I had this postcard (top) of Marc Chagall’s “Homage to Gogol”, which I used as an idea for a birthday card for Spencer. Chagall’s art has a strange, dreamlike quality to it, often with floating, sinuous figures. How did he come up with this stuff? Anyway, I thought I’d try my own version of it. He used gouache and pencil on paper. Mine is collage and watercolor, pencil and pen on paper. This was a fun little project and wacky enough to suit Spence. He says that’s just what he looks like walking to classes.
Your version is WAY better than the original! What a lucky son you have. And I love the bird just riding along. This is definitely one of my favorites!
Thanks Mary Jane, I’m happy with this one. Looks like an ad for the Ministry of Silly Walks.
Jodi, this is so cool. What a lucky guy to have such a talented mom. What a special card.
Thanks, Marylou. I feel lucky too.
Just love it. How clever!
