The inspiration for Compton Boy is twofold, the honeysuckle signifying happiness, featured by William Morris in his painting Compton, and the painting by the artist’s two-year-old son entitled More Gold Mummy. Personal memories of games and adventures in front of a house with a honeysuckle covered porch form a bridge between William Morris and childhood.
