Not all those who wander are lost

An inspiration for this mixed media piece was a poem by J.R.R. Tolkien:

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.


  1. I just found your work. I've left two comments already. I need to leave one more. I adore this piece. Color, line - everything about it. It is so perfect!

  2. Elena and Russ, Thank you for visiting my site and for your very sweet comment. It means so much to me. I responded by email but am not sure if the reply address with the comment will work!?!
    Elena, your work is very strong and very beautiful. I will be waiting for your updates.
