I've sent it to collectSPACE and asked that it be posted here after the unveiling. I wanted to make sure the winning bidder gets first look.

Be aware though my spaceships appear more "impressionistic" than yours. Yours are in the same league as McCall, Mion and Rockwell. At least mine look more realistic than what Picasso would paint.

Thanks, Tim.

By the way, I am available for commissions if anyone is interested. I have only done two paintings so far this year, so I need to get up to last year's 'standard' of 15. Any help would be appreciated.

For some time I had been planning to make a painting showing the three Apollo 13 astronauts together in the LM. The idea came from a painting I saw by Phil Smith, but I thought his work wasn't very accurate. So here is what I have done so far. Could be worse, I guess...

This new painting certainly proves my point:

Question: Ed's best painting?
Answer: the next one!

(Practice makes perfect.)

Here is another painting for 'The Larry McGlynn Apollo Mission Timeline Series'. This one shows transearth injection. I know the SPS plume does not look as it would actually appear to an observer, but this was an attempt to re-create the look of the 1960s NASA/Rockwell series of timeline paintings.

No worries on the rocket plume Ed. You DO have a artisitic license don't you?

How's the Apollo 13 painting coming along?

Lovell is finished, the other two will have to wait until I paint my next commission (which has a tight deadline).

Wow, Ed! Your new painting is awesome!! Larry McGlynn is a very lucky guy to get this one. How you handled the earth, hanging in the blackness of space, is really cool... gave me duckbumps. Keep up the great work!

Ed I take my hat off to you - these are really good, especially the likenesses of Lovell, Swigert and Haise. I enjoy painting and so if you're ever in the UK and wish to do a workshop...

Yet another painting for 'The Larry McGlynn Apollo Mission Timeline', being the halfway mark in the series. This one shows staging as seen from the inside of the spent S-II stage.

I have done two other commissions in the past two weeks, but I can't show the paintings yet. I'll post them later...

I really love that Apollo 13 painting, it looks like its coming along very nice. I can't wait to see it when finished.

Have you ever considering doing a painting of Pete Conrad during the Apollo 12 moonwalks wearing his giant baseball cap? I know he really wanted to wear it but was unable to sneak it on board. I think that would be a really cool image.

Great paintings and as I always said; Ed's best painting will be his next one...
But it looks he didn't do many on Apollo 11 ?

Yes, Ed, it certainly got to me!!

I wish everyone could see Ed's "Columbia: We Dare to Dream" in person. It's stunning, unbelievably dynamic, absolutely AWESOME. If you think it looks good on a computer screen, you'd be BLOWN AWAY to see it "live"--it looks incredible and more three-dimensional, and even more brilliant than you could ever imagine. It's a MAGNIFICENT tribute to Columbia... and I'm still in shock to actually own it!

Hats off to you Ed!! This one's the very best.

I totally endorse this statement.

Are you listening, Ed. A volume of all your paintings to date. The hard work is done. The not quite so hard work is to bring all these together. It would be a winner, Ed.

I like Wendell Minor's artwork. He has a style that is close to my own. Maybe I can publish a similar book together with Neil Armstrong or Mike Collins...

Another 'timeline' series painting, showing translunar injection. This is sort of the mirror-image of the earlier transearth injection painting.

This is a painting I made this summer at the request of Mike Durst, Director of the Robert and Elisabeth Moore Observatory at Columbia Basin College in the State of Washington. On September 11 it was presented to Charlie Duke during his visit to the observatory. Mike tells me that Duke liked it very much. He is the fourth astronaut to own a Hengeveld painting.

Is the observer's point of view on top of the LM, or is it on top of a LM-less dummy load? Any specific mission?

The LM was on top of the S-IVB stage Francois, this is the stage you can see moving away in the painting.

Ed, just saw your Apollo 16 lunar scene that you posted today. You've really got to produce that coffee table sized book with your work. Your work is too terriffic to go without being compiled into a book. I'm 53, so you've got to get on this before I become too feeble to enjoy your paintings. My wife may say that I'm already too feeble, but that's another story.

One of these days I will have to seriously consider that. I think it would be fairly easy these days to do that myself. Now if only I wasn't so swamped in things-to-do...

Fans of Ed's paintings can still take a look at: The New Hengeveld Galleries. As you see, most paintings became available as large prints.

And now for something completely different:

'Jupiter and Ganymede'
watercolor on art board
30x40cm

This painting is for sale, by the way, but I wanted to keep all of them together in one thread.

At Philip's request I have added Pioneer 10 to the painting. I must say it takes some 'courage' to start messing with a finished painting, but I think it turned out OK. And I must admit that it looks better now...

About time Ed added an unmanned spacecraft to his (excellent) manned Apollo series of paintings.
