I'm rather pleased with the way this one turned out. After watching a fascinating Apollo 12 program on YouTube which truly created the feeling of joining those brave astronauts on their surrealistic journey, I felt a strong urge to paint one. I wasn't pleased with the original idea of creating a simple portrait, I wanted to take the already surreal idea of space travel and add an off-beat element to the mix. The thought was, "Let's send a planet to space."
