Painting Hobbiton Mural

It was one of the most fun paintings I have ever done! A few years ago, I was asked by a neighbor down the street to paint a mural of the Hobbiton Shire, on their garage wall, for her husband’s Christmas present. He was a big fan of the Lord of the Rings trilogy. It was my first attempt at anything quite this extensive, but I agreed to do it. I tried to incorporate significant parts of the story into the painting. This is how it turned out.

  1. It is indeed a marvelous mural. The color so vivid, you certainly did hit a lot of notes from the story. You even have Gandalf coming up the road. Thank for sharing it, Dwight!!! ๐Ÿช„๐Ÿง™๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿง๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ ๐Ÿ’™

    • Thank you Deb. It was a really fun and challenging project! Getting the images to all come together in a meaningful way was a challenger for sure. And then when I got there they said, ‘Well he likes The Fires of Mordal, can you put that in as well, So I pushed it way back in the left corner and it worked!

  2. WOW! This is one of the most impressive murals I have seen in a long time. This type of art is always so refreshing to see, it never fails to catch my eye. If you don’t mind me asking, how long did this take and did you complete this all by yourself? Thank you for sharing!
