The next Alan Bean release is going to be "Home Sweet Home" (Giclee canvas hand-signed by astronaut/artist Alan Bean; image size: 16x30 limited to 100 s/n).

Alan Bean says of "Home Sweet Home":

When Pete Conrad and I came down the ladder for our first walk on the Moon, all we had with us were the clothes (and backpacks) on our backs. Most of our scientific equipment was stowed in fold-down compartments on the sides of the lunar module descent stage.

Pete is working at the right front fold-down compartment, the Modularized Equipment Stowage Assembly, offloading things we will need. We've already set up the large S-band antenna to improve voice and television communications with Earth.

This painting emphasizes the size of the lunar module. As I looked at it on the Moon, it seemed much bigger than I remembered just four days previously back on the launch pad of Kennedy Space Center. It was a friendly home in a faraway world.

"Home Sweet Home" will be the November/December 2010 release. It was scheduled for September, but Alan Bean wants to do some additional painting to the original.

Instead of rushing the process, The Greenwich Workshop has decided to give Alan time to do his "thing" without a pressing deadline.

Apparently, the next release will be "A New Frontier" a color, artistic view of his well-known B&W photo.

Kim, any insight regarding what releases will be offered in print format? I find these a bit more in my budget range.

Here's the Alan Bean release schedule for the rest of 2010:

September Release - A New Frontier. This is a great self-portrait of Alan Bean on the Ocean of Storms. [ArtUSA.com]

December Release - "Home Sweet Home" (as pictured above). This features Pete Conrad "unpacking" on the moon. It's also a great piece. [ArtUSA.com]
