Thomas “Painter of Light” Kinkade paintings are known for their glowing highlights and pastel colors, but artist Jeff Bennett wanted to add a geeky twist to some of his favorites in the form of Star Wars. You’ll see plenty of Stormtroopers setting Kinkade’s idyllic scenes ablaze and even Star Destroyers appearing in the fluffy clouds. Read more for additional pictures and information.
His works often focus on gardens, streams, stone cottages, lighthouses and Main Streets, partially due to his hometown being Placerville (where his works are omnipresent). This has been the inspiration for many of his street and snow scenes. Most do not have people in then, but one painting from 2009 of the Indianapolis Speedway featured Norman Rockwell and Dale Earnhardt hidden in the crowd scene.
