This is lovely [In reply to] Can't Post

You have quite a talent, very reminiscent of the peaceful, perfect Bag End of The Hobbit (it's not quite so peaceful when Ringwraiths are about!). Pictures like this make me wish I was Bilbo.

"Radagast is, of course, a worthy wizard, a master of shapes and changes of hue, and he has much lore of herbs and beasts, and birds are especially his friends."-Gandalf, The Lord of the Rings.

Wow. I could lose myself in that landscape. [In reply to] Can't Post

Where have you put the mural?

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

I have to ask: [In reply to] Can't Post

Have you painted this within an inset of your wall, or is the wall flat and I've been fooled by the quality of your work?

I'd be very happy to have this on my living room wall - it has a relaxing, homely feel to it.

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

Clever clever you! [In reply to] Can't Post

It opens up the room and reminds you every day of a place we'd all like to be. Beautifully done!
Unfortunately there's no green emoticon for envy, so just Smile. Maybe you'll inspire someone else to attempt A Room with a Middle-earth View. Hmmm...I have a couple of less-than-appealing closet doors.....

Much appreaciated. [In reply to] Can't Post

Thank you for the compliment. The mural is on a flat wall. Its a type of style called "trompe l'oeil". It gives the painting a 3-D quality to it. Thank you again
for your feedback. here is a link to a video of the mural to show you its flat.

Skillfully done! [In reply to] Can't Post

That is beautiful and amazing and I really want it in my house now! You've managed to get a lot of depth into that landscape. Brilliant work, you're very talented!

"Earth shakes
Stone breaks
The forest is at your door
The dark sleep is broken
The woods have awoken
The trees have gone to war
Roots rend, wood bends
The Ents have answered the call
Through branches now the wind sings
Fell the power of living things
The trees have gone to war"
From 'The Ents'

Better Youtube link [In reply to] Can't Post

Thank you all again for your very kind comments regarding the mural. I had some links attached to the original post but they seem to be corrupted.

Here is a working one that I just uploaded.

Great job! [In reply to] Can't Post

I wish I could paint like that. But I have no talent for painting (and I've tried time and again Evil). Usually I find "wall-tattoos" tacky, but this one I would buy in a flash.
