Awhile ago, I was asked by a shcool to do world war one mural with the children in year 5. Over a a number of days which lasted a few months (starting and stopping because of british bad weather) I employed the children as artist assistants to create a memorial for this way. The result was so good that I decided to create a studio version.
What is stricking is the emotion in the picture. Jonathan Jenkins is going off to war, he is saying good bye to his family in the poppy fields. The Question is this, did he come back? The clue is the pearls.
