Beautiful. I love the flow of her dress and the feel of the scene. It really feels alive, if that makes sense.

i love the way you portrayed the relationship of these two. you can realy see that she loves and pitys turin at the same time and his look expresses very well the pain caused by his troubled life. he is kind of absend and while this is a very intimidating moment in whitch he shows that pain somehow, he probably wouldn't allow many people to share it with him, what shows also his affection toward findulias. but at the same time they are not close enough to touch each other and it's kind of impossible for findulias to console turin even if that is in my opinion her greatest wish.. i love the expression of their faces the most i think but all the rest of the painting is stunning too!!
in general i love all your tolkien art and especially the ones for the children of hurin are gorgeous. you are truly gifted!
thanks for uploading and sharing such nice work and keep it up please ;)

For a long time I had this picture in many different places but I did not know who had done it.
And now that I know who has done it, I only can say.. Wonderful, really wonderful.

This is beautiful, exactly as I imagined it when I read the book. Finduilas and her unrequited love for Turin make me cry every time I read the Children of Hurin.
