Apollo astronaut Alan Bean spent years painting subjects from the Apollo program. If you get a chance, look on the net for his paintings. He textured the paintings using tools he used on the moon, or boot prints, or even mixed bits of foil and heat shields into the pictures. Some even have moon dust mixed with paint. The subjects show a wide range of thoughts and emotions. He was a truly talented artist. Now that he is passed on (another Apollo hero gone), many paintings are for sale. They run 5 to 6 figures each. Lithographs can be had for much less. But even just looking at them online is enjoyable and gives a little glimpse into his world!

I hate to think only a few of these space pioneers are left.
