My best selling print





 A Hobbits Tale (The Red Book) Oil on canvas.

Bilbo travels to Rivendell to continue work on the red book (tucked under his arm); his two Dwarven companions (Dwarves of the Iron Hills) bid him farewell refusing to go ...
further into Elven territory. Gandalf can be seen on the distant path eager to discover more about the true tale of the One Ring.

The painting is set between the Hobbit and the Lord of The Rings; Gandalf is still unsure as to the powers of the ring that Bilbo won/stole from Gollum.

Traveling song by Bilbo Baggins:-

Roads go ever ever on,
Over rock and under tree,
By caves where never sun has shone,
By streams that never find the sea;
Over snow by winter sown,
And through the merry flowers of June,
Over grass and over stone,
And under mountains in the moon.
Roads go ever ever on
Under cloud and under star,
Yet feet that wandering have gone
Turn at last to home afar.
Eyes that fire and sword have seen
And horror in the halls of stone
Look at last on meadows green
And trees and hills they long have known.

J.R.R. Tolkien
