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.

I'm so glad y'all are going, Beth; travel safely and enjoy every moment!

Though I'm a good 5 hours south of you, I too am tiring of the cold and the ice and the wintery palette. Just looking at the colors of your paints brightens my day.

Blessings to y'all in your journey.

Have a great time--I'm absolutely mad for spring and color here, and of course snow is in the forecast for the evening. In my past 15 years here, this is the worst winter for falls and slippages, the worst for snow fever. Wish I could climb in your paintbox (color!) and come along.


I cannot even begin to imagine living in any of these cold blizzard places. I've never been to Mexico City but would love to check it out one of these days and it sounds like a wonderful place to go for sunshine and warmth.

John Singer Sargent was a master when it came to color that's for sure.

Hope that you and yours have a wonderful break. Don't hurry back, just have a good, refreshing break.

Have a wonderful time and enjoy the sun, the colors, the breezes.... :)

Have a great time. Can't wait to see what you do with the white gouache!

Bon voyage Beth, have a lovely sunny time. I love water colour palette test cards, as much as the finished paintings I sometimes think.

Go easy on the white gouache, Beth!:)
Have a lovely, restful trip.

Fond wishes for profound relaxation and glorious colour!

Hope that you have a colorful, inspiring trip. Here in BC we are longing for spring, too. Or at least sun!

And next year why not get grippers for winter boots? 10 seconds to put on and take off, and you get more confident strides, no slips and falls.
