The harp no longer sings by Gold-Seven The harp no longer sings by Gold-Seven
From J. R. R. Tolkien's Silmarillion, though not a direct scene.

Schmincke watercolours on Canson Montval paper, 29x40 cm.

After casting his Silmaril into the sea, Maglor is left to linger on the Hither Shore - never again coming among his people, caught in a world of his own where music no longer brings consolation, surrounded by the ruins of the former greatness of the Noldor, whose downfall he had a part in.... quite possibly his brother's fortress of Himring, which alone was not swallowed by the sea. :(

Pretty much a re-do of this one. [link]

This is gorgeous. Amazing detail and emotion... :D I love the Silmarillion, I love your artwork... Put the two together, and I'm in heaven! (Or Valinor, rather.)

I doubt it... probably something sadder. Eärendil may have brought hope to Elves and Men, but not to the house of Feanor.

The fair and melancolic song by the great Minstrel Maglor ...
I composed a meldoy for the Poetry... but it is far from being not bad ...
The only well succeeded  trial on poetry adaptation into song was With the Jabberwocky, by Lewis Carroll.
I'm Not a talented bard, nor a poet nor painter...
