Thanks Forestgrass!

I specifically wanted some kind of 'stand-out' feature of the still life, besides the normal fruit-flower-bowl, etc. I got the idea of little helpers somehow setting up the still life for me, but making a mess of it. I saw these little stormtroopers a while ago and thought they looked goofy - big heads, little bodies, and thought they'd be the perfect addition to the painting.

There's so much that can be done with this theme, I may revisit it again in the next painting; maybe a stormtrooper dance party.

Thanks again for commenting!

Now you're talking! Trying to pose one of these guys in a knee bar would be a bit difficult though…
