The Girl with the Blue Umbrella

it is 4:30 in the morning...i couldn't sleep, so i got up at 3:00...
i didn't paint this collage piece, i painted in miz katie's collaborative journal...
which i shall not divulge here...she's gotta have at least one surprise in her book, eh?
and so here is the Blue Umbrella..
it reads:
they said: "there is no rain"...
she said: "i know"
they asked: "then why do you carry that umbrella?"
she said: "i'm always ready to fly!"
as she wandered off...
"hmm...they said nothing about my skirt"...
you can zoom in for a closer view


  1. She's adorable and I love that quote that you put with it.Have a great weekend.

  2. This is wonderful! I love the quote, too.

  3. I love her and I think she must be outside at our house. We have had grey and rain for the past month I think. :( Maybe if I paint a giant sun and flowers today it will work. :)

  4. This made me smile, I thought of the big purse I carry at times and think that the size of the purse has nothing to do with an amount of money.

    I am always painting pictures that have to do with rain at least painting them in my head. I call them rain Pleas. For me your beautiful painting is a rain plea.

    I also know about not being able to sleep. Not last night tho.
    I was exhausted from an art fair and garage saleing.

  5. i will
    say something
    about her skirt...
    that it is wise
    & velvet feather blue
    & ready for take-off
    & for standing on the ground too
    when she needs to.
    all so beautiful. x

  6. Love it and the quote is perfect :D --have a great weekend!

  7. thank you sweet buffy and mi amiga, jr...i am so grateful for your support! and amy, i think i left you a note already about the grey skies here, ergo this painting. the sun came out today, entirely out and warm and ahhhhh...yeah, good for the body and psyche! xo
