Along the Tamiami Trail
Not space art, that's for sure, but there's a catch: the original watercolor for this print was painted by Michael Collins, pilot for Apollo 11, the first moon landing mission with crewmates Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin. Collins orbited the moon in the CM "ride home" while Neil and Buzz went to the surface.
Here is a tranquil scene of the Florida Everglades, not too far from Collins' home, as seen from the Tamiami Trail highway between Tampa and Miami. Signed on the lower right. His autograph is a rarity, and would cost $450 alone.
Collins is happily retired after a stellar career as test pilot, astronaut, diplomat, author and first director of the National Air & Space Museum. He now fishes, paints and explores the wilderness around his South Florida home. This is one of those sublimely serene scenes he's witnessed.
