For the love of Star Wars

My better half enjoys Star Wars, to say the least. This time last year I had an idea for a painting. I took an image of a stormtrooper and morphed it into a simple pattern. It took about 3 hours or so to paint, with the detailing getting the better of my OCD.

I would really like to make a large scale wallpaper style pattern like this in needlepoint/cross stitch form, but it’ll have to wait until AC {after college}. For the moment it’s hanging in our hallway amongst a plethora of other treasured delights such as hand written letters from both my grandmothers, and pricey prints I got at an auction on a cruise holiday a couple years ago {free champagne – need I say more?}.

    Such a cute idea! My brother would really appreciate that pattern. His hands will be forever warped to hold a controller.
