Annabel Lee by dustfae Annabel Lee by dustfae
" For the moon never beams without bringing me dreams
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee" - Poe

I started a small series of paintings based on the poem "Annabel Lee" by Edgar Allen Poe

go read it!

I didn't have a clue what category to put it in, I don't think macabre and horror is quite appropriate but it is definitely supposed to be dark.

Acrylic on Canvas

One of my two favourite Poe poems, Kamille!  A lovely painting.  I'm currently writing a short article about Poe on DA for the Edgar Allan Poe Review, a scholarly journal (I teach a university course on Poe and have written two books on him).  I'm going to mention some of your Poe jewelry in my paragraph on Poe-inspired jewelry.  Hugs from Toronto.  Hug

Great work with the Acrylics! I really enjoy your style. This piece really captures what I see when I go back and visit Annabel Lee. You have a very unique style and are very creative to capture a a dark/elegant feeling and put it on a board. Very nice!

Annabel Lee is one of my favorites from him ^^

I really like how you painted this, espically Annabel how you made her almost seem..wave like. How quickly she passed and if I remember correctly the setting was at a beach or some thing of the sort with waves and I remember him saying the angles were so jealous so they came and took her away.

I enjoy mostly the 'Oceanic' color scheme, it really works quite well with your interpretation of the poem... reminds me of the saltwater air, and I can even hear the sounds of the water upon the rocks...

I want to do more illustrations of this poem and you have inspired me very much with showing me east of the son west of the moon and your Norse myths book. I would really like yto get my hands on some Swedish fairytales
