My brother Jay introduced me to Tolkien's work back in the '60s and I fell in love with his amazing imagination and how wonderful complete his imagined world was! He created so many memorable characters and beautifully described locations.
I've always had a special fondness for his Ents. I live in a forest and I've always counted trees among my best friends. I know that sounds weird, but when you've lived with trees for decades and touched them and watch them as the change through the season, you develop a relationship with them! I'm facing the loss of one of my favorite trees. It needs to be brought safely down. I will miss its presence and its wonderful fall foliage (which has been the subject of one of my oil paintings).
This Ent painting doesn't quite look like my tree, but I hope it looks like the wise, gentle souls that are ents.
