The Conversation



“The Conversation

Oil on canvas, 13″x21″ wide.

Artist Commentary:

I spent Saturday on the Greenway, south of Bree. I had been traveling for many days, and had begun my journey near the ruined bridge at Tharbad. From there I trekked northward, ever mindful of the movement in these quiet lands of strange folk, sightings of whom had recently been all the talk at the Prancing Pony.

I halted early on Midsummer’s morning (for the seasons flow differently in Eriador than in our own world) as I approached Bree, and I set up my easel at the edge of the road. The plain was golden-lit in the morning sunlight, and long shadows fell between the spot I had chosen and the hillside town in the distance.

Ere long I heard footsteps and the voice of someone humming a tune as he strode up the Greenway from the south. At nearly the same time, a horse and rider came from Bree along the road, and these two travelers met near where I was painting.

Older men they appeared to be, and yet with all the vigour of youth. One was clad in brown and the other grey, and it was clear that theirs was an urgent business, for ere long the one remounted his horse and headed east, while the other hastened his steps northward towards Bree. I did not eavesdrop upon their conversation, but I could not help but wonder if their business touched on the evil tidings I had heard of late.

Oil on canvas, 13″x21″ wide.

Artist Commentary: I spent Saturday in the land of the Beornings. The day was warm, but as twilight came a gilded Buck Moon arose over fields of corn. There I joined Radagast the Brown on his nightly pilgrimage through fen and field. Staff in hand, he allowed us to pause only to descry the soaring of starlings or to heed the rustlings of woodland beasts in deep brambles.
