In the mirror of Galadriel

. Mountains loomed dark in the distance against a pale sky. A long grey road wound back out of sight...

Far away a figure came slowly down the road, faint and small at first, but growing larger and clearer as it approached. Suddenly Frodo realized that it reminded him of Gandalf. He almost called aloud the wizard's name, and then he saw that the figure was clothed not in grey but in white...; and in its hand there was a white staff. The head was so bowed that he could see no face, and presently the figure turned aside round a bend in the road and went out of the Mirror's view.

Doubt came into Frodo's mind: was this a vision of Gandalf on one of his many lonely journeys long ago, or was it Saruman?

The ferns, intended to create an impression of Lorien in the background have not really come out in the photo.   I should have made them a stronger/contrasting colour, I think and lost more of the grey of the background paper. Also I could have done more with the rim of the mirror.  Some runes, perhaps.

I'm going to try to draw something every day for a bit, I think.  I just don't draw enough to really get good at it.  Hence the new drawing a day tag.  I may not post the drawing every day, that might be a bit much, and most of the drawings will not be very large or detailed.  But I hope the existence of the tag will encourage me onward.
