Who was Cassandra?


  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

Clever, Beth. It's so hot here, I can't think of being creative. I haven't even been out in the garden. You have a marvelous sketch to show for staying inside.

Mind...work...slow.....Writing....hard.....

Thanks, Jan. I was so hot this afternoon I could barely move, and even tonight I can't make myself go the eight blocks to water the garden. The tomatoes will have to suffer until morning! Drawing is so absorbing I forgot how miserable I felt, though.

Hi Dave. I know the feeling. Take a cold bath or something?

Great coloured sketch. Beats me how you can do that and simultaneously watch the match. I thought I was a reasonable multi-tasker, but for me it would have been match or drawing. The simultaneous activity would have boded brain melt-down!

Thanks, Clive. To be scrupulously honest, I was much more concentrated on the sketch than the match!

I'm still not satisfied with this sketch technique but it's getting closer as I get used to using watercolor washes on the Moleskine-type sketchbook paper; they're instantly absorbed and you can't soften them at all. The main thing is that I'm enjoying the (re)new(ed) sensation of drawing my world.

Great title for a beautiful sketch.

I love your sketches, they have tons of personality.
