Bag End – Hobbiton


When life is hard and scary and when hope seems to turn its back on me, I try to imagine the beautiful realms of the Shire in the first days of spring. Inspired by the art of Alan Lee, this is a first illustration of Bag End and the Shire. And along with the merry-fragment-one-never-gets-enough-of from the symphony of Howard Shore, the full landscape can be seen. I think I almost saw Sam Gamgee gardening in a corner 🙂

“He used often to say there was only one Road; that it was like a great river: its springs were at every doorstep, and every path was its tributary. ‘It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out of your door,’ he used to say. ‘You step into the Road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there is no knowing where you might be swept off to.” JRR Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

  1. I love your Shire; a wonderful place and painting. And the music is wonderful too. Just the other day I went into my daughters’ room and she was listening to this music too; we enjoyed it together.
