It's still Froday here, just about, so I thought I'd post one of my favourite pieces of Frodo & Sam art ever. It's by Wendebee, and the effect it has on me is as powerful now as it was when I first set eyes on it quite a few years ago:

A Little Rest ...



She got the inspiration for this stunning pic from

I had no idea that's where she had gotten it from - it's still such a stunning piece of artwork. I've always thought that was one of the best renditions of Sean as Sam; and tho' you can't see Frodo's face because of the angle, your mind's eye fills in Lij's face very easily. And the original is quite moving and so heartbreaking. Thank you, dear.

That is so true - it's quite surprising that I adore this pic so much when you can't see Frodo's face at all - but as you say, it doesn't matter, the mind's eye sees it:)

I've never seen either of those before. She certainly did that photo justice. They are two very moving images.

Well, 'stunning' has already been well used, so I'll just say "Wow!"

Some people can really paint.

What a beautiful painting and a stunning picture. If anyone wonders why LOTR went straight to our hearts and souls, this must be the answer, there isn't anything fake in Tolkien's story. Truly amazing.
