J.R.R. Tolkien

J.R.R. Tolkien: Collage

~19" x 19"

Fall 2003

Not for sale

The Tolkien caricature was from a T-shirt given to my husband Curt years ago by an old college friend, and worn regularly over a number of summers until holes began to appear in its back. I could not just discard it, so I mounted it and used some fabric paint for flesh color, painted the pipe and staff, and uncoiled some cord for whispy white fibers. I had made a futon cover for our new sunroom, and used scraps from that for the frame; it was Curt's idea to add one more piece to emanate from the pipe! This picture is not framed, but mounted on thick cardboard so it appears to stand out a bit from the wall. The one addition I needed to make to the picture itself was the eye peering out; originally it was drawn simply as a squint.
