Art: 'Lord of the Rings': An Art Journal Entry by Artist Patience
I initiated a long-term project with my art students, whereby we made homemade, DIY art journals, and worked in them throughout the year.  I then embarked on a project to create a guest entry myself into each one of my students' journals.  This particular student happens to be a big fan of the fantasy genre, and so I decided to do a piece inspired by that most classic of fantasy epics, J. R. Tolkien's, 'The Lord of the Rings'.  Therefore we have here the ranger/future king, known as Aragorn (son of Arathorn), deep in thought and reflection as he contemplates the considerable tasks ahead of him upon having been presented the powerful sword, "Anduril", reforged from the broken shards of the legendary "Narsil", the blade of the line of Elendil, which was known for having previously defeated the dread evil sorcerer, Sauron, the 'wannabe' Lord of the Ring....
