EDM 217 - Umbrella


This is as close as I'm getting to an umbrella these days. In my part of the world, we still need long underwear and mittens. Winter is refusing to relinquish it's grip on us. It came in November and by now has long outstayed it's welcome. I'm regretting not having booked a tropical vacation this year, no matter what the economy! Instead I'm dreaming of margaritas on the patio while gazing at snowbanks.
These funky plastic cocktail glasses really did have margaritas in them in anticipation of the first trip to Mexico, with the fancy matching straws and speckled umbrellas. The other colors were turquoise and lime green - very fun and festive.

I'm off to stay with my mom for the next 4 days, where I hope to do lots of sketching (and relaxing). Here's hoping spring has sprung in your part of the world.

I was curious about your EDM posting for your "favourite' umbrella and had to click through to look. A wonderful interpretation and great fun. Cheers !

I sure like this---how you chose it and tackled it---

Enjoyed your drawing. Spring has sprung with leaves popping but it still is trying to go back to winter at times here in northern Arizona. Enjoy being with your mom.

Although spring is finally arriving here in New England (just barely), I totally understand your dreams of frosty drinks with umbrellas and the warm weather to match! Great drawing!

have to admit, that is one of my favorite umbrellas too ;-)

Lynn,

Thanks for your visit to my blog and your wonderful encouragement.

I, too, am looking forward to a margarita (I am going to have to invest in some of those umbrellas) when our snow is gone and the temps warm up.
