Artwork Description

'Then I saw, or it seemed that I saw, a boat floating on the water, glimmering grey, a small boat of a strange fashion with a high prow, and there was none to row or steer it. An awe fell on me, for a pale light was round it. But I rose and went to the bank, and began to walk out into the stream, for I was drawn towards it. Then the boat turned towards me, and stayed ist pace, and floated slowly by within my hand's reach, yet I durst not handle it. It waded deep, as if it were heavily burdened, and it seemed to me as it passed under my gaze that it was almost filled with clear water, from which came the light; and lapped in the water a warrior lay asleep.' J.R.R. Tolkien: The Lord of the Rings, Book 4, Chapter 5: The Window on the West

This is a fabulous painting, as are all the others you've just submitted. Welcome to Epilogue. Your pallet really lends itself to the LotR genre. I am impressed with your body of work here.

Art at its best.
