Artist Comments: A moonset is when the moon is full and dips just below the western horizon near dawn. Ever since man first looked up at the stars, he has been fascinated by the big sphere that hangs in the night sky above us and this particular artist is no exception. My favorite time to take a walk is in the late evening just before turning in for the night. I absolutely love looking up into the night sky and seeing the stars and the moon on a cloudless or almost cloudless night.

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 rotates around on its own axis about once every 27 days. This is approximately the same amount of time it takes to orbit the Earth which means the same side is always facing the Earth. Astronomers call this phenomenon “synchronous rotation.” Only about 59% of the moon is ever visible to Earth over the course of an entire orbit. The rest of the 41% — the part many call “dark” — is the part we never ever get to see from Earth. The “far side” of the Moon has only been seen by the human eye from a spacecraft.

Artist Comments: This 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 the Moon in the Command Module Columbia awaiting their return.

Armstrong was commander for 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 surface of the moon. 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.

I was just a young girl the day Armstrong walked on the moon and I don’t remember a lot about it, but I do remember watching the footage on TV. During that time Armstrong and Aldrin also took photographs, unveiled a plaque to commemorate their flight, and planted the flag of the United States.

Armstrong died August 25, 2012 at 82 years of age. I finished this painting a few months before his death.

I received my painting! Thank you very much, it’s a beautiful work of art! — P. Cooper, Yokosuka, Japan


Artist Comments: This painting depicts the historic event of man’s first walk on the moon. It is one of two custom paintings commissioned by an art collector living in Japan. The other painting is “Land Rover Tracks of Mars.”

Man first stepped on the moon July 20, 1969. The iconic footprint depicts the infamous day when Neil Armstrong first put his left foot on the rocky Moon surface. The Apollo 11 crew had taken TV cameras with them and this meant people all over the world could watch when it happened. You can read more about this historic event at NASA’s web site:  Apollo 11 – First Footprint on the Moon.

First Footprint on the Moon is my first painting of the space art genre. Since I have never been to the moon nor seen the iconic footprint in person, it required some research on my part to come up with this composition. I used a NASA photo of the footprint and spent time studying their photos of the moon’s surface to get an idea of what it would be like there. For the background I used photos of strange “alien looking” landscapes found right here on earth to complete the composition. Then, I added the distant view of earth in the night sky to add the finishing touch. My client absolutely loved his painting when it was done. I love it too. In fact, he was so happy with it that he commissioned me to do another one for him. This time the setting would be Mars.
