Artist's Description

Painting the SEIGE was fast and furious, I had watched for most of the day on television the footage was mesmerising and frustrating, to spend so much time holding the lives of the hostages in the balance, only to use extreme force to kill a demented man,with a rifle, many hours later,with what seemed like a hundred rounds. This action took the life of a young innocent women. I also watched the verdict of the inquest in which the police officers were exonerated, the fiasco was lain solely with the police hierarchy who at time were at a loss as how to proceed. i hope my painting expresses the tragedy of the day, and you are able to identify some of the story Of that tragic day.
