Lucy West is an amazing space artist. In this short clip, filmed for our Apollo Reflections project, Lucy discusses her art and its influences, from first looking through a telescope at Halley’s Comet, to watching the shuttle launch from her Florida home, to the influence of  Apollo 12 Moonwalker and artist, Alan Bean.

 

Here’s a work commissioned by Apollospace owner, Jeremy Theoret, for his partner, Silvia, of their favorite spot near their home on the Rio Grande River in Albuquerque, NM, called “Home.” Measuring 36×24, the painting depicts a romantic winter scene overlooking the river looking toward the Sandia Mountains with the majestic Milky Way Galaxy rising, as winter birds, including Sandhill Cranes, Canada Geese, and multiple species of ducks fly home for the evening.
