As the sun sets

We recently obtained an autographed copy of Edwin ‘Buzz’ Aldrin’s new book ‘Magnificent Desolation’ about his post moon-landing life and his subsequent adjustment struggles as a normal human being back on earth (an adjustment that involved a couple of women, alcoholism and depression). Reading this book bought to mind how another moon walker adjusted to life back on earthAlan Bean, (the fourth human to walk on the moon). He turned to painting... One of his paintings below.

Alan Bean, "Beyond a Young Boy's Dream", 1989, acrylic on Masonite board. More here.
