While following along on the path of your creative process with the willow and the stream, I was reminded of Denise Levertov's book of poems titled The Stream and the Sapphire. I find your paintings and drawings to be consistently evocative. The black and white rendering and the watercolor rendering of the photograph are equally engaging emotionally. The black and white feels meditative. The color version celebratory. I'd love to see how this scene would speak in a third translation using pastel or oil or acrylic. Always a joy to see your drawings and paintings. Thank you!

Two wholly different moods emerge from the charcoal and the watercolour... zooming in changes the perspective.. and the mood!

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.
