A First World War photograph inspired this painting dwelling on the moment a little girl sees the soldiers going off to fight in the presence of her father. Combining collage pieces of typed letters and musical notes together with the image I worked into the scene with feelings of family bonds and heart ties. The soldiers in purple and the sky a warm yellow with a soft glow. There are patches of orange and desaturated pinks. Acrylic on hardwood panel, varnished, sealed and framed.
Another painting from this period also inspired by an old sepia photograph.
