Painting for a friend. " Gandalf and Frodo"

I offered, to a supporter of my works, a painting I would love to them to have as a thank you for the enthusiasm they expressed towards the art I displayed here . I asked if they had a specific scene from either " The Hobbit" or "The Lord of the Rings" they had in mind. I was suggested this quote:

'I should like to save the Shire, if I could--though there have been times when I thought the inhabitants too stupid and dull for words, and have felt that an earthquake or an invasion of dragons might be good for them. But I don't feel like that now. I feel that as long as the Shire lies behind, safe and comfortable, I shall find wandering more bearable: I shall know that somewhere there is a firm foothold, even if my feet cannot stand there again."

It's the scene in the study at Bag End when Gandalf and Frodo discover that Bilbo's ring is in fact "The One Ring". I tried to convey the moment when both parties have come to terms what must be done.Frodo, staring down at the ring in his hand, while Gandalf is lost in thought of things that might come to pass. Here is a link to a bigger picture and as always, thank you for liking my works.
