Under the Same Sun

16" x 20", oil on canvas, 2014

Here in Prince Edward County there weren't enough women to fill the spaces left by the men who went off to fight (more and more as the war progressed); many women from Toronto and nearby regions had to be brought in to help out.

A world away, but under the same sun, Canadian women and men took to the fields...

This is part of the section called The War at Home in my World War One painting project, To the Sound of Trumpets.
