Happy Birthday Hobbits!

First, thanks to the Catholic Illustrator's Guild for my acceptance! That quite made my morning.
My name is Mary Sullivan, I am an artist/illustrator in the making (hopefully), and here is my blog. 

Yesterday, Sept. 22nd, was Mr. Bilbo and Frodo's birthday! A bit of celebration is called for. I myself found a bit of time to watch the Fellowship of the Ring, and draw a little before work. 

'You mean to go on with your plan then?
'I do. I made up my mind months ago, and I haven't changed it.'
It is based on this:

Inside Bag End, Bilbo and Gandalf were sitting at the open window of a small room  looking out west on to the garden. The late afternoon was bright and peaceful. The flowers glowed red and golden: snapdragons and sunflowers, and nasturtians trailing  over the turf walls and peeping in at the round windows.
    'How bright your garden looks!' said Gandalf.
    'Yes," said Bilbo. 'I am very fond indeed of it, and of all the dear old Shire; but I think I need a holiday."
     'You mean to go on with your plan then?'
     'I do. I made up my mind months ago, and I haven't changed it.'
     'Very well. It is no good saying any more. Stick to you plan-- your whole plan, mind -- and I hope it will turn out for the best, for you, and for all of us.
    'I hope so. Anyway I mean to enjoy myself on Thursday, and have my little joke.'
    'Who will laugh, I wonder?' said Gandalf, shaking his head.  
    'We shall see,' said Bilbo.

Happy Belated Hobbit Day everyone!
