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.

The arts all frolic in the Land of Synesthesia...

The arts all frolic in the Land of Synesthesia...

That's a really beautiful watercolour. But it's not about sound; it's about smell--as evidenced by the two noses on the left.

That is an incredibly evocative painting. At first I was taken with the bursting energy of the yellow, and then I saw the crowd of people in the upper third. And then.....fantastic!

I decided to play your topmost painting; cor, didn't my fingers get into a tangle, with no recognisable tune emerging. After the twentieth time, and shoving it up an octave, faint echoes resonated out of my past and I had to know, I had to know. On the one-thousand, seven-hundred and thirty-first go I had a mangled but just about serviceable version of the Waldstein. Seems you're marching in step with greatness.

All of these responses are pretty delightful!

I love the title of this piece! And how have you made those colours both vivid and muted? I suppose that mimics the disarray of memory itself!
