She’s an artist, a dirt worshiper, a professional magpie and a story painter. The she I speak of is Caitlynn Abdow. One of her drawings inspired my poem, “Heart and Guts Make the Blooms Grow Brighter”. When she offered me the piece, I squealed like a blooming lunatic! Then, after breathing out some of my greed, I decided that the drawing would make a perfect Dark Poetry for the Cruellest Month giveaway. Don’t you think so, my Wicked Luvs?
“Tulip Girls”, by Caitlynn Abdow
Caitlynn’s artwork tells stories of mythical surrealism dancing with motifs that make life rich and real. If you visit her cyber-home, and look at pieces like “Samhain”, “Yule” and “Gemini”, you’ll probably feel what I mean. Read her Accumulative Realists Collective statement for more.
