There is something utterly magical about bubbles. As a kid I absolutely loved blowing through that little plastic wand and watching the bubbles appear. They were so delicate and made of such a thin layer of swirling colors.

Don’t know how to explain it but It was a totally emotional experience. So glad that you and Phillipe finally able to visit the museum.
Wonderful impression of the Moulin Rouge! I especially love the colors. I don’t get the selfie craze at all – when I’m enjoying something, the last thing I’m thinking about is putting myself in the picture. So sad people aren’t looking at the paintings when in the museum. Photos of the paintings are easily available online.
This work is so wonderful. Please don’t tell me it only took 15 minutes! The details! Your trip is making me want to travel just so I can sketch different places. I tried to do it on our last family day trip. My son was taking photographs (with a “real” camera) and I was trying my hardest to sketch something from each spot. Nothing fancy, but pages filled with lots of memories. I love travel journals. 🙂
