This week in art class...


We had to come up with a painting that would suggest the idea of 'monumental' and 'transient'.
So here is Nerdanel and her art, monumental,  as her husband and her sons, transient fade out of presence and into memory.

Painting this meant I had to explain the basic concept of the Silmarillion to the class, which I felt I managed with reasonable brevity.  It's a great pity that photographing this almost completely washed out the background showing Tirion on its green hill which  was quite proud of.

I'd say your painting carries out the brief very well and is intriguing, besides.

" . . . fade out of presence and into memory." Often sad to be an elf, I think.

Very effective.
It reminds me of something else, but I can't pin it down.
In a good way!
