in comfortable middle age at 50 years old, was hired in spite of himself as a "burglar" by the wizard Gandalf and 13 dwarves led by their king Thorin Oakenshield on a quest to reclaim the Lonely Mountain and its treasure from the dragon Smaug. The adventure took Bilbo and the companions through the wilderness, to the elf haven of Rivendell, across the Misty Mountains and the black forest of Mirkwood, to Lake-town in the middle of Long Lake, and eventually to the Mountain itself. Here, after the dragon was killed and the Mountain reclaimed, the Battle of Five Armies took place.

In his journey, Bilbo encountered other fantastic creatures, including trolls, elves, giant spiders, a man who can change shape into a bear, goblins, eagles, wolves and a slimy, murderous creature named Gollum. Underground, near Gollum's lair, Bilbo accidentally found a magic ring of invisibility, which he used to escape from Gollum.

By the end of the journey, Bilbo had become wiser and more confident, having saved the day in many gruesome situations. He rescued the dwarves from giant spiders with the magic ring and a short Elven-sword he acquired. He used the ring to sneak around in hostile environments, as well as his wits to smuggle the dwarves out of the elves' prisons. He was able to hold his own in conversation with the wily Smaug. When tensions arose over ownership of the recovered treasure, he tried unsuccessfully to bring the opposing sides to compromise, using a stolen heirloom jewel as a leverage. This strained his relationship with Thorin, but the two were reconciled at Thorin's deathbed. At the end of the story, Bilbo returned to his home in the Shire only to find that several of his relations, believing him to be dead, were trying to claim his home and possessions. In addition to becoming wealthy from his share of the dwarves' treasure, he found that he had traded respectability for experience and wisdom.

and this is the night Bilbo meet 13 dwarves and wizard,and planning to the the Lonely Mountain to take back the treasure from the dragon~~~

Today I'm presenting the birth of a new day, the moment when the sun dresses the landscape in bright light. With tender touch caresses every stone, every twig, and the nature is leaving the cold embrace of the night and shines in all its splendor.

"Ember of Life"
oil on canvas, original size: 48 x 40 cm.

As a child I believed that fireflies are fabulous creatures from a fairytale world and in the night they are trying to illuminate their way back home. Perhaps back then on a subconscious level was the birth of the idea to paint the fireflies, but in recent years often comes to my mind and slowly formed in the course of time. 2 weeks ago I decided that the time has come and I know well enough the"Ember of Life" in nature to reproduce them on the canvas. Whether I have succeeded, you have to decide :)

Finally finished this one...taking it to Jasper with me when I go to for the re-opening of Mountain Gallery at Fairmount. Athabasca Falls in Jasper Park is a must see for anyone in the area.

I never seem to get bored painting these falls...so many different angles!
