Alan Shepard was the 5th human to walk on the Moon aboard Apollo 14 in February 1971. He was also the first to play some golf on the Moon when at the end of their last EVA, he attached a 6 iron head to one of the tools and hit two golf balls. This painting depicts the view of the Lunar Module ascent stage lifting off of the Moon as viewed from the location of the more distant of the two golf balls.
The painting was completed on June 9, 2017. It is a 16 by 20 inch acrylic on canvas.
