(( A reply to this letter. ))
Greetings Lady Manadhlaer,
I am glad to read that your portrait pleases you. In my mind I should actually apologize for how long it took to bring it to fruition. I do not only wish to capture the likeness of hröa (body), but fëa (soul), as well.
Besides them the colours deliver their own message: the orange symbolizes the Houses of Healing and the red (messier word compared to the rest of the clean text) symbolizes the order of the Pillar, both under your protection.
I had to leave the unveiling celebration too soon, but you are welcome to visit me any time, should you wish to discuss art or anything else.
I did mean when I said that you are not a ship but an isle. You have been a shining light and a stable ground to many castaways. Not even storms have made you sink.
You can see when when you need me. Yours,
