Anything painted directly, on the spot, always has a strength, a power, a lively touch that is lost in the studio. Your first impression is the right one. Stick to it and refuse to budge.
- Eugene Boudin
Nothing makes me so happy as to observe nature and to paint what I see.
- Henri Rousseau

My new post on Tor.com on concept art and the real U.S. space program in the 1950's

How Concept Art Helped Sell the U.S. Space Program, Tor.com

I’ve written new article for Tor.com titled “How Concept Art Helped Sell the U.S. Space Program“.

In it, I of course explain what I mean by the title, showcase some terrific space art by Chesley Bonestell, Fred Freeman and Rolf Klep, and link to a source for more.

You can see my previous articles for Tor.com here.

    Walt Disney threw his hat into the ring as well, check out the Walt Disney Treasures Tomorrowland: Disney in Space and Beyond DVD.

    I also just ordered the National geographic 123 year DVD collection, -top on the list is to check out all the past “Space” stuff articles…. I won’t be able to sit up in an attic like James Gurneys NG painting, but I’m going to look like the boy and grandfather all wrapped up into one…http://gurneyjourney.blogspot.com/2008/03/attic-scene-in-allentown.html

    Thanks so much for writing this article Charlie…. I’m going to be busy reviewing the Horizons Newsletters… Cheers, Mike
