Yes ,you'll have guessed by now,
the theme is
UMBRELLA / PARASOL
(I've always liked it's shape)
We all have them , loose them,
throw them away after being caught by a heavy gust or can't find them when needed.
The umbrella descended from the parasol which
has been used since ancient times.(Greece, China, Egypt and Assyria)
From the Renaissance on the parasol became a real fashion accessory in the west
and even was a status symbol .
So that now poorly treated object has quite a history.
One for the rain .
One for the sun.
Which shall it be?
The choice is yours.
May i invite you to the drawing challenge of next weekend,
please leave me a comment if you want to join in.
You are all very welcome!
