'Thus Maedhros and Maglor gained not the jewel; but it was not lost. For Ulmo bore up Elwing out of the waves, and he gave her the likeness of a great white bird, and upon her breast there shone as a star the Silmaril, as she flew over the water to seek Eärendil her beloved.'

JRR Tolkien: The Silmarillion: Chapter 24: Of the Voyage of Eärendil and the War of Wrath

Awesome! The pure light of Silmaril, the brave heart of Elwing. The sea is roaring and mourning the Mouth of Sirion.

This is a poetic comment, which is one of my favourite kinds as it makes me think I'm doing something right. Thanks! :D

Great painting, I like the colors and the composition.

Thank you very much - this remains one that I'm happy with (which is unusual, as self-critical as I am ;))

You are welcome. It is not so good to be too much self-critical ;-)) Art is a joy and love of creation, I wish you all the best :-)

This is marvelous, Peet. You continue to outdo yourself.
peet's avatar
I thank you kindly, though this one is a little over two years old now :)

Perhaps I should have said 'outdid'. :) What caught my eye
was just how nicely you handled the water.

I'm being a pedant ;) Thanks again! :hug:
