Moondust & Bits From Our Apollo Spacecraft
There is a bit of magic in all of my recent paintings, starting with a trace of actual moondust from the patches and insignias I wore on my Apollo spacesuit.
I also add particles of the heat shields from our Apollo 12 Command Module, charred during its fiery 25,000-miles-per-hour reentry into the Earth's atmosphere, plus bits of gold foil from the forward hatch of our Command Module.
A short list of available paintings with out-of-this-world materials can be found in Available Paintings.
