  3. There are some parts of life that don't warrant being memorialized in a painting. I won't provide the list.

  4. I agree with Jack, but then again, it is provocative and that's ART! I sort of like the painting. most of all I appreciate that you post it here Gina, for us to see and ponder and discuss.

  5. Doubtless, the old woman is the laundress. She doesn't look too pleased.

    I thought the painting was kind of quaint, myself. Shit happens, man! :-)

  8. I find it nice to see that men occasionally got involved in what was traditionally seen as the woman's job, even in the 17th. Century!

  9. I wonder what was the inspiration for this painting? :)
    I think she's yelling "Hold your breath!"

  10. "So not only hot dogs and soda, then popcorn, then ice cream....Seriously!"

  11. Francis - I thought the same thing. There are some parenting tasks that even men in the 17th century couldn't ignore. :-)

    Yogi - hahaha! Oh, too much fair food! :-D
