Art: Crickhollow at Twilight by Dreamflower

Artist: Dreamflower
Title: "Crickhollow at Twilight"
Rating: G
Inspiration "As a matter of fact, he had already chosen and bought a little house at Crickhollow in the country beyond Bucklebury. To all but Sam, he pretended he was going to settle there permanently. The decision to set out eastwards had suggested the idea to him; for Buckland was on the eastern borders of the Shire, and as he had lived there in childhood, his going back would at least seem credible." (FotR, Book I, Chapter III, "Three is Company")
Media: Acrylic paint on 9X12 acrylic paper
Artist's Notes: I've always loved the idea of Crickhollow, so this seemed the perfect chance to attempt a picture of it.
