This dry pastel painting only exists in my mind and on this photo. 

The original painting is gone and will never come back.

Sounds more dramatic than it is.

I bought dry pastel crayons and I did this painting as a test.

Then I tried to use fix spray to get the colors in the painting stay on the paper and not dust away or move around when someone touching the painting. Dry pastels are tricky that way. You have to fixate them.

That spraying thing didn’t work out well. I did it wrong and destroyed the painting. So I threw it away. But I took the photo before my fixation tryouts.

I have done some more dry pastel paintings and now I try to fix spray them very carefully.
