I’ve been reading Tolkien’s The Silmarillion, listening to podcasts about this work, and indulging in archery. These themes, therefore, have come out in this art journal entry.

The text is a verse from Tolkien’s poem, The Lay of Luthien,  converted into an elvish-style font.   In English,

Farewell sweet earth and northern sky,
for ever blest, since here did lie
and here with lisson limbs did run
beneath the Moon, beneath the Sun,
Luthien Tinuviel.  (p. 178)
