Incredibly amazing, you left me without words, your paintings are perfect! If someday I have a tenth of your skill, it will be ten times more than I have ever imagined.

Brilliant

"Glaurung stirred then for the last time ere he died,
"Hail Nienor, daughter of Húrin. We meet again ere the end. I give thee joy that thou hast found thy brother at last. And now thou shalt know him: a stabber in the dark, treacherous to foes, faithless to friends, and a curse unto his kin, Túrin son of Húrin! But the worst of all his deeds thou shalt feel...in thyself."

Very interesting that the dragon's head is upside down-it is evocative of the sense that Nienor's world has been turned upside down by Glaurung.

The composition and color palette of this remind me of Galen-Kallela's painting Lemminkäinen's Mother :) Lovely piece!

Gorgeous! I love the look in his face and the sword under his body. Nienor's body language is just masterful! I did not like the dragon design much. Anyways, this one is amazing!
