Description


Striking original painting of Tom Stafford's Apollo space suit on a hanger, accomplished in oil on a 22 x 18 board by NASA suit technician-turned-artist Ron Woods. The detailed artwork shows the upper portion of the suit while in storage, featuring the "Stafford" name patch at the center of the chest and the American flag on the left shoulder, as well as its inventory tag tied to the front. Signed along the bottom in white paint, "R. Woods 08." Handsomely framed without glass to an overall size of 30 x 25.75. In fine condition.

During the Apollo program, Ron Woods worked for ILC as a suit technician performing suit maintenance, interface testing with the Command Module, Lunar Module, and Lunar Rover vehicles, and insertion of astronauts in Command and Lunar modules for training. He suited crewmembers for Apollo 8, 11, 15, all Skylab missions, and Apollo-Soyuz. He also supported the first two Space Shuttle missions as a suit technician at KSC and three additional missions at primary and back-up landing sites.
