Echoes by Tolkyes
Echoes
Oil on canvas. 15"x30".
Inspired by the song of the same name by Pink Floyd from their 'Meddle' album.
It was influenced by the darkness and eeriness of the song as well as the contemplative lyrics.

Lord of the Reedy River by Tolkyes
Lord of the Reedy River
Oil on canvas. 12"x24".

Inspired by the song of the same name as sung by Mary Hopkin (written by Donovan).

We are but Glowing Embers by Tolkyes
We are but Glowing Embers
Oil on canvas. 18"x24".

We are but glowing embers
flaming brightly at times,
especially when we are young.
We dwell amidst vine-covered ruins,
our lives shrouded in mist and Wonder
until we are snuffed out
or slowly fade away.

This painting was also partially inspired by the song, "The Voyage of Bran"
(not the 8th century version but the one by Brendan Perry from 'Dead Can Dance'- his 'Eye of the Hunter' album).

Tolkyes's Profile Picture
Tolkyes
James McCarthy
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
I grew up with a taste for sci-fi and fantasy but the beauty of nature (especially Winter and the other seasons) has always moved me.
Music inspires me to paint, especially "mindscape' music, such as prog rock, psychedelic music, classical, new age and medieval music.
Places from my childhood memories or places that I see in and around my neighborhood influence some of the landscapes in my paintings, as well.
