Darlin, the madness is too much and we’ve got to get out!!”
    She smiles. “I’ll put on my red dress and my high heel sneakers lover. No need to shout!”


    I say “Honey, you are lookin’ so tempting and sexy  tonight
    You better wear some boxing gloves in case Doug Oakes might wanna fight.”


    We waltz right in,  greet our tribe and hoist a few
    Most nights it’s the nest over which the cuckoo flew
    We lay our quarter down,  pick up a cue
    The eight ball is my pal tonight. Stick and ball know what to do

    Now we’re feelin ahh-right,  a full adjustment from our week of troubles
    Staggering outside we laugh out loud at the sunset in our beer goggle bubbles!

    The Soaring Soul

    Welcome.

    Hi everybody. Wouldn't it be fun to be a bird? Just for a minute, an hour? Lift off and fly wherever you want. I see the kite boarders and the folks with the power parasailing-gliders and boy does it look like a blast having all that air time and being in control of it.

    I have experienced air time at different occasions in my life. It is exhilarating and peaceful at the same time. This is one of my art photographs expressing the idea of freedom in gliding over the land and the beauty of the coast.

    In The Channel

    Welcome. Hi everybody.

    We here at the beaches all love St. Augustine. I was out on a Sunday morning walkabout down in Vilano beach with my feet in the perfect blue green water just breathing in the fresh salty air and this sloop came up the channel to head out towards the open water passing the St. Augustine Lighthouse and I was inspired to make a painting of the moment. The sailor looks like he is in command of his ship and heading to his freedom.

    Now you can have a gorgeous print on a canvas of this 6' x 4' oil painting on canvas in a range of custom sizes!!! Here-

    I grew this flower from a tiny plant cutting in my backyard which grew to 7 feet tall and produced these enormous, colorful, delicate and smile growing blossoms! It called to me to paint it!

    She Listens to Seashells by the Sea Shore


    Welcome.

    Hi everybody. This is my watercolor 22" x 36" on Moulin Du Roy cold press 300lb watercolor paper. It is the first in a series of watercolor paintings for a children's book I have written about a little girl and her adventures living by the coast.

    I like the composition and the tones very much in this painting as well as a slight view from above. It also captures a very Floridian ambient soft sunlight. The upper right area of blue was left open to be able to accommodate a block of type.
