Cholla, Too - Pastel Painting Donation

I painted last night for a charity auction. 

Message I received:
For those of you have already offered to donate something for the silent auction please fill out this form and bring it with you when you drop off to Baxters by Thursday between 4 - 9 pm or drop off anytime at Independence Title to Tina Fucile.  Thank you in advance for helping with Terri Knop's medical expenses, you probably know but she has cancer on the bottom of her skull and on her spine.  Hope you can come Friday night also.  If you want to donate money just make check out to Terri Knop and also drop off at Baxters.
 I didn't post the PDF but if you need the form I can send it to you.

Hope to see you there.  You can bid on my painting or another auction item.

Cholla, Too
Pastel, 7 x 5 inches on Pastelbord
Donation will be framed in dark wood and sitting on an easel, but will have hangers on it.
Value $145.00, bidding will start at $75.00

The painting took a little over an hour to paint.  For that reason, I'm including it on Scavenger Hunt 473 as a sketch for Number 9, complicated  (Cheating a little as it was not sketched from life.  It was taken from a previous painting which was from life.  Smiling.).

I am host for the new Scavenger Hunt 474, come on over and sketch with us:

Cholla is a fun painting. Someone will be happy to get that at the auction.
