i like the bold red and blue against the softer blue wash of the rain and his coat.

Here's this poor soaked to the skin fellow, and all of a sudden, out the blue, an arm with a big red, beautiful, dry inside umbrella. This is so funny and clever, I love this invention and your very cool way of rendering the idea!

Very nice! We do need an invention to help us have the umbrella when we need it though! I love umbrellas, and have a nice one from a trip to England, where it rains a LOT, but it's always where I'm NOT. Funny how that works.

tell me about it I brought and lost a nice strong beautiful umbrella in England.

thanks for your comment... i'm so pleased someone recognised that there was music in it!

i love this one.. funny how we just use our umbrella's , yet never think of the inventing that had to go into it...when ya think about it, its quite a complex bit of thought and enginering that went into the humble rain stopper.
all the best,
lea
