R2-D2 on Canyon Road in Santa Fe

I was exploring Canyon Road in Santa Fe last week, checking out galleries and the famous street in general, when I noticed this somewhat beat-up residential home … there was a contractor’s sign out front, so it’s clear that the homeowner is in the process of fixing it up.

The white semioval shape to the right of the door by itself grabs the attention of the eye, but then I noticed something faint in it … and a closer look shows that it’s R2-D2, the droid from Star Wars (as if I need to tell anyone who R2-D2 is!). I’m guessing a street artist tagged the house with this stencil art when no one was looking, but it would seem that the homeowner doesn’t mind! I kind of like it myself, it’s very subtle.
