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.

Deux morceaux en forme de poire. (Okay, trois if you're Satie.)

Both watercolours are wonderful! For me, the second one has a bit of a 1930s feel.

Really love these - full of life - thanks for sharing the pair ;)

I should have you meet Yolanda some time when you're in Cooperstown. She has been on a mad watercolor kick, tough she also works in a lot of other media. And I guess she popped into my head because one of her pieces has pears in a cylindrical glass vase...

Now you need 11 more to make 13 Ways of Looking at a Pear.

@ Andrea Murphy: My thoughts too. That very evening I had remarked to Beth that her work has a timeless quality to it.

Delicious!!
And thank you for talking a bit about process and motivation and materials. . .

I like both versions, and they are very different from each other.
