The Battle on Durin
The Battle on Durin's Tower

"... it issued at last in Durin's Tower carved in the living rock of Zirakzigil, the pinnacle of the Silvertine. There upon Celebdil was a lonely window in the snow, and before it lay a narrow space, a dizzy eyrie above the mists of the world The sun shone fiercely there, but all below was wrapped in cloud. Out he sprang, and even as I came behind, he burst into new flame."

Greg painted this scene of Gandalf fighting The Balrog in the Battle on Durin's Tower as a commission for a Tolkien: Lord of the Rings Museum in 2022.
This painting measures a whopping nine feet wide and five and a half feet tall!
