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 hope you'll keep up the blog.

What a beautiful drawing. I love the generous, fluid lines and warm, restricted palate - looks like it came out of silence.

Thank you and don't worry, Elizabeth! I will.

Thanks, Jean. This drawing was bit of a breakthrough and therefore I'm especially glad to know you like it.

Oh dear, I meant palette (yes, I do proofreading). I'm sure your palate is never restricted :-)

I hope you keep up the blog, too; your remarks stay with me and I deeply enjoy seeing your work. I've become more careful about online time too. It does not feel like living; it's some other kind of semi-existence.
