At The Ready
A yellow hard hat signifies a captain’s headgear in a local department. The eagle’s head and number emblazoned at the front signify the courage and the hierarchy of the firefighter wearing this hat.The luminescent reflectors and flashlight handle add an eerie contrasting hue to the study.
Sitting atop a rack with gloves, an ID, and full gear for rapid dressing at an alarm, the number 4 hat shows a deserved rank for a firefighter’s many years of skilled service.The principal form in the piece, in yellow and negative space white, are supported by mostly cool and darker colors, with accents of bright hues in the reds and lime greens. The original work is now on show at the Artist Framer Gallery in Cranford, NJ, and is available.
