Rainbow Umbrella

The question is not what you look at, but what you SEE.

Artist Statement

When my daughter was four years old, she had an umbrella that she loved. In fact, she said that the umbrella was her friend, and took him with her all the time. In the sunniest days her friend protected her from the sun. The rainy days… she said that her friend sang amazing songs. I have always thought that our differences could be like my daughter’s rainbow umbrella and we can hear a new amazing song, if we pay attention, just like my little girl!
