This was I'd have to say

No sooner had they gone

From Rita: Very feminine energy with the number 3 representing all 3 of us. Looks like a Mayan face looking out in the upper right corner with an orb on his third eye. I see a faint angel/guide where the #3 indents.. Also a Mayan mask of the right side. He is in full ceremonial dress. 3 dots (the 3 of us) on the bottom with a footstep behind that. We are all taking a step but someone is behind us saying "Go into that uncharted territory. It's all right". I am so glad she did this because there is a message for all of us.
From Donna: I am truly honored! I look at this and feel a lyrical, dynamic female energy. Dancing, pulsing like the movement of blood in the umbilical. All the Mayan references Rita made reinforce my desire to live in Playa del Carmen. The way the light colour spoons into the deeper orange makes me feel like I am supported by the divine. The warmth generated by the yellow gives the piece a true radiance...the same radiance we all possess.
From Jane: Such wonderful descriptions. It's so interesting to hear how this intuitive art speaks to each person differently. I didn't even notice the "3", but now that you pointed it out it does make sense.
I saw the dark image as a snake and the lighter, cracked image behind it as the shedding of its skin - transforming. Snake is also a symbol of healing. When I looked up snake as totem I found references to Quetzalcoatl, the deity whose name means "feathered serpent". He was also patron of the arts and crafts. Some of the drawings of Quetzalcoatl look very similar to the Mayan-looking figure at the top of the canvas!
