This is a Giclee print of my pastel painting, “In The Beginning...”.

Presented in a mount board, with a white border and title

to enhance the minimalist image, this print is ready for framing

with a surround to suit your decor.

“In The Beginning...” is the opening phrase of the Bible quotation from Genesis that was read out by the crew of Apollo 8 as they flew around the moon at Christmas time in 1968. This painting is based upon the famous photo 'Earth Rise' taken by the crew. The image served to spark our understanding of the fragility of Planet Earth and boosted the conservation movement. It is still relevant today. On a personal note, the Apollo 8 mission was also the one that kick started my brother's career as a manned space flight historian, so this painting is “In The Beginning...” in another sense. This painting is now only available as a print.

All my paintings and prints will be mounted, wrapped in cellophane and protected with cardboard to preserve them. I aim to dispatch your purchase within 2 days (excluding holidays), but as I only keep a limited stock of each print, this may take longer if I need to get another done for your order. I will inform you if this is the case.
