‘Looking ahead they could see only tree trunks of innumerable sizes and shapes: straight or bent, twisted, leaning, squat or slender, smooth or gnarled and branched; and all the stems were green or grey with moss and slimy, shaggy growths. […]
They picked a way among the trees, and their ponies plodded along, carefully avoiding the many writhing and twisting roots. There was no undergrowth. The ground was rising steadily, and as they went forward it seemed that the trees became taller, darker, and thicker. There was no sound, except an occasional drip of moisture falling through the still leaves.’

Tolkien watercolors. New art posted on Tumblr, but somewhat active on Instagram too!
Fascinated by the landscapes of Arda, and the characters within them. Many of my paintings are influenced by landscapes in Ohio and Appalachia, and often inspired by hikes with my lovely dogs.
