“Many years ago the great British explorer George Mallory, who was to die on Mount Everest, was asked why did he want to climb it. He said, “Because it is there.”

Well, space is there, and we’re going to climb it, and the moon and the planets are there, and new hopes for knowledge and peace are there. And, therefore, as we set sail we ask God’s blessing on the most hazardous and dangerous and greatest adventure on which man has ever embarked.”

~ John F. Kennedy, September 12, 1962

50 years ago, humanity left our humble rock to step foot on another one. The size, scope and magnitude of such an endeavor has always been astounding to me, and I wanted to spend some time this past month creating a painting dedicated to that journey.  This three-panel painting is of the Saturn V launch on July 16, 1969. Each panel is 20 x 16 and comes with it’s own individual frame.

Finished a fairytale styled Forest a few days ago... Looking at it now, I kinda wish I had added a cottage or something on the right. Maybe I'll paint another version in a bit!
