I really love warm colors so I decided to paint a volcanic-themed environment. I call this latest piece of mine "Bridge Too Far". I got inspiration from a couple of scenes from The Lord of the Rings trilogy- the one in which Gandalf casts away the Balrog and another where the final confrontation between Frodo, Sam and Gollum takes place.
