"Virgo is the sixth astrological sign in the Zodiac. It spans the 150-180th degree of the zodiac, between 152.75 and 180 degree of celestial longitude, which the Tropical zodiac the Sun transits this area on average between August 23 to September 22 each year.
The constellation of Virgo is representative of many identities, all related to maidens, purity and fertility.She was originally associated to Dike, also known as Justice, daughter of Zeus and Themis, who was once the Mistress of All-Divine Order and Law prior to the Olympians. Dike initially lived among mankind but withdrew when they no longer upheld justice.

In Greek mythology,similarly, Persephone, daughter of Zeus and Demeter, had been abducted and taken to the underworld by Hades. In revenge her mother ruined the harvests, the earth became infertile and the people were starving. Zeus was forced to issue a decree stating that Persephone should spend only a short time each year in the underworld, and when she was released Demeter permitted Nature to resume its natural course."

This is my second addition to the Zodiac Signs while the first one was Leo
In time i will complete them all!:excited:

How well you capture the essence of the virgin lights that begin today their yearly travel with the sun.  Her beautiful eyes disclose your eye for beauty (and I'm sure, your beautiful eyes as well).

this was kind of experimental since i hadnt use color pencils on canvas so far, but it turned out well. :)
in fact it was rewarding enough to have me wanting to try it again, water based paints with color pencils on canvas is a good combo apparently.:love:

Yes.  Definitely. I don't know much about traditional art media, but your work with this combination looks great.  Hope you will use it for other works (especially on the Zodiac Signs).

This is another beautiful piece you have created. I don't think I have seen any of your work that I don't like, or that I think is just okay. This is stunning. I love the color and the blending! I also am so impressed by your 1st work "Leo". I know I have said this before to you, but I think you have mastered your craft. If I saw your work hanging in a gallery (and I had the money) I would definitely want to purchase your lovely art!
