Sunny Nap At The Beach

Hi everybody. Shorebirds are one of my major focal points on my Coastal Journey. They have an infinite variety of shapes , sizes and behaviors in addition to their simple beauty. Isn't it amazing how relaxed this lady is enough to close hers eyes and enjoy the warmth of the sun?

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.


Birds flying high you know how I feel
Sun in the sky you know how I feel
Breeze driftin' on by you know how I feel
It's a new dawn
It's a new day
It's a new life for me yeah
It's a new dawn, it's a new day, it's a new life for me
And I'm feeling good

Fish in the sea, you know how I feel
River running free, you know how I feel
Blossom on the tree, you know how I feel
It's a new dawn
It's a new day
It's a new life
For me
And I'm feeling good

Songwriters LESLIE BRICUSSE, ANTHONY NEWLEY

Rainy Day

Hi everybody. I love a rainy day. Rainy days at the beach offer a wealth of joy in different ways than a welcome day of bright blue sky sunshine does.

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.

You can catch many more of my Coastal Journey ideas in oil on canvas fine art at https://alanphillipstudio.com/ I invite you to join my newsletter email group too where I post my newest works first and have offers exclusive to my friends.
