This is one in a series of four paintings of my nieces and nephews in Middle Earth. I chose locations and roles for them based on their personalities. This is Kepha as a knight of Rohan. Kepha is a true little boy; he loves to take risks, he has lots of energy, and he is a bundle of love and joy. Like a Gondorian knight, he’s fiercely loyal to those he loves. He even has his plastic “armor of God” set, so he’s ready to be a knight. It was pretty obvious that he needed to be depicted this way.
