“I guess every astronaut wanted to be the first man on the Moon. I know I did,” says Alan Bean. “And if we couldn't be the first, we at least wanted to be one of the first. Apollo 11’s crew got the opportunity to make the first attempt. Neil, Buzz and Mike flew a perfect flight and went into the history books; but all 400,000 Americans that helped make Apollo a success are in that history, too."
“I think this painting is exactly how Astronaut Neil Armstrong looked as he took the now-iconic photo of his lunar companion, Buzz Aldrin,” says the artist. “You can see Buzz reflected in his gold visor if you look closely enough. I painted a companion piece to this painting at the same time as this, "First Men: Edwin E. “Buzz” Aldrin." In that painting, you see Neil Armstrong reflected in Buzz’s visor. They are a wonderful set and unique record of that exciting time in history.”
