9″x12″ acrylic, 2011. At long last, a Lego portrait! This “Lego guy” (that’s the official name for them, right?) is the Star Wars character Boba Fett, Darth Vader’s hired bounty hunter. The toy belongs to 10-year-old Oscar, who shares his affection for all things Lego and Star Wars with his mother Katya. Oscar loves to build Star Wars Lego kits, but he also likes to break them down and make his own creations. Katya will give this painting to Oscar for Christmas. My husband, who has filled a room upstairs in our house with his own Star Wars Lego structures, lobbied passionately for me to paint the Slave 1 spaceship into the background, but was unwilling to cough up the additional fee.
