Far From Home or Lost Childhood

32″ x 36″    oil/canvas

My thoughts as I painted: “The little boy is too young to be carrying a gun. He will miss his school chums. Where will they find food or rest?” All of us, in this rapidly changing world, sometimes feel far from home; disoriented by a changing culture, or difficult national issues and a world trying to adapt to what the 21st century has wrought. And all of us are on our life journey to find home, meaning and a faith that sustains. Some of us are just more refugeed than others.
