At the Sign of the Ivy Bush



“At the Sign of the Ivy Bush”
Oil on canvas, 13″x21″ wide.

Artist Commentary: I spent Saturday in I Drann, east of Hobbiton. Following The Water west from the Baranduin, I reached the Bywater market in the late afternoon; and with an autumn evening waxing fair, I perched my easel by the stream, facing east so that I could descry the the purple hills I’d passed by that morning.

I painted, seeking to capture with my palette the gilt glimmers of light through trees and the reflections on The Water as evening descended. Lamps were lighted, and though the little folk were curious, most passed me by with just a nod. They strolled toward the Ivy Bush while violet clouds coursed across a cerulean sky; soon all that could be seen were the red and golden glow from the round windows and the twinkling of the lamps along the Bywater road.
