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 love the 4th photo!

beautiful!

did you paint any water colours?

Yes, I like the echinops!

And the first one has that green glass that looks just like watercolors, so no wonder you got that question!

Dave, thanks! I was stunned by the number of bees -- a good thing. The local honey is great there, too.

Hi Mouse...unfortunately not. It's too hard when you're visiting family and they want to see YOU, not your back, sitting over your drawing pad or watercolor paper!

Good point, Marly!
