I majored in Art in college, that is what I got my degree in, well double major Art & Spanish. The Scream is one of my Favorite Paintings! Shows so much energy and emotion.

I have an image of The Scream saved as one of my Outlook signature images for work. The caption under it reads ‘Just another day in paradise...’ I use it a lot.

In high school we were taught that the figure is not just randomly screaming; in one version the background looks like an incoming tsunami is about to engulf the boardwalk and the people walking on it.

In another the background depicts a bright red sky which is not sunset but a huge aurora borealis or a high altiude dust cloud from the Krakatoa eruption reflecting sunlight.

Either case, our teacher said the man is depicted as thoroughly frightened by what he sees and fears imminent death.

Oh, I thought that it was an artist’s impression of the reaction to a pic of Ms Fluke.

Everybody likes this painting. It’s not technically done well, you can’t rate it up there with the better artists, but it is on the same par with a Van Gogh.

It’s beautiful.

I hope whoever buys it places it out there for the public to see, even if only occasionally.

I bought my brother a necktie with the image of The Scream on it many years ago. He said he liked wearing it at board meetings.
