My husband saved me from an umbrella just like this one at the beach last weekend.  It had gotten a little windy and someone's umbrella had sprung loose, but for some reason the pointy end (not the umbrella part) was headed full speed at the back of my neck.  Luckily my husband is part jedi and caught it just inches before it hit me.  Thanks love :)

I wasn't sure how this one would turn out, but I really like the orange and blue colors together.  I didn't pick a new years resolution, but I think I would like to be a little more daring in my painting.
