Star Wars Evening Post (second series for Stitch Wars Strikes Back)

I just packed these up and sent them off to Florida for the Stitch Wars Strikes Back show. They're all based on Norman Rockwell paintings and I was very happy with how they turned out. I really enjoy doing pieces that combine themes. I only intended to do one piece like this but I couldn't decide which idea I liked best. I actually have one more piece that didn't make the show deadline (yes, it's in the dreaded long term work in progress pile) but I'll finish it up and post a picture soon. Check out the Bear and Bird website when the show opens (August 12, 2011) if you're interested in purchasing one. (I also may be opening an online shop soon; more on that later)
