Blue and White



Most everyone likes blue and white, including me. I am posting, here,
my favorite all time blue and white painting. This looks 
very blue and white shabby chic. What do you think?
This is by artist, Raoul Dufy. He was my mother's
favorite artist.A print of his famous Paris painting hangs 
in the background of Helen Hunt's apartment 
in the movie, "As Good As It Gets".

This is the Dufy print that is hanging in the background in a couple
of shots in the movie "As Good As It Gets".

Raoul Dufy did this, too.



This is my contribution to blue and white. This is a photograph that I took and digitally
 enhanced. I know it is a lot of gall posting this on the same page as Raoul Dufy.

WOW. I wonder why your new post did not appear in my email this morning!

The blues are calling us, aren't they my dear? These aquas are my favorite, and it blows my mind how artists can get their "message" out in such few strokes. I guess it is similar in a good writer/poet who uses the right words rather than MANY, heavy words. So lovely. I will be IN CALIFORNIA IN MARCH! I am aiming to get out to Montana St!

Thank you for visiting my dear. Anita

Guess what, I saw Dufy's exhibition two years ago in Paris! I like his style, too.
