Thank U UGA for that alumni video of Alma Mater

The University of Georgia tweeted to me a video from the Alumni Association a few days ago that was wonderful. It brought to my mind such memories of my years at the University, and of my graduation from there. It brought tears to me, in a flood of memories. I remember when I graduated from UGA, my mama and daddy & both my daughters who were young at the time, were in the audience watching. Afterwards, my daddy said to me that it "was one of the happiest days of his life". That thrilled me because he did not dole out praise very much.

Last evening I began a sketch of the UGA mascot and finished it this morning. It's on my drawing board, in one of my sketch books. I am posting it here as a thank you to the University for sending me the alumni video. It's merely a sketch on paper, with liquid watercolors and it's my first attempt to sketch or paint an English bulldog, or as we would say in the state of Georgia, a bulldawg, as in 'how 'bout them dawgs?" the student slogan.

FYI. I also painted a sketch today of a peacock and sent it to myself, but it seems to have been ripped right out of the transit lane as it left my phone that I photographed it with, since it did not show up in my inbox but was sent per confirmation. Criminals lurk everywhere on the internet, it seems. I live alone and am divorced and no one else is authorized to use or have access to any computer , telephone, or electronic gadget of mine, but me. Never conduct any business that matters a whole lot on the web. There is no security on the internet.

You may write to me via email [if your intentions are not harmful to me}, and or call me on my landline tel in Missouri; or via my cell phone numbers or my numbers posted on some of my blogs . I am not tolerant of scams however, so if that is your purpose, don't bother.

Also, I do not consent for any number of mine, or any account of mine, or any of my intellectual property, to be ported or transferred to anyone. I have received several scam calls in the past few days, so am very wary.

My Idea of "Red Hat" for Conference; Welcome Baby Prince!

Everyone has heard of "Red hat" [as in software and computers and technology]. This is my idea of "Red Hat". This is a first sketch of "Red Hat" and it needs some improvement. I might repaint it on canvas. It's 14 x 17 acrylics on paper, on my drawing table with acrylic paints, brushes, pencils, inks all around. Sometimes I leave the background on purpose at times because I have had much trouble holding onto MY NAME and art I create. I got the idea after I saw an ad in a magazine [that looked much better as a photo than this sketch does] and I thought of the DefCon annual conference is this week [or last week?] . And so I adapted the idea to a simpler form, omitting much that was in the photo to focus on the hat and the red lips to make world notice it's a woman wearing that red hat, because I want the tech industry to make room for women. A WOMAN engineer is rare. I think that is partly because technology is very sexist still. I think they en classe think that women are not smart enough to be engineers or to run a technology business or to reformat a harddrive and or do many of the tasks associated with maintaining computers. I think we women [females; half of the human race homo sapiens] collectively speaking are smart enough. I hope you enjoy this sketch. The person does not look much like the magazine--I altered it to be more as I thought an engineer who happens to be a woman would look [not as the glamour magazine ad showed it]. So, I hope this makes my point:

Here are my brushes and solvents [jars] that are in my studio such as it is. I have two areas of my apt that I paint in; with two different sets of supplies since oils and acrylics are very different mediums.

I am adding these to this blog because I intend to get control of my name and all that involves. My real name is Gloria Poole; and I am a Registered Nurse [sadly, not an engineer or architect but I think I was better suited for one of those]; and an artist who is a work-in-progress --ever learning, ever trying to get good at this art making.

Also, fyi, since my identity is still questioned by some on line companies: I am a white, Christian, single [divorced twice] woman; professional nurse; work-in-progress artist; writer, blogger, photographer, occasional computer tinkerer [of my own equipment when I have too]; mother; grandmother of minor children; voracious reader, republican; prolifer. Guess that sums me up, except to say that I don't work in nursing except to use the knowledge on line to teach the world on the prolife issues. See the blogs I create/write on that subject including;; and blogs that have my name in them that I add art I create too occasionally for example : See the about me page and also my profile pages on Google; Yahoo; Microsoft;wordpress; tumblr.

Update on 23-July-2013 at 10:49am in Missouri at my apt: I forgot to add my "Welcome to the world" to baby Prince of Cambridge born to UK's Prince William and his wife Catherine [official titles Duke & Duchess of Cambridge]. So, I am updating this post to write that, and to congratulate his mum and dad, and his "grands" and his great-grands and the UK also. I did tweet about those events yesterday in real time so if you follow my tweets you read my comments there. But because it is history in the making, I wanted to observe it on this blog which is probably the blog I write/post too the most. My blogs I write/ create were all created by me with my personal credentials, so they are mine still after many chaotic [because of trauma and events of my life] years. Also, along the lines of celebrating babies, last week-end I drew/painted a sketch in powdered pastels [but wrote on that blog it was acrylics--realized it later] and yesterday I added it to another blog of mine at I think that sketch does not look like a newborn. Newborns usually have chipmunk cheeks because of the born-with fat pads in their cheeks that enable sucking to get milk. So it's a redo but it makes a point also, which is that life is good--have living babies. Don't ever abort the gift of human life.

Sketches I created this week.

This is one of the sketches I created this week, and named simply "rocket". It's not a perfect sketch. but then of course, sketches are simply a prelude to a painting--a way of thinking through something I want to paint in oils on canvas as a time-consuming effort. Or think I want too. Sometimes after drawing the sketch and or painting it, I postpone indefinitely the painting into oils of it. Usually that means it has not yet congealed in my mind the angle I want to present, or the color scheme, or the "message" of the painting. So often sketches are relegated to forever be sketches only. But sometimes I use the sketch, to refer too to repaint it again in oils and modify it as I paint, or not. It's called "artistic license". The artist can adjust her painting or sketches any way she wants. So, here's rocket:

And another sketch I painted this week also, and named "farmer":

And this painting below is the first time I painted a shepherd in yr 1995 when I lived in Atlanta, GA. But I lived in Atlanta metro and city proper intermittently for a total of 13 yrs. It is not a real person but intended to be similar to a real shepherd who cares for the not smart sheep. You see the little grey lamb? It is acrylic paint on wood.

Also, have to tell that someone broke into the cell phone that I photograph with the most and altered the settings to distort the images of photographs to bizarre sizes, trying to make square those which are rectangles, etc. I tweeted about it and reported it to my carrier. They think they will force me to upgrade that handset, but they won't. I will not be coerced to change a phone I like simply because carrier wants more money from me. I'm not a use and toss person.

Sketch I painted named "bird on branch"

This is one of the sketches I drew and then painted with acrylics. Some people have seen prints in hardcopy [fine art prints made by professional press] of this sketch because I mailed it to some people to verify my ability to create art. It is obviously on my portable sketch board. [See the metal clips holding it in place?]. I have the original. Copyright and all rights to it belong to me .

Is the FCC also the lapdog of Obama?

I read in the news this morning that The Tribune is buying 19 TV stations. IF The Tribune was owned by Republicans,or prolifers,and / or Christians and not headquartered in Chicago, the Federal Communications {FCC} would be yelling from here to Europe about monopoly on broadcasting, and interference with competition, and taking over a market [TV broadcasting]. They would be filing legal process to block the sale. Where's the FCC now? Is it merely the rubber-stamp office for communications of the Obama regime? It sorta looks that way.

Change of topic but maybe not. This morning I had to unplug from wall jack, my landline telephone for few minutes to undo the attempt by hackers from the NSA from breaking into my telephone line [because I tweeted on those issues]. There's one thing the NSA spies/cyber-hackers are good at: persistence. They never give up trying to censor my words, block my isp that I pay for, or interrupt/prevent/intercept my telephone calls. And I think AT&T is their avenue of choice. AT&T is the spy network of NSA. I think the feds use the AT & T entire network to spy on people around the world; and AT & T rakes in the $$$ from fed govt with tractor-trailers, not rakes. That is why they are totally immune to any thing their customers want or that is in their customer's best interest. AT & T is not my isp acct but they don't let that stop them. They are the gov'ts "central cat". Remember that video on TED of the talk/presentation from the man from China talking about the censorship in China which is communist? He called the Chinese censorship "central cat" waiting to pounce on the "little people" who are docile and scared as mice. Sadly, the U S has a "central cat" the size of an elephant; that the entire world is furious about. So, this blog post is a political protest, which I do exercising my First Amendment liberties as a U S citizen, who has attributes of journalism for these reasons: 1) I wrote for two different newspapers as a photo-journalist "stringer" [free-lancer] in Georgia. 2) I published content online for years, with words that WORK and Life Media & Publishing. 3) I am a known photographer [though not considered professional --or paid journalist or paid photographer*] who is good enough that I had repository sites of my photos including art I created then photographed on the web for years and was listed on Google search because of it;and that hackers broke into my computer to steal 2 gigabytes of my photos in year 2008. 4) I am a known writer since about year 1993 and had a poem published {"Little Lydia"] and write on blogs for seven years. To set the record straight, I have First Amendment liberties even if none of that were true about me because those First Amendment liberties belong to ALL U.S. citizens by authority of the U S Constitution and the "Bill of Rights".

Change of topic again: I painted on my painting this past week-end and it's taking shape. I think I will like it. I also drew an abstract sketch that I haven't quite decided if I want to post on web. I am not sure it's finished for one reason, but also, I don't do abstract well. I don't generally like the chaotic appearance of abstract art, but I painted an abstract in late 1990s that got my photo in the newspaper as I walked in a protest for human life holding it as a banner in Atlanta. I have sketched on other abstract for my little now 2 yr old grandson, but he was about a yr old when I sketched that one and it's not on web. So all told, over 25 yrs span of painting as artist, I have sketched abstract art only 3 times. I will add more art to this blog of mine in a few days probably. I have company coming for July 4th celebration so will be poolside for few days maybe with mobiles; maybe not. They are not my tether! And I do not work for anyone anywhere. I work for myself as artist, writer, blogger. I am not an ngo and never was. I do not have not-for-profit status and never did, because of the restrictions on the First Amendment of that "IRS election " [to be persecuted and controlled by feds].

I have to write this repeatedly because of the 24/7/365 surveillance of prolifers who believe that killing of innocents is a grievous sin against GOD. {The "establishment"= regime of Obama has written a killing plan that will outdo Hitler by hundreds of millions of killed people.} I am a white, single, [divorced twice--most recently from DBP of Denver, Colorado] , woman, heterosexual only, Christian, Republican, prolifer, artist, Registered Nurse with a license in Missouri, mother of two daughters, grandmother of seven minor children, and writer, blogger, prolife antagonist to the fed killing plan. Just so you know what would be labeled my "bias" by perverts, and atheists, and evil people.

*footnote: I always worked for myself since about 1993 to build up a publishing company online. It was destroyed by sabotage of my then-husband in yrs 2003-2007 and even in yr 2010 that was 2 1/2 yrs after divorce from him. He used deceit, stolen documents from me, and fraud of going to different branches of my accounts with his girl friend, [ when I lived in Denver,] to fool the tellers to get my info by using my U S mail he stole. I moved to Missouri in Oct 2009 after 2nd divorce from him in Oct 2007, but he owes me millions for injuries he caused to me while he had a restraining order against him [in July 2006 in Aurora, Colorado but restraining order against him was issued at Littleton CO].

I have a few that are intended to not reveal who I am because every time I log in to my computer, I am tracked, stalked, hacked and my art I create is uploaded to some "cloud" somewhere without my permission. So I am gradually thinking through how to get a secure system and secure telephones and mobiles. Written at my apt in Missouri; 1-July -2013 at 10:28 am. Also, fyi, regardless of criminals may tell you, I am not moving from Missouri any time soon, or from my apt. Felons in Colorado do not speak for me and never did. I do not and did not do business at any time with felon, violent, DBP [a male I know for certain as marriage was heterosexual though he was bisexual. However, I did not know he was bisexual before having married him. Now divorced from him for the record since Oct 2007 in Arapahoe County Colorado and it is in the public archives of state of Colorado. But I was born in the state of Georgia, and only lived in Colorado seven yrs that were as hell, but only married the second time for 4 yrs and 10 months so DBP did not get U S citizenship via me.Gloria Poole
