Artist Comments

I’m a huge supporter of the United States Space Program, both the military and civilian branches, and this painting is a tribute to them. I love traveling to new places, and for me, outer space would be the ultimate adventure in this physical universe.

About the U.S. Space Shuttle

The Space Shuttle is a retired spacecraft system operated by NASA from 1981 to 2011 as part of the United States Space Shuttle program. It was intended to be a partially reusable spacecraft that would be launched like a rocket and landed on a runway like a glider. The space shuttle launched astronauts and cargo into space and returned them safely.

Six space shuttles have been built for the United States Space Program since its inception. The first space shuttle, Enterprise, was a prototype that was carried on its maiden voyage by a Boeing 747, but it never made it into space. Challenger, Columbia, Discovery, Atlantis, and Endeavour were the other five space shuttles. All five went on space missions.

About this Moon and Earth Painting

painting with a view of moon and earth
Frame not included.

Title: A View of the Full Moon and Earth
Size:
6″ w x 6″ h
Support: Gallery Wrap Stretched Canvas
Description: A painting depicting the view of the full moon and Earth as seen from the International Space Station (ISS). The moon is seen in a very close orbit above the Earth which makes up the foreground. The vastness of space and a myriad of stars are in the background. The painting is signed by fine artist Teresa Bernard.

This is a small painting measuring 6×6 inches. Its compact size makes it perfect for small or limited spaces. It is hand-painted on gallery wrap stretched canvas and won’t need a frame because the painting’s image extends around the edges of the canvas support giving it a contemporary look. Whether you choose to have it framed or leave it unframed, it will look great in your home or office, or any place it is displayed.

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.
