New Mexico and the Southwest:  Philip discovered the Desert Southwest early, recognizing the striking beauty and boldness of the landscape as an endless source of subjects for his work.  Additionally, Philip's first art teacher was Alfonso Sosa, abstract expressionist, who was from Albuquerque.  Phil once stated:  "There has always been a connection between artists who painted in Maine and New Mexico.  Mardsden Hartley, for an example, George Bellows, John Mairn and Georgia O'Keefe who painted and lived in New Mexico.  Art museums in New Mexico such as those in Roswell and Santa Fe show Maine artists painting New Mexico landscapes.  Much of my New Mexico art is of landscapes, but I was also inspired by Georgia O'Keefe's work of the San Francisco de Asis Mission Church on the Plaza in Rancho de Taos, and I painted several pieces based on this.  About 1994-1995 I again traveled to New Mexico and was reminded on the first trip I took to the southwest in 1959, traveling along Old Route 66.  No fences, no commercialism, just vast, raw New Mexico landscape.  I did a series inspired by the road of Hwy 54 from Las Cruces to Tucumcari, and years later did another series based on some old sketches from earlier trips to New Mexico and called it "New Mexico Revisited."
