It Looks Like Rain

This is for the Umbrella challenge at Take a Word.

I took my black umbrella outside to photograph it, but between the crazy wind and the fact that it was partially broken anyhow, I realized I had to make one from scratch. I did so in my trusty old Macromedia Freehand. I should be using Illustrator, but I'm faster in Freehand. The clouds, and scenery are from my photos. The moon is a brush I created, and the rain drops are recycled from a photo I took of a clear marble. Yes, that's my dainty little hand.


  1. What a fantastic art piece Deborah, love your landscape with flying umbrellas, thanks for sweet comment on my blog.

  2. Deborah,this is one of your very best! I don't know what macromedia freehand is or any of that. I am wondering if I should ask for a Wacom pen/pad thingie for my birthday. If you have the time to give me advice, please e-mail me at

  3. Such outstanding art, as always. If you don't have an umbrella, make a new one by drawing it, I like it!
