Another picture inspired by the Silmarillion, this time of Yavanna, Tolkien's goddess of growing things. Yavanna wasn't altogether pleased by the idea of elves, men, dwarves, and the other races of Middle Earth coming to have dominion over the plants and animals she nurtured. So, this picture is of her wandering Middle Earth before the awakening of the elves, pondering what their coming will mean. This is a sketch for a full-color piece I will finish and post...someday. Alias Sketchbook.
