Shire Home

This Shire Home, just below Bag End, was the home of Sam's Dad, the Gaffer. As you know, Sam & Rosie moved into Bag End when Frodo and Bilbo went West from the Grey Havens. Note the rows of vegetables and the Mushroom Room at the left rear of the house. The gnarly tree adds some character to the composition and the curvy walls present a problem in shadow that any art student should and would welcome.

GRAPHITE LITHOGRAPHIC STYLE MINIATURE LANDSCAPES ó $25 each. Yes, that is the wholesale price, no discount for quantity, because thereís a lot of cost behind each print, and we donít control the printing costs, the printers do. The originals were created in graphite on Heavyweight 300 gram Arches Rives BFK etching paper, and were massaged into prints by Marvette, who matched the prints with the originals. In a frame, you canít tell the difference between the print and the original. My original graphite works are no longer for sale, prints only.
