    For a moment there, I thought the kid was leaning out the window to hurl….and then I thought, nah, nobody’d paint that…

    Enlargement of this small (click to enlarge) painting available from here. Aspects of the painting also discussed here, on page 10 here, and here (click a free lesson in painting technique in the Special Topics box below the VanMeer painting shown there). So far, 2 works by this artist have appeared in Mr. Melcher’s blog.

    Thanks, Mabrndt, There is a whole lot of information in there. I know many adults who enjoy making soap bubbles (it does take us back to more innocent times) I have usually just done it with my grandkids in recent times, although I’ve been to celebrations where bubble wands were passed to the crowd. Nice to learn about using the gold leaf that way, too.

    P.S. The dark background (click blog image) really enhances the painting, for me anyway. I wish I had done that before writing my earlier comment. I really miss the Edit button.

    If you’re interested in drawing bubbles, this may be helpful (I’m no artist).

    First- really funny. Second- I want to see this painting up close in a museum just to see if the artist really painted what looks like mildew on all the foliage.

    Yes – thank you for all the information. Very interesting. Sometimes I think I learn more from reading the comics than anywhere else. I do enjoy the humor of the comic too.
