My dear Bagginses and Boffins, Tooks and Brandybucks, Grubbs, Chubbs, Hornblowers, Bolgers, Bracegirdles and Proudfoots!
My latest venture into the beautiful world of Middle-earth has drawn to a close and I now have a new piece of artwork to share with you all!
This piece was inspired by the song of the same title as recited by Bilbo Baggins when he leaves the Shire to head for Rivendell in The Lord of the Rings, The Fellowship of the Ring, Book One, Chapter I: “A Long-expected Party”
The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way,
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say.
Due to interest shown in this artwork during the creation process, I decided to do a limited edition run of Giclee prints and open an Etsy store; there are 50 prints in all (Bilbo’s age when setting off on his first adventure) and once they are gone they are to never again be repeated!
These prints are created using archival quality, Fine Art Trade Guild approved printers and inks on Somerset Enhanced Velvet 255gsm paper.
Each print is 8″ x 6″ inches.
Each print also comes with a free replica of Bilbo’s button acorn as a necklace!
Also, each and every piece is hand-signed using the finest quality liquid gold, mined by the Dwarves of Erebor and brought back from my own travels to Middle-earth!
The opportunity for you to own one of these limited edition prints is yours for the taking, you can do so by
I hope you have enjoyed this post and the artwork as much as I have enjoyed working on it over the past few weeks; if you know of anyone else who might be interested in owning one of these prints then by all means feel free to share this post, or tag others in it; it is much appreciated!
