POSTCARDS FROM CASCADE

“It’s a stunning painting, in person,” Jacob said. “It glows. Beatrice glows. I couldn’t take my eyes off it.”

Was he flirting or simply making a statement? Something was happening and she wasn’t sure it was real.

–From CASCADE

The characters are talking about Beata Beatrix, by Dante Rossetti (1870), which Jacob has seen in London. The TATE owns it still.

    I just finished Cascade last week and loved it so very much. I love how Dez “revises” this painting as a message to Jacob. One of the best parts of the novel, for me, was the way you decribed their paintings and the drive to create.

      Thank you so much, Lisa ! I loved that part, too. I’ve realized that the characters in pretty much everything I write are people who are driven to create/express.
