Gus

12" x  16"  Colour Photographic Reproduction

18.95

The Original Piece Was Completed In 1994 12 x 16 Pencil & Watercolour on Paper

Gus Grissom poses in front of his Mercury- Redstone at Cape Canaveral. The launcher is being fuelled for launch, which explains the venting. Grissom died in the Apollo-1 fire in 1967, but had he lived he had a good chance of becoming the first man on the moon. That is why I added the moon to this painting.

Broken Bolt

This painting shows Pad Leader Guenter Wendt, holding a bolt from the hatch of the Friendship 7 spacecraft behind him. Astronaut John Glenn was about to be launched into earth orbit and technicians had trouble closing the reluctant hatch. In the process a bolt broke and had to be replaced. The painting was commissioned by the person who now owns that bolt.

John Young and Bob Crippen pose in front of Columbia, poised for its maiden flight in April 1981. I witnessed that launch from the press site at KSC, so this scene has special meaning to me.

Fly Away
12" x  16"  Colour Photographic Reproduction
   18.95
The Original Piece Was Completed in 1995  -  12 x 16 Mixed Media on Paper

Bruce McCandless flies away from the Space Shuttle Challenger in February of 1984 during the first-ever un-tethered EVA. He piloted his Manned Manoeuvring Unit about 100 meters away from the Challenger before returning. This has always been one of my favourite Shuttle flights and, although the photos that were taken are beautiful, I wanted to paint a scene that showed both McCandless and the Challenger in one view.

Hubble Story

The Original Piece Was Completed in 2005 -  12 x 12  Watercolour on Paper

In October 2005 former astronaut Story Musgrave was the keynote speaker at the Astro Assembly of the Skyscrapers, the Amateur Astronomical Society of Rhode Island. The society approached me to ask if I wanted to do a painting that they could present to Musgrave and "Hubble Story" is the result. Musgrave loves art and he appreciated the gift very much. He said he would certainly hang it on his wall.

This portrait of Shuttle commander Dick Covey was presented to him when he visited the Netherlands after the successful Hubble repair mission in 1993. He was very pleased with it and later sent me a signed and framed photo that he had made of the Hubble Space Telescope.

Saving Skylab

The Original Piece Was Completed in 1998  -  16 x 12 Watercolour on Paper
An Apollo spacecraft approaches the crippled Skylab space station in earth orbit in 1973. With commander Pete Conrad at the controls of the Apollo, Paul Weitz hangs from the open hatch (assisted by Joe Kerwin) to try to deploy the stuck solar wing needed to supply the station with electrical power. This attempt was unsuccessful, but the astronauts later succeeded in freeing the wing during a space walk.
