The siren

The siren

A little bit of whimsy. I used to live behind the Tawa volunteer fire department and their call-out siren (ex air raid siren) stood right behind by backyard fence, and scared the living day lights out of me whenever it went off. I was chatting with one of the firemen one day about it and how one feels like the figure in The Scream when standing beneath it, hence the inspiration for the painting.
