Apollo astronaut and artist, Alan Bean, fourth man to walk on the moon, had a full career at NASA. When he retired in 1981 he knew that if any credible artistic impressions were to remain of the start of the space program for future generations, he needed to start painting them. “My decision to resign from NASA was based on the fact that I am fortunate enough to have seen sights no other artist ever has,” Bean said, “and I hope to communicate these experiences through art.”

"Home Sweet Home" refers to his sentiments toward the lunar module as he looked at it from the outside, while standing on the Moon. “When Pete Conrad and I came down the ladder for our first walk on the Moon, all we had with us were the clothes (and backpacks) on our backs,” says artist Alan Bean. “The lunar module seemed much bigger than I remembered from just four days earlier on the launch pad. Now it was a friendly home in a faraway world
