Our good friend, John Welson, kindly shared the following siren images with us, and I include his original commentary: “In 1969/70 I painted this painting (in two different versions):
Whilst it acquired the title of, ‘Drama in the Paddock’ having just found an old photo of the work I see that on the rear of the photograph it had a different title, for back then I titled it, ‘The Time of the Mermaid’.
I revisited the theme a couple of times in later years.
I thought I would share this with you.
Warmest greetings to you all.
