Moonlight on the Dam: a painting from long ago.

A card painted around Easter time 1989 for my dad’s birthday. He loved Tolkien and Tolkien illustrators – Alan Lee, John Howe, the Hildebrandts, etc.

This picture is nothing to do with The Hobbit or LOTR at all, really. It was inspired by a magical-looking autumnal moon shining on a farm dam out in the South Gippsland countryside, a fox running across a paddock, and a gnome in someone’s garden (now up in Gnome Heaven).
