Out of Arnor


Out of Arnor”

Oil on canvas, 13″x21″ wide.

Artist Commentary: I spent Saturday in Eriador, riding the weather Hills. Although in Bree I had heard rumours of evil creeping back into these Wilds, I hoped to hike the ruins of this ancient place, and to paint, if I might, scenes that captured glints of the glory that was fallen Arnor.

As the gloaming fell, I sought a safe refuge, and espied in the distance the furtive flicker of flame; I cautiously led Brego to seek its source. There, beside a broken archway, I found two men: one older, grey bearded, and puffing on his pipe; the other, younger, but sterner of mien, lost in thought as he gazed into the bonfire that they had lighted.

I bid them good evening and stayed in their company until dawn, trusting that fell things would not trespass upon such doughty companions. And a merry evening it was among Elf-friends, despite the aching sorrow that steeped these ancient battlements.
