I wonder if Tom Bombadil would paint like this in an imaginative mood?

Ha ha! No, I can't picture Tom painting like this. Well, I guess I can't imagine him wanting to paint in the first place, he's so in thrall to what is real and right in front of him. I can't imagine him feeling the urge to try and capture nature through art anymore than he'd want to capture the Ring. If he did draw or paint I'd imagine his style would be more childlike, or at least more curvy and organic. :)

thank you, SB. I'm so glad you enjoyed!

what do you think? Do you think this could be signed "TB"?

Anything is possible, especially with a being who has lived for so long, and takes such joy in everything. :)

i don't know....when i look at this, i hear "Rhapsody in Blue" playing in my head. Which is a beautiful piece, don't get me wrong. But it (to me) celebrates the age of industry.

But you have raised a fascinating point: what, indeed, would TB paint (or draw) if he were so inclined?

Personally, i think i could see him making botanical drawings or perhaps anatomical drawings (a la Leonardo). But i am not sure about this.

I think....for me....i don't know enough about who Tom really is. For me, it would be interesting to explore who he is in poem form....

if Frodo would be so good as to guide me....

Your musical analogies are perfect.

TB's choice of yellow boots and blue feather and his boisterousness make me think his tastes and style would be Van Gogh-ish. (-:

oh my goodness....i think you very well may have hit the Bombadill on the boots.

Or....perhaps he'd be Peter Max......

i still want to explore SB's thoughts on this, though....

now to squirrel away the time to do that.....
