Today marks the 121st year since the birth of Marc Chagall, painter and stained glass artist.
"All colors are the friends of their neighbors and the lovers of their opposites."
I personally own a print of this piece, "Birthday". Jake framed it for me for my birthday one year, after I had found the print at a garage sale for a few dollars. Yes, a garage sale!

I also like the mosaic in downtown Chicago.
La Mariée, 1950
My favorite Chagall painting is La Mariée. I'd love to receive a nice framed print of this work whenever I get married.
"Only love interests me, and I am only in contact with things I love."
