Colors of Fall Pastel Painting

I have loved gourds and pumpkins since I was a kid. I was always fascinated with all of the colors and shapes of the gourds and you don't get a more beautiful orange than you find in the small pumpkins. This is a 9x12 pastel painting. This is the first still life painting I have done in pastel. I have done animals and portraits before in pastel, but I use a very different paper that uses a different approach. I wasn't sure I could pull this off, but I was pleased with the results. What do you think?
