Art is probably the largest and most satisfying part of my collection. It’s mostly art prints as original paintings are hard to come by. An original piece of art still available on Dave Seeley‘s website is this wonderful painting showing the Millennium Falcon fleeing the Death Star with three Tie Fighters in hot pursuit. Titled “Death Star Escape”, it is oil on canvas on board.
As with his other paintings, the attention to detail is superb. Even the Tie Fighters are sharp and crisp and I love that you can make out figures in the Falcon’s cockpit.
The Silver frame sets the painting off perfectly in my opinion.
At an image size of 30″ by 43.75″ (37″ by 50.75″ in it’s Larsen Juhl silver hardwood frame), it really is a very striking painting that is sure to impress.
Dave has signed the painting too. Always nice.
Dave has created quite a few images for Lucas books, including book covers, so it’s pretty exciting to be able to acquire a painting from a published artist as most originals end up in George Lucas’s private collection. He was going to sell this at this years San Diego Comic Con.
I think it’s a beautiful painting, but its a lot of money for me to pay out in one go. I’ve asked about the possibility of paying in instalments, which I am very pleased to say that he has agreed to. I’m pretty nervous, as I’ve never tried to spend this much money before. My last instalment is in September and I still need to ship it to the UK.
