Painting: Oil on Wood.
When I created this painting in 2006, war in the Middle East had already caused considerable misery for the people throughout the region, but I wanted my artwork to draw attention to the suffering of the children. Today, as war spirals out of control in Syria, Iraq, Libya, and beyond, the plight of Middle Eastern children has become even more untenable and life threatening. As war and terror intensifies and spreads… will every youngster be transformed into a war child?
