Celebrating Life

23 Dec
Watercolor painting by Raoul Duffy

“Still Life” by Raoul Dufy


The holidays are time for relaxing with friends and family and this particular painting by Raoul Dufy seems to reflect that lighter side of life.  Dufy lived from 1877 until 1953 and his style developed over a long period of time.  The watercolor painting above, titled “Still Life” portrays the pleasures of alfresco dining on a summer day.  There is fruit, wine and crusty bread waiting on a pleasant outdoor patio for guests to arrive.  Dufy also painted boating scenes, carnivals, concerts and horse racing.  Let’s celebrate holiday times with joyful memories.
