Jedi News posted a really nice interview with Star Wars artist Brian Rood covering his painting for Star Wars Celebration Europe II.

What was the inspiration behind your Celebration Europe piece?

Brian Rood: I have wanted to do this painting for some time…I like the idea of seeing Boba Fett returning to his childhood home in his adult life. We don’t necessarily know what he is doing here. The viewer is not sure if Boba is coming or going…Is he having a moment of doubt or a moment of personal reflection. I love having artwork that can have dozens of possible stories behind one piece. The idea of portraying the actor Temuera Morrison as Boba is something that I have wanted to do since I first saw Episode II. I saw one of Art Andrews photographs of a crouching Boba Fett and that was the initial spark behind the characters pose and setting of this painting. The initial design was just Fett and his ship. It was fun but putting him in the rain in front of his childhood home, really added a new dimension to the story I was trying to portray.
