Beren and Luthien: growing old together by MirachRavaia Beren and Luthien: growing old together by MirachRavaia
Tolkien and his wife, Edith, as Beren and Lúthien near the end of their life. The names "Beren" and "Lúthien" are written together with their names on the graves of Tolkien and his wife, so it seemed to me like a proper way of honoring them to use their faces for the characters in this drawing.

B2MeM 2014 prompt:
'For our spring and our summer are gone by, and they will never be seen on earth again save in memory.'" (Galadriel, The Fellowship of the Ring, "Farewell to Lórien"): Write or create art about a character who has reached old age.

Krásné! Skutečně nevím že bych někdy viděl Berena a Lúthien nakreslené v pozdějším věku, přitom to je jedna z nejkrásnějších věcí na jejich příběhu – že po všech těch dobrodružstvích pak mohli žít desítky let spolu, vychovali syna a zůstali bok po boku až do smrti. A spojení s Tolkienem samotným a jeho ženou je naprosto na místě a tím je to o to krásnější. :-)

You don't see pictures of them as old people often, but the story did say that they lived as Mortals for many years! It makes complete sense that they would age. :)

Indeed, and I think that this is the true test and show of love - not winning someone's hand, but growing old together, facing the troubles of everyday life side by side and finding the other beautiful even when their hair is white and face wrinkled.
