I used to love these kinds of paintings in college. I had a whole wall of them my sophmore year. I loved the idleness. Now, the images fill me with horror. What do they do all day? How can they cope without an internet connection?

That is beautiful...maybe they're taking a break from their tatting?

Maybe having just thrown a water balloon over the edge they are waiting for it to hit. If the painter waited just a few more seconds to paint this picture he might of caught a more hilarious pose.
