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 will continue, Beth. I enjoy these. (And want to give it a shot myself.)

I like these very much. There are beautiful lines and curves, the swoop of the railroad tracks, the overpass, the power lines. And I like the way the watercolor treatment brings a natural softness and beauty to scenes I would not ordinarily pause to think beautiful.

I think my favorite is the bushes with the tracks beyond, but there's a sense of clear light and calm in the factory parking lot that appeals, as well. I hope you're pleased with what you're doing!
