Getting Started in Watercolor
Interview with Sue Miller
by Jenny Heidewald
This an ACEO that I did for the October 2011 Sketchfest. Orpheus, the son of Calliope and Apollo, was the greatest poet and musician of the Greek Myths. The most famous tale involving him is the one where he loses his wife, Eurydice, to death. Grief stricken he goes to Hades and manages to charm the king of the dead to let him have his wife back. The only catch was that Orpheus must not look back at her as they traversed back to the world of the living. He looked back when he reached the surface, but, tragically, his wife was still in the underworld, and she sadly slipped back to Hades. Inconsolable, Orpheus shunned company. Eventually he was found and ripped apart by Dionysus' followers, the bacchantes. Still singing, his head floated to the island of Lesbos.
