Discovery


"Hobbits"- I couldn't help but think of the great discovers in Tolkien's books- I hope it's not too corny.
I hope you have an excellent, worthwhile week!

Oh so beautiful. It makes you wish that they don't end up going into the darkness later in the story.

Although I'm one of the apparently few people who has not read any of the Tolkien books, I just love this paitning! The little marching silhouettes against the vibrant wash of sky create an air of excitement and allow the viewer to make his or her own story. Well done! Onward!
