Soft pastels/pastel pencils on Canson Mi Tientes pastel paper. 8x10. I dont' do many floral works but I wanted to do this one from a pot of orange blooms that I saw sitting on a post on a visit to the Dallas Arboretum last spring. They sure were lovely!

It is very cold here today with a snow/ice storm on the way so this brings me hope...LOL

Beautifully done Mary and I would love to see this and smell the sweet scent of the orange blossoms. 

Excellent work as always .

This is a gorgeous piece. The orange and green work so well. I would love to have this hanging in my collection.
