Umbrellas


I've always loved old pictures with parasols. These are from my collection and most can be found in my Saturday Image Bonus posts. This 8x10 project is for the Layers of Color challenge Umbrellas. The quote is The parasol is the umbrella's daughter, by Emily Dickinson
The parasol is the umbrella's daughter,And associates with a fanWhile her father abuts the tempest And abridges the rain.The former assists a siren In her serene display;But her father is borne and honored, And borrowed to this day.

Oh how wonderful, Cora! It's like a Parasol Parade!! I really enjoyed learning more about umbrellas and parasols when I looked it up during my creating. My eldest daughter has an old lace parasol that Grandma gave her to treasure. It's very romantic, like your lovely artwork! I'm so glad you joined us!
