The paintings below are evidence that bubble blowing has a universal human appeal and has stood the test of time. “Bubble blowers are among the oldest and most popular of children’s toys. Even when families had no money for toys, they could find a wire to twist into a circle and some soap for blowing bubbles.” (via bubble bowers.com)

“For the sheer joy it creates, blowing bubble is a  great way to spend time with your little one.” But did you know… Researchers have also found a connection between bubble blowing and language development in young children. So you can turn your bubble time into a skill-building session if you want. via baby parenting.about.com

Artist’s Personal Note: “Blowing bubbles is something I enjoyed as a child and so I wanted to share that joy with my son. I enjoy integrating bubble play in the playground or the pool. It is so important though to be sure you are doing it in a safe environment where there’s enough room for your child to chase the bubbles. When they’re little, children like to try to catch and pop bubbles.” 

The Art Bubble – Painting Of Art Auction Sotheby’s
Oil Painting by Gerard Boersma
via the artist’s blog
Artist’s Personal Note:“On the painting you see a contemporary art auction at the famous auction house Sotheby’s in New York. Record prices are being paid for contemporary art everywhere and some people say this is a bubble about to burst if it hasn’t already. On my painting you see this bubble quite literally, the auctioned painting is one of a young girl blowing bubbles. Then again, the painting is well executed, so why shouldn’t it fetch a high price? “
