Artist Comments

The view of the full moon and Earth in this painting is from the International Space Station (ISS). I composed it using a NASA photo as a reference. It was taken by an astronaut looking out the ISS’s window toward the moon.

The painting and photo I used make it appear as if the Moon is in close orbit, hovering directly over the Earth, but this is not the case. The Moon is approximately 238,855 miles away, and the ISS is approximately 250 miles above the Earth.

Artist Comments

The east Texas moon is the inspiration behind Full Moon Rising. My favorite time to take a walk is in the late evening before turning in for the night. On a cloudless or nearly cloudless night, I love looking up into the night sky and seeing the stars and moon. I especially love it when the moon shines so brightly that it lights up the night and makes it appear almost like day! This is just one of the many “bennies” of country living.

The Far Side of the Moon

FYI…Did you know the common belief the moon has a dark side is a myth? The truth is both sides of the Moon see the same amount of sunlight.

The Moon makes a full rotation on its axis approximately once every 27 days. This is also approximately the same amount of time it takes the Moon to orbit the Earth, which means the same side is always facing the Earth. Astronomers refer to this as “synchronous rotation.”

Only about 59% of the moon is ever visible to Earth over the course of an orbit. The rest of the 41% — the part we call “dark” — is never visible from Earth. The “far side” of the Moon has only been seen by the human eye from a spacecraft.

About this First Lunar Walk Painting

Title: First Man on The Moon

Support: Gallery wrap stretched canvas
Description: A lunar landscape painting depicting the first man on the moon. This painting is a tribute to Astronaut Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the surface of the moon.

Artist Comments

The First Man on the Moon painting is a tribute to American Astronaut Neil Armstrong.

On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were the first men to land a spacecraft on the moon. However, it was Armstrong who took that first step onto its surface. A third crew member, Michael Collins, was alone orbiting Earth’s Moon in the Command Module Columbia awaiting their return.

Neil Armstrong was the commander of the Apollo 11 lunar mission. In this historic mission, Armstrong became a global hero the instant he made that “one giant leap for mankind” with a small step onto the moon’s surface. The crew of Columbia took a TV camera with them so the world could watch as they spent about 2 hours on the lunar surface collecting soil samples and conducting a few experiments. While they were there, Armstrong and Aldrin took photographs, unveiled a plaque to commemorate their flight, and planted the United States flag.

I was a young girl the day Armstrong walked on the moon, and I don’t remember much about it except for watching the footage on TV. From that day forward, he was one of my heroes and an inspiration to me.

Neil Armstrong passed away on August 25, 2012, at the age of 82. This painting was completed just a few months before his death.

About The U.S. Flag “Waving On The Moon”

An admirer of this painting asked about the flag. He wanted to know why it appears to be waving since  “… the flag would be straight and flat in space because there isn’t any wind. ”

I replied, “Yes, you are correct, and I had considered that when I was composing this painting.” I did some research on the matter before I started my work. This is what I discovered:

    • The NASA photo I used as a reference photo has ripples in the flag.
    • The flag pole itself has a crossbar at the top, which prevents the flag from drooping down.
    • Armstrong used a twisting motion to plant the flag pole into the ground causing the flag to wave back and forth. And since there is low gravity on the moon, what is set in motion tends to stay in motion for a very long time. When the photo was snapped, this created the impression the flag was blowing in the wind.
