Into the West at Dawn Can't Post

is the title I gave this acrylic painting. It was originally inspired when we "sub-conspirators" of the Map Quest chose to thank Ent Maiden for her hard work for seeing the project through and the compassion she displayed to her fellow Tornsibs. When Googleing for an Ent Maiden picture I found a few cartoon types, but nothing that would be suitable for a gift so I decided to try to create one of my own.

I have not had a lot of time to paint in my lifetime so the learning process is sometimes frustrating especially as I tried to get the paint to behave and do what I wanted or to get her to scan properly which finally happened at a professional scanning business. She began to take on a life of her own representing so much more than just a painting. I am in the middle of a fight for the Shire so to say as a developer wants to develop 17,000 acres in our rural community just a few miles away. I can't say how desperately I have wished for an army of Ents the last month or so. And lately at night I wish Treebeard could sing to me so I could sleep.

She is holding back her branches as she tries to get a good look at where she is going as she prepares to leave on a journey to a place she has never known. Young and beautiful, as Treebeard remembers the Entwifes and Maidens to have been before they left and went into the west. She has a basket of corn to plant when she finds her new home.

A myth is far truer than a history, for a history only gives a story of the shadows, whereas a myth gives a story of the substances that cast the shadows.~Annie Besant
Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole, and once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
