Sheltered - 2019, July

I’ve started on a new body of work, and am enjoying stretching myself a bit with a few new elements however, I’m still so drawn to using images with umbrellas. 

The significance for me perhaps is that an umbrella allows one to be in and among the usual hustle and bustle of things going on, but keeps us sheltered, safe and shielded from the onslaught of rain, from the glare of the sun and from all that’s about. 

Umbrellas seem also to be as wings that like Mary Poppins, could float us off to somewhere else. 

Perhaps the August winds that are, will do just that, transcending me to a new space. I hope so.
