Artist's Comments: In 1992, I was struck by the tragedy of children starving in Somalia, while there are fields of wheat across our country and plenty of food on earth to feed our planet. I painted a series of paintings to draw attention to this tragedy. The paintings were used at a fund raiser at UBC's Lutheran Centre to help draw attention to the cause. I think that some of these are some of my best paintings - perhaps because of the depth of emotion that felt for this issue. Sadly, they are timely again.

This painting is a study for the larger mural, Starving Children; Field of Wheat. It depects a starving child being weighed.
