Sketches Inspired by Ballets

I have witnessed, photographed ballet performances intermittently since my two daughters took ballet lessons. There's much hustle in the backstage dressing rooms, the photo areas, the stage as they prepare to perform. That's true of any major production of course. I have also witnessed as TV studios were set up, and also "manned" the big TV camera at times [ I am a woman] and watched TV performances be filmed for playback on TV. These three sketches are some of my sketches done over a period of time, as I was trying to learn to paint what I saw in several places [but with my artistic interpretation [called artistic license] of them. They are very rough images-- on my drawing board that accompanies me to lots of areas of my apt. They are not perfect sketches by any stretch of imagination. But it's a learning process. I drew these free-hand [as always] and then painted them. The lighter color plie [French, should have accent] is in watercolors, and the other two are acrylics. I named the one of the adult putting on make-up behind the scenes "backstage" as that is what the prima ballerina does before putting on her costume. And I named the others ballerina and ballerina2 I think.

There has been an on-going effort by criminals since about 2004 to steal anything I put on the web. So, it's an effort to keep any of it on the web.

If you want to contact me, and your intentions are good [as in not planning to kill me or ruin me] you can call me --I have phones--or email me, or write to me via U S mail in Missouri. Also, my daughters Jennifer , and Leigh know how to get in touch with me; and also my siblings in Georgia,and Alabama. Also, my contact info since 2007 is probably in a Google search somewhere; and is on some of my blogs. I am interested in getting a physical gallery & seem to need help with that. I still do not have much physical stamina and tire way sooner than I want too, usually,from trauma twice. I have many paintings in oils and hundreds of sketches--my art spans time from about 1993 to yesterday. I have another sketch in process on my drawing table. Some of my sketches are better than others depending on how tired I was at the time.

My sketch of magnolia photographed w/ 2 different cameras.

This is one of several photos I took of this same sketch that I sketched in oil pastels and completed yesterday. The first two photos of it that I photographed and sent to myself to upload were fractured by criminals breaking into my cell phones during nite last nite; [ that I tweeted about extensively on 2 twitter accts of mine] and I deleted those two and re-uploaded two different photos I took of my sketch I created. I named this sketch in oil pastels "Magnolia sketch".

This second photo below of the exact same sketch is a photo I took with my iPhone. You can certainly see the difference in the quality of cameras. It's for purposes of proving my point, that Apple products are not as good as other companies' products are. Same Magnolia sketch:

It has been a trying day. I tweeted about it in detail on two twitter accounts of mine; for purposes of legal documentation about cyber-criminals breaking into my telephones [whether landline phone or cell phones, or iPhone}, because I want help from law enforcement help getting rid of cyber-criminals/criminals from my telephones.

Also, fyi, I am a single white heterosexual Christian to clarify [because Google search says there are "13 professionals all named Gloria Poole" which seems unlikely to me! But I can prove my name and identity and place of birth in US]. Gloria Poole, RN & artist at my apt in Missouri; 1:47pm; 20-April-2013

See my 1st try at making rings

This photo is my photo of my hand wearing the very first ring I ever made [successfully]; and you might as well know I was inspired by some of the sort of eclectic designs in the Robert Redford jewelry catalog. I'ts not a perfect ring, nor a perfect photo. I could only photo with one hand ! And usually need both on camera to steady it especially if standing. But you can get an idea of it and see the design .

I like making almost anything--cakes with decorated patterns and stories with icing; jewelry in form of necklaces, pendants, bracelets; ceramic dolls when my two daughters were little; and then making clothes for the dolls; and of course, painting, sketching, drawing intermittently. And photographing all the time as I walkabout. And blogging, writing, tweeting also. And I love tinkering [to a degree] with electronic gadgets/ computers/ devices.

It's a way of being productive; but I buy most of the jewelry I actually wear. It was a fun way to spend an afternoon.

March Winds Arrived in April: has Spring really sprung???

I have been busy all week "working" [for myself from my apt] at a snail's pace because of necessity to try push forward. But I briefly went walkabouts and I photographed the flowers around as they were being blown about by the wind. I am still learning how to do that. My oldest daughter {Jennifer Borelli} is a professional photographer & she instructs me on topics I ask for help with, but usually when I'm walking about I am so spur of the moment that it doesn't occur to me until I get back home that I should have done such & such [on camera settings]. So, the photo I had planned to add here, from walkabout was blurred, so decided to add the indoor in my apt photos I took of roses.

Here are some photos of roses that I took some time ago.

And another one:

And a bouquet to share with world:

I will have more sketches to add soon. But I am gradually thinking how to create a physical gallery and then I will probably quit putting the art I create on the web. These three photos are PHOTOS only--not painted or sketched. But I do paint, sketch, and draw often, using almost every artist's medium. And have for years. Some of my paintings are in the backgrounds behind me on some of my photos of me.

And some of my paintings, sketches & drawings are on a variety of blogs of mine including:

and possibly on other blogs of mine including my PROLIFE blogs of :

. So, Google my name, and I am the white, Christian, single [divorced twice] woman with two grown daughters named Jennifer & Leigh; and sorta young grandchildren. I think grandchildren are GOD's rewards for enduring life; along with sunrises, sunsets, flowers, oceans, trees.

Also, I am still writing on the PROLIFE cause, as since 1991, beginning in State of Georgia.

Spaceship Photos I photographed on walkabout.; Prolife news

Photo 2:

Photo 3:

Photo 4: This photo below was a different day with a different camera and with about hour's difference in time of morning. The first three I photographed at about 8:38 am, and the fourth one about 9:30am on two consecutive days this week.

I took these photos with two different cameras near where I live and walkabout. I tweeted about these a few days ago. I am fascinated that none of the objects in red, blue are visible to my eyes, but only appear on the camera. I have many cameras --about 12 I think) and I use them intermittently, deciding based upon several factors; but often depending on the one or two I have with me at any given time. I think I am photographing either a spaceship or a satellite. Not sure. But I have photographed them in different locations, at different hours of the day, in different states. Usually just random photos as I walkabout. Enjoy.

Also, I would appreciate it if you would follow me on twitter at @gloriapoole or read the website with archives included at; or follow me at @gloria_poole ; or any of the 3 prolife twitter accts I have/write :@ProlifeNurse; @personhood1;@Tartan_Bliss.

I logged back in today to add some good news for baby humans. The backlash against the media blackout of prolife events has begun in earnest. When the light of the sun [sunshine laws' basis] shines on evil, evil vanishes [according to the bible, but paraphrased]. Here are snippets from the articles you should read about prolife events. These were sent to my inbox to help publicize.; Quote: "– Twenty-one leaders in the pro-life and conservative movements have signed a statement denouncing national broadcast networks ABC, CBS, and NBC for failing to give any attention to the murder trial of Philadelphia “House of Horrors” abortionist Kermit Gosnell. The statement, written by L. Brent Bozell..." and " ABC, CBS, and NBC have not mentioned the case even once on either their morning or evening news shows". And " The letter continued, “The horrific excesses of the abortion industry – exemplified by Gosnell and Planned Parenthood – are major, national news stories any way you look at them. But the pro-abortion liberal media are determined to hide them from the public. The media have a solemn duty to the American people to report the news, not just news that helps the positions they support. It’s unprofessional, it’s disgusting, and it’s inhuman.”

My favorite NFL player who happens to be Christian= Tim Tebow is speaking at prolife event; [with great photo of that handsome man]:; with quote: "Tebow will appear at an Involved for Life event in April at the Dallas Omni Hotel and the following day he will also appear at a Trinity Christian Academy fundraiser." [from The Dallas News]. YEA! This is wonderful news to me because the tiny preborn humans need a man like Tim Tebow to stand up & be counted for them. He's a great Christian influence and I thought GOD had great things for him to do when I saw that Tim Tebow prolife ad years ago on national TV.
