This red parasol was a special gift to musician/visual artist Jan Schmidt from her late father.
“My dad was not a shopper but had a purposeful intent on seeking out the perfect umbrella for me as a gift while I was studying Creative Writing and Theater Arts in college. Without fail, whenever I take this vintage umbrella to the streets, I am stopped and told how wonderful it is! I love seeing how it has taken a new life of its own with the creativity of the photographers of Creating Your Vision photography workshop hosted by David Lee Black!"
