Oil on canvas. 24x30 inch.

When I first started to paint this image it was all about my
fascination with umbrellas.   I love umbrellas.  Umbrellas
are like rays of sunshine at times when sunshine is absent.
 Through stages of painting it became apparent that this
painting was about something else.  The anticipation and
joy are written all over this girl's face.  She was waiting up
for someone and someone has arrived.  But who?

Painting Notes: When I first started to paint this image it
was all about my fascination with umbrellas.  Umbrellas
are like rays of sunshine at times when sunshine is
absent.  Through stages of painting I called it "Girl with
Umbrella" or "Girl with Parasol" but it eventually became
apparent that this painting was about something else.  
The anticipation and joy are written all over this girl's face.  
She was waiting up for someone and someone has
arrived.  But who?
