So I’ve doomed myself, mingling as I do with all sorts of wrong crowds. More, soon.

UPDATE: Folks at Gallery Nucleus, besides interviewing me and posting my art, had the amazing kindness to invite me to join an incredible list of artists in their upcoming show Out Of The Shire. That list includes, among many others, the very talented Chris Appelhans, my MicroVisions fellow artist Allen Williams, Sam Bosma, and the remarkable Iain McCaig.
Exhibited will be:
> Witch-King of Angmar
> Radagast
and you can also see my other Tolkien pieces here:
> Fangorn & Fimbrethil
> Samwise Gamgee

Gallery Nucleus was kind enough to select my take on the Witch-King of the Nâzgul, as well as my previous Radagast piece, for the blog of their upcoming exhibition Out of the Shire.

I think the simple ‘rustic’ love of Sam and his Rosie (nowhere elaborated) is absolutely essential to the study of his (the chief hero's) character, and to the theme of the relation of ordinary life (breathing, eating, working, begetting) and quests, sacrifice, causes, and the 'longing for Elves', and sheer beauty.

J. R. R. Tolkien (1951)
