There are worse things to have on the brain. :) This is a fun post. I am a big fan of JRR Tolkien and currently re-re-reading The Lord of the Rings.

I love this. I have always wanted to do my own take on the Hobbit shire, but can't get the orig images out of my mind long enough to be original. This take looks fresh. Good Work.

Thanks skylar. Yeah LOTR (the movies) are very visually powerful and it's almost impossible not to think about the movies when you go to paint something like this. I just try not to fight it. You know cycles4fun brought up a good point. I might start up a thread for LOTR projects and see what gets submitted.

I would contribute. That's just the thing to get me thinking in a new direction.

OK so I started a thread in Art Projects. I can't wait to see what people come up with!
