This picture expresses the issue of children around the world, who are becoming solider at a very young age. These children as essentially trapped with in their violence. In my painting The child's face encased in the outline of a red gun expresses this idea.

I like the fact that you have shed light on a sore subject. The look in this child's eyes just grabs me.

I really like this.  It gets out the message and supports your views.  I've been deeply involved in human trafficking and the likes lately and this piece really inspires me.

A very meaningful painting, i admire your idea! I agree, it's wrong to push a child to war.
