Painting: We Forgot the Umbrella under the Storm

I was looking at some of the pictures we took the weekend at the beach. We had lots of fun, but there were a few storms that surprised us, one of which, we forgot the umbrella at the beach. That is why I decided to title this painting just that.

I placed below my interpretation of the photo. I wanted to focus all my attention in the umbrella, that is why I did not include anything else. Besides, the painting is just 8 x 10 in, so I felt it would look clutter.
