It’s like this painting perfectly captures everything we know about the Blue Wizards – they went to the far East, never to return.
Actually, I feel jsut a tiny bit of sadness looking at this.

Yes, it is a sad scene, in many ways. I would agree. That the lands are strange and forbidding might be a part of that; I wanted it to seem to be strange. I see them passing through the lands near the Sea of Rhun.

I have just seen the exhibition in Banbury Museum and this is the painting that captured my imagination the most, I just had to keep going back to look at it

The symbolism of there being two Blue Wizards always intrigued me. Maybe since their fates were to be unknown to us or to middle earth, at least they’d have each other as companions maybe. Who knows…
