Frodo captivated by Sam's heartfelt description of him in Ithilien. 

wallace_trust: Me and my plum tree (Default)
With Frodo and Sam, it seems to be either heaven or hell! This was the first of my garden-inspired paintings. I had just finished the background and was trying to figure out how I wanted Frodo to be sitting with his book, when I felt the need for some new LOtR music. I went on YouTube where there are always new creations, and stumbled upon the studio recording of "Now and For Always," which I had never heard before.

After I revived, I worked furiously on this almost nonstop for three days.  Unfortunately, after I was finished I realized I had forgotten to add their foot hair  ^_^;

I use the language of flowers in all of my paintings.  Here the wisteria, which means many things, stands for courage, and so do the daffodils.  The forget-me-nots are self-explanatory, while the primroses mean love and "I will protect you."  The irises bring a touch of romance into the mix, as do the hyacinths, while the orange butterflies represent happiness and the white ones indicate pure innocence.
