Gandalf’s Wise Words

I started painting about two years ago. There was a quote from Lord of the Rings (obviously) that I really liked, so I decided to paint it. I had never painted on canvas before and had no idea what I was doing, but it turned out pretty good.

The quote is from the Fellowship of the Ring and is Gandalf’s response to Frodo’s despair. Although I am not on a quest to save the world, I take this quote to mean that we should live our lives to the fullest. I also relate it to two of my tattoos which say “live free” and “seize the day.” I take all of these as reminders to make growth choices, make my actions meaningful and to be happy.
