Isn't it uncanny? I was just remarking to Mews, it's amazing how well illustrators anticipated Frodo in art. You have seen it too. Perhaps we each have our own special Frodo-seeking Palantiri.

I am sorry, but I am not sure that I will be posting images of Jan's diptych. It's hers, of course, since she purchased it, but it is still, in a sense, the painter's work. I won't post any images if the painter (or Jan, since I haven't asked he) rather I didn't. The artist may not like her work showing up on the internet for anyone to download, work she made for a particular friend and patron.

Also, even though Glen took pretty good images of the canvases, I know from tweaking them against the real paintings to adjust for colour and light values, the digital images don't begin do the real pictures justice. I could very well imagine the artist not wishing her work known through what really are inadequate images, even though they are better than the images that she has of it.

I'll ask, though. The diptych is very appealing. Jan asked for a folk-art style, which is what the paintings are done in, with Frodo and Sam not looking like their film incarnations. I think it's a work of great charm.
