Apologies to Marc Chagall

The piece is inspired by a 1915 painting titled "L’Aniversaire." It was a present to Chagall’s wife Bella as a thank you for a surprise birthday party she threw for him.
They were living in Paris at the time and were very poor, and for that reason the original painting was done on a piece of linoleum that Chagall found on the street. When Bella saw the painting she said “I feel we were going to fly out of the window of love." Her statement provided me with the inspiration to place a window on top of the piece.
