This fine art counted cross stitch pattern entitled Boy Blowing Soap Bubbles designed from a painting by Karel Dujardin shows a young boy balancing on a large bubble out in the ocean while he playfully takes joy in blowing bubbles which is a timeless favorite pastime many children throughout history and even now still enjoy. The scene represents an allegory on the transitory state and brevity of life which is interpreted to mean that your life as a child is a transition phase into adulthood and can go by really fast, so enjoy the times you have as a child because those times will be missed when you enter adulthood. This is a lovely very whimsical creation by the artist and one that I find fascinating. To be honest, this is a difficult project to stitch due to the confetti stitching, but because of this, the final effect is going to look amazing, so if you’re up for the challenge, this is a good one to stitch! Only full cross stitches are used in our patterns. No blended colors are used. We only use an abundance of solid colors as it produces a more realistic effect.
