"Farmer in the Sky" - Robert Heinlein

By Danny Flynn

“Farmers in the Sky”

Book jacket painting for the novel by Robert A Heinlein.

The novel explored the idea that we will one day visit Jupiter, and at least one of it’s many moons; in this case icy Ganymede.

I was trying to give this painting an English summer feeling, even though it was an alien moon. A friend of mine is a farmer, so I “borrowed” some of his cows, and couldn’t resist adding a “painted lady” butterfly… similar in colour to distant Jupiter.

From a limited edition of only 50 prints, numbered and signed by artist Danny Flynn
