Interview With Me at Text Ladies


"I, Pamela, am one of the luckiest girls in town! I have had the distinct pleasure of interviewing Kathy Ostman-Magnusen, a magnificent artist and poet. Kathy has worked in a variety of styles in many mediums. Her work can be wildly passionate, mystical, serene and all the shades of emotion in-between. Kathy's work focuses primarily on women; their lives, dreams, fears and desires. Her use of bold color and exquisite line clearly expresses the passion, strength and spirituality in women. Kathy's interest in the mystical world is evident in her paintings of fairies, angels and mermaids. Kathy's poetry is like magic and just as open and honest as her paintings. I hope you'll take a few moments to read some of her poems by clicking on the links at the bottom of this post. Without further ado, let's move on to the interview..."

"Pencil Drawings of Dragons"

I take away smiles from all the dragons.
Pencil drawings on paper
stories told
dragons made to know of my conquering ways.

I am the master of my own shadow.

Ahh it all does please me so
my stencils on the moon.
I sit atop it now
inside the moons glow
reviewing all my former postings
still silent
yet smiling
as a ship sets sail
being led by a pegasus
to the Milky Way.

Fantasy fairies of art
a meeting of the goddess
warrior women
legends of mermaids lore
they meet me at oceans door.

I laugh and leave them chocolate
lest they fade away.

Art deco
art stencils
how do I paste fantasy fairies
securely on the moon?

I melted my dragon
erased his confidence
right when I needed him most!

Back to my easel and pencil box
I suppose
dragons can be drawn again
smiles reassured.

Drawing fire from his breath
mermaid art
warrior women conquer all.

I do not resent my dragon
I draw him freely
and yet
I make sure he understands my power.

I am a warrior
I hold my own pencil
my watercolors at hand
my oils
I draw when and whatever pleases me.

I take my graphite
draw a dragon, a fairy, a ghost of me.

I pick up all the stencils of my mind
art deco I have planned
I remind myself of my own worth.

I do not need to fit in an envelope
I would not travel well anyway.

Art deco
art stencils of the mind
I paste my heart on the Milky Way.

I will steady the ladder
hold it safely
for you
my darling pegasus
to see the view.

My glass is held high
I filled it to the brim with dreams
I toast the ghost of a dragons past
no matter the fire
or drama he roars forth.

I am a warrior
a woman
a goddess
dreams rest very safely in my heart.
