Thats How It Felt To Walk On The Moon - Astronauts by Alan Bean

"'That's How it Felt to Walk on the Moon' is my answer to the question I've been asked most often since November 19, 1969. I felt a long, long way from the people and places I love the most. It seems unreal . . . impossible. From time to time, I would look down and say to myself, 'this is the moon.' And then, I would look up at a small, beautiful, bright blue and white sphere hanging in the mysterious, luminous black sky and think, 'that is the earth.'

"Words have never expressed what I experienced, but I think that in this work I have captured some of the excitement and exhilaration I felt. I wanted an eye-arresting image, something to communicate the excitement of being on the moon, so I began experimenting with 'exciting' colors - bright primary tones. But that didn't feel right. Then, as I worked, I began to see a rainbow effect in the layers of paint. That feeling, of all colors being mixed but also harmonizing, finally allowed me to tell how it felt to walk on the moon."
