I believe that they are REAL envelopes and stamps. Ed is apparently sketching on actual space covers.

Bill is correct, these are actual space covers and the stamp and mission emblem were already on them. I use 'gouache' (don't know if there is an English name for that type of paint).

Ed, Beautiful!

Actually, a lot more beautiful than the famous photo of Al on the surface itself. I really like the way the bleed off into white space on the edges makes the images look like dream landscapes -- and in many ways, it was. I didn't think it possible to like these even more, but each time, you surprise me more and more. Great job!

Ed, these are really great. You should consider doing this commercially for space philatelists.

Ed, the LM looks 3-dimensional. How do you get that effect? It's great.

Rich asked me to post the final cover, completing the Apollo-14 series. The flight is now represented from start to finish.

Wow. As an artist myself (albeit more a model builder as I haven't touched a 2D drawing in about a decade) I am very impressed with the level of details in these! Shepherd on the surface with the shadow from the LM crossing his leg is my favorite thus far. Great use of color in all of them.

Thanks Jay. Actually the detail is limited because of the small size. Even my smallest brush was too large for some of the details. You should see my larger paintings

Well, it has been raining for the past week, so what can you do? I have been painting a 'timeline' series commissioned by Larry McGlynn. The series will depict the major steps in an Apollo mission from launch through splashdown:
  1. Launch *
  2. S-IC Staging
  3. S-II Staging
  4. TLI
  5. LM removal from S-IVB
  6. TLC *
  7. LOI
  8. LM Separation
  9. LM Descent
  10. LM Landing *
  11. LM Liftoff
  12. Rendezvous *
  13. TEI
  14. CM-SM Separation
  15. Reentry *
  16. Splashdown *
The * indicates paintings that are completed.

A few weeks ago I was commissioned to paint a portrait of Dee O'Hara (who needs no further introduction), as a gift for her birthday. It was suggested to me to post a picture here, so that more people could see it. As this is one more opportunity for me to show off, I gladly post a scan here.

Ed, that was an extremely well done job.

I would also like to mention that this was done as a birthday gift from one very nice collector by the name of Leslie Cantwell. It was truly a wonderful gift and a great gesture.

Ed and Leslie, thank you for showing such talent and class.

Wish I had some of both.

Here's a trivia question - does anyone recognize the photo Ed has used to assist him in capturing the modern-day Dee? I recognized it straight away - in fact, it appears on a Publications thread on collectSPACE...
