" Then Bilbo saw a sight: ...
The lands opened wide about him, filled with the waters of the river which broke up and wandered in a hundred winding courses, or halted in marshes and pools dotted with isles on every side; but still a strong water flowed on steadily through the midst.   And far away, its dark head in a torn cloud, there loomed the Mountain!  ... Bilbo had come far and through many adventures to see it, and now he did not like the look of it in the least. "
The Lonely Mountain, The Hobbit, by JRR Tolkien

The second in a series of landscape paintings inspired by both Britain and Middle-earth, this one based on Buachaille Etive Mòr in the Highlands of Scotland.

(Can you spot the Arkenstone and a glimpse of dragon?)

This is just in a word: breathtaking. The frame is gorgeous, the scenery beautifully rendered and the color palette is lovely. This would be my ideal dining room framed artwork if I had the means. If I'm ever in a mood and need brilliant inspiration for finding calmness of mind, this is the piece I will return to.

Not at this resolution.

It may be necessary to think outside the box, or in this case, slightly outside the picture. ;)

That stuff in the frame? Sorry, I couldn't make it out.
Still a lovely depiction though!

That's a shame. I tried it on my phone (in addition to the PC) and it was still distinguishable. Ah well, thanks anyway. :meow:
