A Violin Playing Goat [SIA Post]

Style Imitating Art

I’m sure many of my U.S. readers have today off for Memorial Day are spending it doing something other than reading blogs. But, for those of you who are here, it’s time to reveal this week’s Style Imitating Art choice!


This photo of “[ C ] Marc Chagall – Coq Rouge dans la Nuit (1944)” by cea + is licensed under CC BY 2.0

This week it was Jen’s turn to pick and she chose this because, as she said, she has a soft spot for Marc Chagall’s work. And then there was something about needing a violin-playing goat to find happiness. I’ve never seen Notting Hill so I didn’t get the reference. Please fill me in! Now I’m curious!

This painting has all the colors of the rainbow in it. So, even if you’re not feeling the blue, you can wear purple or yellow or red or even green. Or a little bit of everything. Or show us what you wore to your Memorial Day celebrations! I bet they’ll work just fine, too.

Submissions are due to librarianforlifestyle@gmail.com on Monday June 5th by 10 p.m. Pacific Standard Time. She’ll post the round-up on June 6th.

    I have today off for Memorial Day (yay!) but I’m still here, checking out the latest buzz on my friends’ blogs because it is important to me. 🙂
    No worries, Erin!

    This looks to be a nice painting chosen by Jen. I’ve never heard of this artist before. There are so many different ways to go about in interpreting this, which I can appreciate, as it allows for a lot of freedom. I hope that I will be able to participate and come up with something great!

    Enjoy your Memorial Day, Erin!
