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 mind is so strange in what it chooses to bring together--this made me think of Joyce's "Araby," though it has a happier, wiser ending.

The colors are lovely, Beth. I love St-Armand various paper products. I have had a very long sketchbook (18 inches I think) in my arsenal for some time. I use it with charcoal, but I tend to hoard these papers. I will get them out and place them in the open where I can remember to experiment with them. I love toned backgrounds with gouache, but I agree that their paper is very soft and even gouache is soaked up in a second.
