Doh! I guess that's why I ran out of fuel and crashed - I started the burn one orbit early.

This is a quick in-between artwork I made for the 54th birthday of Dutch astronaut André Kuipers. When he was young he was inspired by the science fiction stories of the 1960s like Perry Rhodan. So I thought it would be a nice idea to put André on the cover of a Perry Rhodan magazine. The portrait was made with crayons, the letters are from a computer.

Superb Ed! What was André's reaction when he saw this?

Very nice work Ed.

I don't know how you get get them done so quickly. It takes me weeks and weeks to get a painting finished.

What's next Ed? Ever thought of making an exoplanet painting like the works of Lynette Cook?

Certainly a topic which ensures presentation in several publications these days...

That is not a bad idea, Philip. I like her work and I feel I can paint such scenes with relative ease. Lately I have been experimenting with 'starry' space backgrounds, inspired by Robert McCall's work. Who knows where that might lead.

But first order of business is a 'first step' Apollo painting.

The contrast of the brightly lit machines and the black void is terrific in Lunar Orbit. Well done Ed.

Thanks Gary.

And I just took the first steps for a 'first step' painting. Coming along nicely.

I like your 'Dawn' painting very much. It reminds me of the 'twilight tour' I took with press photographers the night before the launch of STS-26/Discovery in 1988.

The shuttle never looked so 'alive', and not a machine, as when we drove between the launch pad and the ocean and you could see the vapors coming off the shuttle stack with the sound of the ocean waves in the background.

Your work is fantastic, Ed. Echt ontzettend knap. Time for a new book.

Indeed, superb work... as always Ed's best painting... the next one!

A new "EH" book would be a great idea.

"Dawn" is one of my favorites. I can remember on a couple of the launches I've attended seeing scenes very close to that with the vehicle sitting on Pad 39A (it looks like A, given the RSS is blocking the view of the orbiter as seen from the press site white 39B would have it exposed) and the colors of the ET and SRBs still look nice and vibrant as the vehicle is still being illuminated by the xenon spotlights. It gives the vehicle an almost surreal quality. As the space coast is waking up, it looks serene while a lot of activity is set to begin in a few hours.

The real subtle bit is one can tell it is dawn by how the cloud is dark while the sky behind it is starting to pink up. Nice job.

The Perry Rhodan cover also is pretty cool. Andre is smiling though while Perry always tended to look so serious in his paintings.

'Moonboot'... Ed, you have entered the realm of great Dutch painters: you are painting with light. What an outstanding piece of work!

My post above was not meant to imply that I don't value comments about my artwork from others. I appreciate all your remarks very much, but it is extra special when they are made by somebody who is a skillful artist himself. Luc has made some great paintings and I believe one was even published in Aviation Week in the 1980s.

Your 'Moonboot' painting, Ed, would be most appropriate for a stamp honoring the late Neil Armstrong

Excellent idea. Unfortunately I don't know any 'stamp people' who can make that happen...

Here are some oldies I found while gathering artwork for a possible second book. From 1990 and 1991, respectively.

Excellent layout and graphics! Nice to know I inspired you to make a stamp out of one of your canvases. Now everyone can carry around a reproduction without the wall space!

Just curious if we can get 50 cS members interested for an Ed Hengeveld Space Art book? I believe this time Ed plans an elaborate work if there's enough interest...
