Pastel Shades

I simply love Audrey Kawasakis art. I love the way she paints and what she paints. I love the fact that she paints on wood, which gives her paintings immediately a kind of vintage attitude. Her paintings are innocent on the one hand but with a slight hint of erotism on the other. Also it reminds me of some Art Nouveau tableaus while her depictions are sometimes even surrealistic.

I picked out two paintings that have that twenties thing going on.

The first one reminds me of Marlene Dietrich (which makes it of course a bit more a thirties thing).
