This is actually one of my favorite parts from the Treebeard chapter and you did it justice in your own style! :D

I was hoping for a larger print. I have a reading room for my children and would have wanted this for the main painting: ) However, I will consider buying the A3 prints and possibly finding another way to decorate using the smaller prints. Thank you for responding so quickly. I really love your work! It is very charming!

Is there a way to buy prints of your work? I am very interested in Fangorn. I have looked at other work for sale but I keep coming back to this one in particular hoping a print is out there.

Hey there again,
Just letting you know - this print is now available through Society6 as well, different sizes:
society6.com/ullathynell/fango…

(heh, that was much quicker to set up than I had thought : )

So anyway, there are now both options: buying from Society6, or from me, whichever you prefer. :)

Hello!
I haven't had the time to set up a proper online shop, unfortunately -- but I actually happen to have some A3 sized prints of this painting (Fangorn) on me, which I would love to sell!

If you don't mind buying a print directly from me (or if you have any questions about the purchase or the print), just send me email to ulla.thynell (at) gmail.com!

The Fangorn print would be 40 USD (I'm assuming you are from the US?), which includes shipping costs. I can accept payments via PayPal service (you just need a credit card to pay). The print is a heavy paper, signed by hand, and packed in a cardboard envelope. Shipping takes approximately 2-3 weeks.

Oh, and I also have prints of these paintings:
 Lothlorien by ullakko Leaving Hobbiton by ullakko
both also signed A3 sheets (though "Leaving Hobbiton" is slightly smaller). 
In case you might be interested in ordering more than one print at once, the additional prints would be half the price (20 USD each).

I don't think I've commented on this before, but, as a life-long (over 50 years) LOTR and Tolkien fan, I can't resist. This is good, and well drawn in a style similar to Tolkien's own. But, I have to admit that I see Treebeard in a different, and darker, way.
That does not take anything away from this, which is worthy of the Fave I give it.

That's okay, we all have our own interpretations! For me Treebeard appears (especially in this part of the book) a character with both warm, comical and on the other hand deeply profound and sad aspects to him, which is what I tried to depict here. (Not sure if I fully succeeded though, in my own opinion, even :D ) But I know my style in general even is often too juvenile (or "children's storybookish", nicely put) for some, whereas others appreciate it exactly for that reason. I can definitely understand your viewpoint about Treebeard. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and I'm glad you like the painting otherwise!

I look at this picture and automatically I think of Michael Hague (the illustrator of my copy of The Hobbit).  You've done well to reflect the work of a Tolkien illustrator, keep at it.

Isn't Treebeard always standing, to the point that he was surprised when reminded that Merry and Pippin would lie down to sleep?.. :P (sorry for being a smartass! I love your work, especially the play of light and colour in this one.)

Here's the exact quote from the book (Two Towers, chapter 4):
"On the right side of the bay there was a great bed on low legs; not more than a couple of feet high, covered deep in dried grass and bracken. Treebeard lowered himself slowly on to this (with only the slightest sign of bending at his middle), until he lay at full length, with his arms behind his head, looking up at the ceiling. upon which lights were flickering, like the play of leaves in the sunshine. Merry and Pippin sat beside him on pillows of grass."

Mahtavaa löytää joku, joka kuvittaa nimenomaan kirjan eikä elokuvan kohtauksia. X)
