Junkyard Blues

Using Pro-Create, I painted Junkyard Blues over the Fourth of July Weekend. This piece was inspired by a single line from Star Wars: A New Hope.  Early on in the film, Luke, Obi-Wan, C-3PO and R2-D2 first walk into the Mos Eisley Cantina. The bar tender immediately points at the droids and exclaims "We Don't Serve Their Kind Here".

This led me to wonder Where do all the Droids go when their partners are drinking in the Cantina? Besides R2 and C3PO, we do not see any droids waiting outside. Maybe the droids made a bar of their own in a quiet little corner of a messy junkyard filled with bits of planes and unwanted scraps of metal.

This thought inspired this melancholy scene picturing a lonely droid drinking at a spot only known to those who are not welcome anywhere else.
