8x6" oil on canvas, SOLD
This painting was inspired by a hat I saw at an outdoor art festival. It was actually designed like an umbrella but meant to keep the sun off the wearer’s face. And I got to thinking about umbrellas and how unwieldy and somewhat dangerous they are, (“Be careful! You’ll put someone’s eye out!”). Not to mention that “bad luck” thing that happens if you open one in the house. So why not re-think the whole umbrella industry. I mean, who really needs an umbrella big enough to cover you and your Volkswagen?
