Narcissus & Hildorien

 We were working on paintings of rivers and reflections the last couple of weeks.  I painted the River Lynher in spring.  Then I added a flower: narcissus poeticus.  Then I added a Narcissus and Echo.  I'm still not sure if this was a good idea or not, though I do like the original narcissus flower.

And I had two B2Mem Bingo prompts: Canvas and Hildorien, so I tried experimenting with my new brusho pigment (it's a powder you sprinkle and then squirt with water to make effects)  to do a Silmarillion painting of Men fleeing Hildorien, the first home, after Morgoth came and made an unspecified Darkness, and some people decided to worship him.  I don't think it entirely works, but I learned some things from doing it!
