Postcard from the Mayan ruin of Copan/Honduras

I don't know how long this July postcard was waiting for me in my mailbox in Heidelberg. Yesterday I came back from vacation at the Baltic Sea and in Berlin. So I'm sorry to post it so late. (The card was postmarked on 20th July – I left for vacation on 14th August. So the card needed quite a long time.)
Charlene, thank you so much for this impressive historic image. You wrote: »... The painting is of hieroglyphic stairway at the Mayan ruin of Copan. It is currently under a protective tarpaulin, so it's tricky to paint – and impossible to photograph in its entirety..«

I think Charlene might possibly win the prize for the longest journey!

What a unique subject for a postcard! Well done Charlene for having a jolly good go at what sounds like a real challenge.

What a treat to receive this wonderfully painted card from Charlene's vacation.

Wow, Mayan hieroglyphics, we are getting postcards from some really exotic places - painting under a tarpaulin must be a first too!

Wonderful Mayan ruins Charlene! I agree with Cathy...our postcards just cover such interesting parts of the world, history, traditions, beauty..love it all.

I'm really enjoying Charlene's sketches of her recent travels - much better than looking at photos. She's showing us what she found important to her artist's eyes. And I like her way with watercolours.

Charlene, I'm starting to expect Indiana Jones to leap out of your beautiful, exotic cards. You'd never know this one was a challenge.
