    @jojabarker I love the second illustration concept. The idea and the framing are perfect.

    For the first, I think you’re going for a collage of all the time periods. I think that could work, but I wouldn’t worry about hitting every single one, especially if that creates more work.

    If it’s easier for you, you could focus on a single scene, one of the time period rooms that you want to draw, or something with the locket?

    If the ambiguity of the story is still bothering you, a locket with the son in military uniform, for example, with “In Memoriam” could answer that question without tying you to a specific date or time period.

    I do like the collage idea too, if you’d rather go with that.
