"By the starlit mere of Cuivienen, Water of Awakening, they rose from the sleep of Illuvatar; and while they dwelt yet silent by Cuivienen their eyes beheld first of all things the stars of Heaven. Therefore they have ever loved the starlight, and have revered Varda Elentari above all the Valar." She's my favorite Vala. This picture doesn't do her justice. But it's my only attempt ever and I dredged it up just recently and thought I'd share. Charcoal.
