A Kitchen Aroma in Cassis, abstract painting by Polly Castor A Kitchen Aroma in Cassis (pastel) by Polly Castor

Back from a bunch of travels and starting to synthesize all I’ve seen. Interesting that the impression to emerge first as an abstract painting is the kitchen aromas I enjoyed in the back alleys of Cassis. I have a whole sound series of paintings, but this is the first smell I’ve tried to paint.

This painting is 20″x26″ and done in thick pastel. You can see the whole work above and close up details of it below.

Do you get a sense of being there and smelling that?









I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.
