Art Description

Painting: Oil on Canvas.

Part of my series "The Colonists". It's hard to believe that there was a time when even pre-teens were conscripted into military service, but this is one of the factors that led to the American Revolution. The thought of a child soldier is horrific, but the thought is juxtaposed against a beautiful uniform.
