The boys who saw me painting made me really laugh with their funny comments:
"Warum malst Du das, das ist ja nur alles Müll? – Musst Du das malen?"
"Malst Du noch eine Sonne drauf?… Kannst ja auch noch einen Zeppelin draufmalen"
"Darf ich das?"


This week I was on vacation in Madrid. Most of the time I spent in the Prado and other excellent Museums.

100 points if you find out which artwork of the Prado those are!
