Rise Phoenix by * RoyAllenHunt *


Small (21.3" x 16.4")

Available to buy on…

In homage to LaBelle and the phenomenal song Phoneix. Labelle’s; Patti, Nona and Sarah’s, galactic vocals singing Nona Hendryx’s stellar lyrics were my inspiration for this piece. Sony DSC F717: Painted with light then Photoshop finished.


Phoenix -The Amazing Flight of a Lone Star
Nona Hendryx © 1975

Dance the blues – See how she dances
to bring us the news – See how she dances
Ashes and news – See how she dances
Rise from the blues.
The amazing flight of a lone star
Just like heaven and hell reaches so very far.
Wrapped up in pages of yesterday’s news
Sing with the devil and dances the blues.
In a red dress she dances the blues
Races the dawn to bring us the news.
Now that I’m here I’ll tell you the news
Come on sing the news.
We’ve all got to go like we come before or after the sun.
A single string guitar
Plays the amazing flight of a lone star.
See how she dances ashes and news.
You were tired of waiting in shadows
Hiding thoughts of new ways in old mason jars
Sweet on the edges but much more inside
Running in races, never using the prize.
Now open your eyes – Rise Phoenix
and dance the blues – Rise Phoenix
Now that I’m here – Rise Phoenix
I’ll tell you the news – Rise.
Come on sing the news.
We’ve all got to go like we come before or after the sun
and if you believe in the one
you’ll be living the one life God’s given.
Then Phoenix. Then Phoenix. Then Phoenix.

    Wow! That’s a fantastic piece of artwork Roy. It looks “alive”. I can see the fire at the top, while the bottom has already solidified. Listening to Nona Hendrix music alongside, your artwork starts to take live. Well done Roy. Congratulations!

  • Thank you very much Hernan. Glad you like it.
