Thanks so much for joining!

First of all I would like to thank @ juliakponsford and his excellent jury @vachemorte and new sponsor @curie!.I introduce you to the Goddess of Mayan mythology Ixchel, she was the Mayan goddess of the moon, of love, of gestation, of medicine and of textile works. in hieroglyphics her name appears as Chak Chel, which means "big rainbow".
I hope you like this work that I do with special affection, since this goddess represents the origin of life for the Latin peoples.
The technique used is pencil , coloured pencil and watercolour
A thousand blessings to all

I loooove your contest. It always encourages me to try out new techniques. First time I used modelling clay ( I thought I am to clumsy to make a sculpture, because last time in school, I was so bad at it) Now I am in love. I hope I can get some real clay and work with it. So thank youuuuu and I hope you are well (by the way, your music is super, but I am not so good at commenting right now, because I have so often problems with my head)

No you werent late you made it!!!! Thanks

I would love to participate only that time I have committed to other activities, however I try!

Help us, Gods of Time!
