Sketching Steamboats with much ado: update

This sketch I have added is a definite re-do at some point in time. I sketched this but not so quickly, but it is still not very good sketch. The state rooms and the doors/ windows just seemed impossible to get correct. Certain patterns, images seem to trigger the dizziness, and unsteadiness, and the blurred vision I have at times since that event of nearly getting run over by a vehicle in June, 2011. This seems to be one of those sort. I worked at this sketch about 8 hr, over 2-3 days , stopping, starting several times. That is 2-3 times longer than it usually takes me to create sketches from "scratch" with hands-on tools of brushes, pencils, pens, which was very frustrating to me. But those state rooms/windows just seemed impossible to make uniform. Maybe next year I will re-do this sketch, after some more healing time for my concussed brain. Anyway, it was the majority of what I accomplished this week, so I am adding it here. I named this sketch, "The Steamboat Missou" and it is on 14x17 bristol board, and is acrylics.

If you read the history of Missouri you see that steamboats [via steam in generator turbines generated by the big paddle wheel] brought products, and shipped products from Missouri down the Mississippi to the gulf ports to the sea, and then on to other ports. Also, I think there is a steamboat still with another name that sails the waters of the Mississippi, and I hope to go on-board it some day. I love all manner of boats and ships and grew up in coastal state of Georgia, where the Atlantic Ocean approaches from Savannah downward to Cumberland Island and of course into Florida and up the coast also all the way to New England. But the beaches of it start about at Savannah, GA. I actually steered a Steamboat in Stone Mountain lake, years ago, though a miniature one compared to the ones that steam along the Mississippi. I think also that now, the "steamboats' are not run by the paddle wheel, which is for show, not to generate steam; but I am not 100% positive about that. I think I read that somewhere.

Also, when I was married the first time, we had a motor boat, ski boat with a walk-through tri-hull that had a 85 hp Mercury motor that ran like a scalded cat! It could pull two skiers easily and one at speeds that were breath-taking. I loved that boat! I could water ski then but can't now [because of much metal in one leg--risk of injury is great, and more injury to it would be catastrophic].

Anyway, I hope you like the sketch. All art, words, poems, medical lessons I create, sketch, paint, draw, write, compose in any medium, with any tool, on any surgface, whether or not I photograph it and whether or not I add it to any display of mine on the web, are copyrighted as intellectual properties.

Also, I logged back in for several reasons. One of those it to add the fact that my profile for this blog of mine is located at:

And also another profile for me showing on this blog at:

And also a third profile for this same blog for me at:


. And yet, the system tells me "to create a profile"! So, I don't really know what exactly what is going on with that. I do know that the prodeathers and the abominations groups have done every thing illegally they could think of to try to prevent me from logging into MY account that I have had for YEARS. Gloria Poole is the name I was BORN WITH [in the state of Georgia]. ! I resumed it after both divorces by order of Judges but I always included it in my signature even when I was married both times, and wrote it as my maiden name then. I am divorced twice, the most recent time in Oct 2007 after only 4 yrs of marriage the second time. Poole is my maiden name. Also, as furious as it makes the non-white races for me to say that I am a white woman it is necessary because according to web searches there is also a black woman who may or may not be named Gloria Poole. There are about nine other imposters also, who have stolen photos from me, domains from me, emails from me, images of my art I created from me, via fraud and treachery and deceit. I cannot and do not vouch for any of them. I do not have a Facebook account and never did and I do not have a Pinterest account, and never did. So, there's a reason for writing that I am the white Christian woman named Gloria Poole. I do know there is no one else authorized to log into my accounts of any sort but me.

Update on 25-March-2013 2 9:53 am to add reminders that my first cause is ending the heinous sin of abortion as a so-called "right" because GOD said it is a wrong in the Commandment 'thou shalt not kill" written in Exodus 20:13, KJV. As my way of effecting change for the prolife cause, I create, write, create content for several prolife blogs, including:

And I tweet on the prolife cause often from two twitter accounts with my name in them of @gloriapoole, and also @gloria_poole; but also from @ProlifeNurse; @personhood1; and also from another sort of pseudonym site that I am not listing here on purpose, but is not exactly secretive; and that has an ancestor of mine's surname in it.

All content I create, in any form, on any surface or medium, whether canvas, bristol, board, cardboard, wood board, masonite,sketch papers, watercolor papers, with any tool,brush, pen, pencil, stylus, or device, or app, or program is copyrighted as intellectual properties. I Gloria Poole, RN & artist in Missouri but born in the state of Georgia own all rights to what I create. I have never sold my copyright nor assigned it to anyone except 2 times: when I gave a huge painting I painted in oils & entitled "The Hand of GOD" to the Eskine Caldwell Museum in Georgia: and I gave the oil painting I painted and named "Angel with guitar" to the St Simons Island Georgia Museum.
