Some time ago Kate purchased one of my Tolkien inspired works The Fall of Boromir Not long after I had a phone call from Kate asking would I like to go to her thirtieth birthday party, of course I said YES. Kate later decided to commision a painting, this was a landscape and within the landscape she said she would like a hare. Her idea was to have the hare outside of the canvas as part of the frame, something I wish I'd done and now of course could with the collaboration of master framers John Davies framers the craftsmen responsible for all of my Tolkien inspired frames including the latest designed by me for The Falls of Esgalduin.
After the completion of the new work titled The Anduin again inspired by Tolkien, I decided to create a still life incorporating an image of Kate from a signed photo she gave me. I also added some old maps from Tolkien's fictional universe. I sold the original, something I now regret, so decided to create a signed limited edition of only 300 copies worldwide. The edition is now available to purchase from my shop but for now here's a look at the painting which was created using my preferred medium, oil on canvas.
Framed size 58 x 63 cm approx 23 x 25 inches. Mounted ready for framing.
Each edition will be signed and numbered by the artist and carry a letter of Authenticity.
