Homage to Chagall

scan0220I 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.

  1. 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!
