Garden at Capron Park pastel

Garden at Capron Park 10" x 8" pastel
Today felt like a good day to get back into some pastel work, so I cleaned up the studio a bit (it currently looks like a frame shop exploded in here) and busted out the pastel tray. I want to create more local pieces, so I looked through my Attleboro photos and decided on this composition.   

Detail of pastel
For those of you who haven't been to Capron Park, this is the Edward L Anderson Rose Garden. The garden has a beautiful design of concentric circular beds and rose covered arbors. This part of the park is especially peaceful to walk through, and I hope I captured that in the pastel. I'll be framing this piece tomorrow to bring to the Expo with me, where I hope some Attleboro residents will recognize the scene.
