Les Petites Fluers II
11 x 14
Pastel on Pastelbord

I did not paint this piece on my easel but rather I laid it flat on my work table so I was looking down on it. Because of this the pastel dust instead of falling down was brushed to the sides forming tailings. I then used fixative ( actually it was Aqua Net hair spray which I have used for close to 20 years now without a problem) to keep these tailings in place.  Just thought you might be interested. What do you think?


  1. Anita, these abstractions with the cake just fantastic and a great sense and command of color and form of expression.
    An interesting way into figuration.
