War Child

Painted from a B&W photo of the Nigerian Civil War. I don't know who owns the photograph. I searched but could not find information about the owner or photographer. I hope they would be ok with me painting it. To me this is a timeless image perfectly portraying the essence of war. The soldier appears to be too ashamed and devastated to look up at the camera. Oil on 40 x 30 inch canvas.
