Wally
10"  x  8"   Colour Photographic Reproduction
  £11.95 
The Original Piece Was Completed in 1991 -   Pencil on Paper

I painted the two portraits of Wally Schirra and Walter Cunningham because an official NASA portrait of them in their white Apollo spacesuits does not exist. So I decided to make them myself.

In The Beginning
10"  x  15"   Colour Photographic Reproduction
   £15.95
The Original Piece Was Completed in 1996  -  10 x 15 Watercolour on Paper
The earth appears from behind the moon, a view seen by only a hand-full of men between 1968 and 1972.  A simple but very symbolic painting.

The Original Piece Was Completed in 2000  -  10 x 12  Watercolour on Paper
An Apollo crew walks out from the Manned Spacecraft Operations Building at the Kennedy Space Centre to begin their journey to the launch pad. This was always a special moment to me, as this was the last time the public could see the astronauts close up before they were launched.

   £18.95

Apollo 11
10"  x  14"   Colour Photographic Reproduction
   £11.95
The Original Piece Was Completed in 1993  -  Pencil on Paper
This is the third page from a comic strip I wanted to make in the 1990s. I made 9 pages over a period of three years and then I abandoned the project. The original of this page hung in a comic strip museum in The Netherlands for over a year.

First Men
12"  x  12"   Colour Photographic Reproduction
   £17.95
The Original Piece Was Completed in 2005  -  12 x 12 Watercolour on Paper
The painting shows Apollo-11 commander Neil Armstrong very close up. Buzz Aldrin is reflected in Armstrong’s helmet visor as he climbs down Eagle’s ladder to join Armstrong on the lunar surface. For reference I used a close up photo from Apollo-12, but I noted that the helmet visor was different from Apollo-11, so that had to be adjusted. The reflected Aldrin scene is a mirror-image of Armstrong’s famous photo. I was inspired by Armstrong’s biography “First Man”, which was about to be published as the idea for the painting hit me. So much so that I adapted the title for my painting.

Tranquillity Base
12"  x  16"   Colour Photographic Reproduction
   £18.95
The Original Piece Was Completed in 2004  -  12 x 16  Watercolour on Paper
Armstrong and Aldrin during planting of the flag at Tranquillity Base in July 1969. The owner of this painting wanted an "in your face" painting: very close up as if you were standing on the moon together with the astronauts.

Two Flags
12"  x  16"   Colour Photographic Reproduction
   £18.95
The Original Piece Was Completed in 2004  -  12 x 16  Watercolour on Paper
The person who commissioned me for this painting wanted me to paint the US flag on the moon and sent me several examples of others who had already done this. But I wanted to do something different and suggested the idea of painting the flag on an astronaut's shoulder. Then I thought it would be even better to combine the two, and this is the result.

   £18.95
The Original Piece Was Completed in 1995 -  12 x 16 Pencil & Watercolour on Paper
Several photos from different Apollo missions served as inspiration for this painting, depicting the first steps on the lunar surface.

Pete
10"  x  14"   Colour Photographic Reproduction
   £15.95
The Original Piece Was Completed in 2005  -  Watercolour on Paper
Pete Conrad was a colourful guy and one of my favourite astronauts. I just felt like painting a portrait of him.

Ocean Of Storms
20"  x  16"   Colour Photographic Reproduction
   £22.95
The Original Piece Was Completed in 1995  -  20 x 16 Watercolour & Pencil on Paper
This painting of the Apollo-12 astronauts Pete Conrad and Al Bean working in the Ocean of Storms was made before I realized that the flag they planted had a broken horizontal support, so it hung limp instead of giving the impression it was waving in the breeze, as I painted it.

Earthrise

12"  x  18"   Colour Photographic Reproduction

£19.95

The Original Piece Was Completed in 2006  12 x 18 Watercolour on Paper

I have painted this theme several times already, but I never get tired of it. What a sight this must have been.

Gnomon
10"  x  8"   Colour Photographic Reproduction
   £11.95
The Original Piece Was Completed in 2006 -  10 x 8  Watercolour on Paper
This was an experiment. I wanted to make a more “impressionistic” painting, instead of the rather detailed works I usually make. The result is still a bit too detailed, but overall I was very pleased with the way it turned out. The astronaut is holding the gnomon in his hand, a device to provide scale in the lunar surface photos.

Sampling
10"  x  8"   Colour Photographic Reproduction
 £11.95
The Original Piece Was Completed in 2006 -  10 x 8  Watercolour on Paper
Another “impressionistic” experiment. An attempt to capture the feeling of the moment instead of trying to make it look like a photograph.

   £18.95

Rolling Rock
12"  x  16"   Colour Photographic Reproduction
   £18.95
The Original Piece Was Completed in 2004  -  12 x 16  Watercolour on Paper
The person who asked me to paint this scene had heard from Apollo-14 astronaut Ed Mitchell that he had wanted to kick a rock into Cone Crater when he reached the top. Unfortunately Mitchell and his commander Alan Shepard didn't make it to the top, so this never happened. The painting was later signed by Mitchell.

   £18.95
The Original Piece Was Completed in 2004  -  16 x 12 Watercolour on Paper
This painting was commissioned by a collector, who wanted me to depict the moment when Apollo-14 commander Alan Shepard decided that he and Ed Mitchell were not going to make it to the rim of Cone Crater. Shepard is turning around, while Mitchell wants to continue.

Noah's Ark

12"  x  18"   Colour Photographic Reproduction

£15.95

The Original Piece Was Completed in 2005 10 x 15 Watercolour on Paper

After returning from the Moon in 1971, Apollo-15 astronaut Jim Irwin spent the final years of his life searching for the remains of Noah’s Ark. He died -without having found it - in 1991, exactly 20 years after the Apollo-15 mission. A collector asked me to paint a scene as if Irwin had found the Ark on the Moon and I agreed that it would be a nice symbolic image. But painting this scene wasn’t easy. Apart from problems in deciding the right perspective, I didn’t have a clue how the Ark should look, or how big it should be in relation to Irwin. But after some research I think I managed to paint a reasonably convincing Ark.

Hadley Rille
20"  x  8"   Colour Photographic Reproduction
   £17.95
The Original Piece Was Completed in 1997 -   Watercolour on Paper
The panoramic view at the edge of the Hadley Rille in the Apollo-15 landing area on the moon must have been spectacular. Astronauts Scott and Irwin are working near the lunar rover, the first car on the moon.

Moment of Reflection
12"  x  16"   Colour Photographic Reproduction
£18.95
The Original Piece Was Completed in 2005  -  16 x 12 Watercolour on Paper
In August 1971, at the end of the third Apollo-15 EVA, commander Dave Scott parked the lunar rover in its final parking place, before he and Jim Irwin entered the lunar module for the return to Earth. One of Scott’s last, symbolic actions on the Moon was to place a small red Bible on the lunar rover, leaning against the control panel. He didn’t mention it in his communications with Mission Control and it was only many years later that I read about this for the first time. When a collector asked me to paint this scene I tried to find a photo of it, but all I could find was a photo of the lunar rover where the Bible is barely visible. Using my imagination I painted this rendition, hoping that this is how it would have looked to an observer at the scene.

House Rock
30"  x  16"   Colour Photographic Reproduction
£29.95
The Original Piece Was Completed in 2006  -  Watercolour on Cardboard
This is the largest painting I ever made (and the most expensive one). The collector who commissioned me wanted a painting of Apollo-16 astronauts Young and Duke examining the large rock they found during EVA-2, called 'House Rock'. There are no good photos of that rock and I had to use the television tapes to see what it looked like. I wanted to show the huge size of the rock, which dwarfed the astronauts working beside it. I worked on this painting during the long, hot summer of 2006.

Exploring #1

20"  x  8"   Colour Photographic Reproduction

£17.95

The Original Piece Was Completed in 2006  20 x  8 Watercolour on Cardboard

This painting was made because I wanted to experiment with different size and different materials. I like the bright look of the painting, as if to illustrate it was a beautiful day on the moon. On the one hand the astronaut (inspired by John Young) looks very lonely, on the other hand the earth is watching over his shoulder.

Sampling Shorty
20"  x  8"   Colour Photographic Reproduction
   £17.95
The Original Piece Was Completed In 1996  -  Watercolour on Paper
This photo of Shorty Crater was in National Geographic magazine in 1973 and it was the first photo I saw that made me realize the size of some of the craters the Apollo astronauts visited. I later painted it with Apollo-17 astronauts Cernan and Schmitt working at the edge.

Home Planet

20"  x  8"   Colour Photographic Reproduction

£17.95

The Original Piece Was Completed in 2006  20 x  8 Watercolour on Cardboard

After the first experiment with this size and orientation (a vertical pan), I wanted to do it again. This painting is very similar to 'Exploring', but yet it is also different. The astronaut is Apollo 17 commander Gene Cernan. This is the only painting I have hanging in my own living room (as a reproduction, because the original has been sold !) I like it very much.
