"The Visitor"
PanPastels on AS Colourfix, approx 12-1/2 x 16-1/2"
This ended up being a bit more complicated painting than I thought when I began and, of course, there are many areas that I am critical of (because I always am). Just fell in love with the colors and the little ladybug. This is a piece from a July challenge on "Paint My Photo" in which the fabulous photo reference was provided by Sonia Mckinlay.

Hi Linda, I don't know what happened to my first post reply to you but it seems to have disappeared!
This is lovely and I like the green background and also the green you've repeated in the petals and the foliage at the back of the flower. The Ladybug is so cute too.

Impressive work on that stem! You really did a nice job of translating that fuzzy texture, the petals are also very well done.
Of coarse I love the lady bug, too :).
