Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin with Flag.

A historic moment as Neil Armstrong & Buzz Aldrin plant the American flag during the Apollo 11 mission. This was a challenging painting to do as I wanted it to be as authentic as possible, such as the creases on the stars and stripes and so on. Personally, the important part of the painting is to show the astronaut’s faces behind their gold visor, which I’ve captured. This is to show the humans whom descended from all the billions of generations of life since LUCA (Last Universal Common Ancestor), and these two men are the end results of the 3 billion plus years of struggle of survival, and here they are on the moon.
