Biographical portrait: A Shropshire lad

Old family photos have always inspired me because they tell their own stories. 

I was looking, amongst photos of my husband when young, to find one that would sum up what it was like to grow up in the country in a way that might remind others of a similar youth. 

A rather faded image of him, crossing a gate, spoke to me and it inspired this drawing, set among cornfields and encapsulates a carefree time of life when summer holidays lasted for ever and the horizon was full of possibility.
