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.

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.
