I think one thing you're running up against...

I think one thing you're running up against... [In reply to] Can't Post

is that people can draw and paint all the pictures they want drawing from Tolkien but if they want to make money from them, they have to work out the licensing and it's a tricky, complicated business that many won't bother with.

Have you looked through deviantART? (don't let the name throw you) That site can be a treasure trove of artwork and if you find something you like, perhaps you could work out a private arrangement with the artist to get a print quality file you could have printed on your own. It wouldn't be a large print, for sure. But if you got something in the range of 8.5x11 and under and then had it matted with a nice frame, it could be lovely.

Otherwise, I suspect all you'll find is movie related merchandise.

use categories on the left to narrow results down.

off hand thought: One of the things that distinguishes Galadriel is her swan boats. I have this really lovely card a friend-in-Tolkien from Boston sent me. It's either artwork or an altered photograph of the swan boats in Boston with glitter applied. You could do a sub theme of swans that could be fun.
This photo of the card doesn't do it justice. It shows off the structure of the glitter too much when the real effect is just sparkly.

edit to add: it might be worth searching through Etsy. I don't use that site a lot and don't have a clear sense if they'd have anything. But it doesn't cost anything to look. The site is down now so I can't do a quick search to see what I'd find.
