In Feelin’ Fine, Alan Bean is confident, he’s cool, and he’s Feelin’ Fine. (Limited Edition Canvas)
Alan Bean’s impressionistic painting of an astronaut on the moon (there were only 12 who actually stood on its surface!) captures the exhilaration that Bean and his colleagues felt but never had time to “stop and assume the position,” as Bean explains.
In all, during Alan Bean’s career as an astronaut, he logged in 1,671 hours and 45 minutes in space; on his 59-day flight as part of Skylab Mission, he set a world record of 24,400,000 miles traveled in space. Through the years, Bean’s visual documentation of his lunar and space experience has evolved in style and media, and in many of his original works, he incorporates multi-media elements such as footprint impressions from the astronaut’s boots, and texture made from lunar tools, bits of the Apollo XII spacecraft, and sprinkles of moondust. These elements are evident in the fine art editions made of Bean’s work.
“It takes a certain attitude of cockiness to be an astronaut,” he adds, “and it’s hard to show those emotions when I am behind gold visors.” Add Feelin’ Fine to your Alan Bean collection today!
