The artist asks not to republish their work, but there are some gorgeous paintings on their tumblr, such as this Farewell to Boromir, as well as more lighthearted but adorable art.

This is worth posting here. I had not been familiar with Joe Gilronan's work before I saw this on Facebook, but from the pictures here, it is pretty spectacular.

Wow, those are gorgeous, Voronwë! At the link, I think my favorite was the Fellowship at Rivendell.

The Moria painting reminds me a lot of paintings of scenery in the American West by nineteenth-century artists.

Just noting that the first picture that I linked to is showing up in my tapatalk feed, which is lovely.
