  1. I love Chagall. I love his fluid grace, his whimsy, his bold use of color. Great image.

  2. Your family is just going to be up to your necks in rice and orange blossoms. How soon is all this going to take place?

    I'm sorry, but that goat, bowing away there, just got to me.

  4. Bobbie: thanks for the chuckle. That goat is funny. One of the things I like about Chagall. What could he have been thinking? I'm sure there are lots of interpretations. Something I shy away from, usually but now you've got my curiosity up!

    And about the weddings: SG1 next May, W.P.'s daughter in 2010 and W.P. and I ... we don't know yet. Probably after the big wedding in 2010 and we'll so up to our ears in weddings, we'll probably just elope! :-)

    Diva: I think that goat falls into the whimsy category but if you know more and can shed some light, please comment back.

    Sherry: I slightly recall that story...will have to google it. Picasso did some goat sculptures but they're not as cute as Chagall's goat.

    Wow...I'm some serious kinda art critic, aren't I? ;-)
