Day 20 - 30 in 30 Days - Umbrellas

5"X7" watercolor on Arches paper
  Ahhh! Rain at the retreat! And we had to be out in it several times.
There were umbrellas everywhere! All, colors, all sizes, all different!
I thought about the umbrellas and the ladies that were at the 
retreat. Some were closed up tight, some were pretty
complicated to open, but once opened were beautiful.
Some were small and had room for only one under the canopy, 
some had room for two,and some room for 4 or 5!
Some were dark, some were colorful, 
and some had bright happy designs. 
Some were wide open, curved top to the sky, protecting those 
who sought shelter beneath. But, at the end of the day my
favorite one and the one that almost shouted to me 
was the bright blue one with it's handle toward the sky, 
with raindrops gathering inside the umbrella. 
The ribs looked like hands lifted in praise to me. 
By the end of our 72 hour retreat,
most of us looked like that umbrella, our hearts filled
with His love and our hearts and hands lifted in praise. 

This is Day 20 of 30 Paintings in 30 Days ($30.00)

I will bless the Lord at all times: 
His praise shall continually be in my mouth. Psalm 34:1
