Painting & sketches by Gloria Poole of Missouri

I am adding here three sketches I created and a painting I painted of a mama in an old worn but loved chair holding an infant on lap and cat-napping. These photos are my own photos. I had to rephoto some of these. The first sketch is one I created of bare feet .

The second photo is my photo of the oil painting I painted that I already mentioned in first paragraph.

The third photo is my photo of a sketch I drew in ink years ago, and named "little boy & little girl have a secret".

The 4th sketch is the acrylic ethnic sketch I drew before I painted the oil painting that I named "The Scotsman" as one of the ethnic series of paintings I have painted/ sketched/ drawn for several years.

You may see more of the ethnic paintings and sketches I ave created on 2 of my specialized Picasa blogs at: https://picasaweb.google.com/115334933480582884622/MyEthnicPaintings_I_GloriaPoolePainted

Paintings and sketches created by Gloria Poole

I am adding the most recent ethnic sketch I drew/painted yesterday and named it "Ukranian musician" and it is mixed media on sketch paper. The second sketch is "T-ball" that I created to encourage one of my grandson's who was playing t-ball that year; and I put it on my xanga blog; and the thirdd is my oil painting I painted and named "mother and daughter walkabout" that I painted in 2012, and it is oils on canvas board. And the fourth is an acrylic painting I painted in yr 2006 when I was living in Aurora Colorado. Remember I divorced DBP [I did not contest his divorce petition for refusing to remove restraining order against him because he injured me several times]. I am adding much art I have crated to most of my blogs in past few weeks because my photos of my art I created were being hidden by cyber-criminals who were trying to imply that they were not moral or fit to be seen. And so the world knows I am alive and I have possession of 99.0% of the tangible art I ever created.

This is the most recent ethnic sketch I completed this morning and named "Ukranian musician":

This is watercolor sketch I created and named "T-ball":

This is oil painting I created and named "Mother and daughter on walkabout":

This is the acrylic painting I painted and named "Poppies on checkered cloth":

You may see more of the art I have created on these blogs of mine:

UPDATE on 27-Oct-2013 at 2:25 Pm: I logged back in to notify world that cyber-criminals broke into my blog at https://publishing-life.blogspot.com recently. I tried to reset the password { I have the telephone required to receive code to reset password and the password reset email that was on file but it has been tampered with by criminals at remote. ] It's a constant battle because those who hate GOD and who hate the unborn children have attacked every computer & device I have ever signed into that account with for years. The enemies of human life attacked my android tablets [ two of them], my yahoo accounts, my telephone frequently. Those who slaughter tiny humans are cut-throat ruthless, evil people on the payroll no doubt of those who kill tiny innocent defenceless humans for pay. But there is GOD and HIS NAME is not Obama and HE GOD doesn't take orders from the mafia of NJ or the murderous Planned Parenthood thugs. So, I will get control of that account since it has my content on the blog always and the devices that I logged in to it with belong to me totally [paid for in full in Nov 2011, and about Sept 2012 by me]. The evil murderous thugs think they have caused irreparable harm to me but they haven't. In fact, it wouldn't make any difference to me if I never used that crappy Samsung tablet again. It only lasted about a month before the password on it was hijacked by the Verizon Mafia of New Jersey. So, those who believe in JESUS, pray that HE overcomes and defeats the NJ Mafia/Verizon thieves. I cancelled that GOD-forsaken Verizon account in Jan 2013 precisely because it was run by the Mafia and those who murder tiny humans. I do not ever do business with murderers! NEVER!

I have lived in many places since becoming an adult [some time ago] and I have painted/ sketched/ drawn / created/ wrote/ blogged n most of them. I have had two public displays of my art I created in Georgia; and I was interviewed in Denver in yr about 2004 about it; and I was on TV in a March that was in news, and in news write up in Georgia. And I agreed to put 2 oil paintings in Museums in Georgia in late 1990s. I was the producer for the public TV show Tapestry of LIFE beginning in yr 2003 and wrote it, hosted it, created, and learned to operate the TV cameras as a prelude to having that show. I won a recognition in California that yr for the show that I created from the get-go.

Sketches of Royals by Gloria Poole also known as Gloria

These two sketches are two of the hundreds of sketches I have drawn and then painted, or in some cases drawn in pencils or inks and didn't paint. The first one is from seeing online a photo of Queen Elizabeth II in news, and trying to draw it/ paint it. And the second sketch is my rendition of Thailand King [ to be I think] that was also in the news. The third sketch is Saudi king Abdullah from news that year. I draw interseting people I see on my computer often quickly as I sit before my computer to look at news' photo. I also more often draw "fake" people that I make up as I go along when I am painting or sketching. Also, I added five of my sketches of Maharajas to another blog of mine yesterday at: https://gloriapoole-paintings.blogspot.com. I also added many to my Picasa albums so look-see those also.

My Picasa albums are at:

https://picasaweb.google.com/gloriapoole

and/ or at:

https://picasaweb.google.com/115334933480582884622/MyEthnicPaintings_I_GloriaPoolePainted;

is my new Picasa albums I created on 19-Oct-2013, for my ethnic pantings & sketches that I painted.

And also I corrected the wrong url that was on my genre photographs to:

https://picasaweb.google.com/115334933480582884622/PhotosByGloriaPoole;

And also these:

https://picasaweb.google.com/gloria0817/GenrePhotosPhotographedByGloriaPoole

+ https://picasaweb.google.com/gloria0817/Album2GenrePhotosPhotographedByGloriaPoole

but these might be the same but with different url. There has been six years of confusion over the use of my born with name! But my name of Gloria Poole however it is written belongs to me! These urls were correct few minutes ago but cybercriminals broke into my computer & stole a photo I took of a painting I painted ; but anti-intrusion stopped them I think, as I was moving a photo of art I created that is my own photo to a different category. So it's anybody's guess if these are the correct addresses for my Picasa albums of art I created and photos I photographed but I think so, but those addresses above were correct few days ago. So, if those above are not correct, try these:

Original sketches by Gloria Poole also known as Gloria on paintings

I am putting here one of the sketches I did for the ethnic series and three of my sketches trying to learn portraiture painting. I forgot I had drawn sketches of real people from the news until I was rephotographing the originals. [It's been a hard five years from 2007- present on me physically, secondary to trauma.] These sketches are:

Prince Charles that I drew from the BBC news and painted with powdered pastels. This was about the fifth time I had tried to paint his likeness.

The second sketch is my attempt to draw/ paint the Canadian prime Minister Stephen Harper from the news.

The third sketch is one I named Asian Leader [but I think now it was a photo in news of Chinese Leader because he is in news much now.]

The fourth sketch is one for the ethnic series that I drew and painted and named "Aramaic man" in watercolors.

Also, see the previous post for the link I put in t to the Picasa album I began over week-end for my ethnic paintings and sketches that I have been creating since about 2006.

I Gloria Poole photographed a spaceship!

These are some of what I think is the international space station or a satellite visible via camera lens, but I named them "spaceship' that I photographed at various times, and usually in rapid sequence. These are some of my original photos that I photographed on walkabout. Also, I have added many photos in the past few days to my Picasa albums and my flickr albums. I have several Picasa albums and I think they are all visible to the public. They are all decent, moral, so any age group in any country could see them. Some include paintings I painted, and sketches I sketched, and genre photography and cartoons, and profile photos , and personal [selfie] photos of me Gloria Poole. The albums I updated today and past 2-3 days are

Photos I Gloria Poole photographed

I am adding some of the genre photos I took over time. I have added photos I took to the web intermittently since 2007. A few days ago, when I was uploading from my camera, it said I had photographed nearly 42,000 times in past 6 years! I was surprised by that figure a bit, but I do photograph often with a variety of cameras. I take photos of my two daughters & their husbands and their children at holidays but I do not post them to the web. Today as I was uploading from my camera, it said about 800 photos in most recent "photo-op" I had with my daughters and their families. These are what's called genre photography of landscapes, flowers, glimmery fish: These photos are: shimmering fish I saw somewhere:

Second photo is bright flowers I saw on walkabout:

Third photo is a chapel in the gardens, near to me, that I walkabout in, some:

The next is pink magnolias I think. I am no flower expert but the blooms sort of look like magnolias only pink; so I called them that:

The next photo is a ruby red fish in a goldfish bowl.

The next photo here is a goldfish in an aquarium. I love to photograph and paint goldfish and tropical fish.

Some more art I Gloria Poole created

I Gloria Poole am adding my photos of art I created to online albums and to my blogs, just to share and to remind people that it's what I do and to try to build up an artist's reputation for me. I had a long enough career as RN and can't work in that now because of much trauma to me over several years' time. But first let me say I went to the pumpkin patch festival in Missouri yesterday and had a great time and took many photos. I put some of them on my flickr blogs now that I have them back. * So, here's an assortment of art I made. Begin with the first photo which is of the Angel with guitar painting I painted when I lived on St Simons Island, GA. It is huge, heavy painting in oils, and signed by me.

The second photo is one of the ethic paintings I painted as part of the series of ethnic paintings I began in yr 2007, when I lived in Aurora, Colorado for a year in the apt that my then-husband [DBP] had to move out by court order for violence against me. Then I moved to Missouri on Oct 31, 2009, after divorce from him in Oct 2007, in Arapahoe County Colorado. I have continued painting on the ethnic paintings and there are about 20-25 of them now. I was numbering them in sequence in yr 2007 but have to put them all in same room and see where the numbering left off, to begin it again. This painting is in oils, and when I painted it, I didn't have anybody in mind. I was striving for German look so named it "German lady".

The third photo is my photo of of an ethnic sketch in acrylics that I painted I think in yr 2007, and named it "Cherokee Indian". I saw a thumbnail photo in an old book and tried to paint it.

The 4th photo is my photo of art I created using a graphics program in year 2008 when I had moved to zip code 80203. I lived there in zip code 80203 for about 2 1/2 yrs after I had moved from Aurora, Colorado when injured by then-husband who filed for divorce because I would not lift restraining order against him. Then in Oct 2009, I moved to Missouri. There were many loose ends to sort, and legal hearings of several sorts [as witness to violence etc against me, divorce etc mostly of mess caused by DBP] to attend before I felt it was ok to move away from Colorado. I am NOT a native of Colorado however. I was born in the state of Georgia . I would not recommend the Colorado experience to anybody. It's a lawless state. I have to include much detail because one of the Museums that I was trying to interest in doing an exhibit of my art I create, thought this year that I still lived in Colorado. I moved to Missouri on Oct 31, 2009, and do not have another residence anywhere. I do own some land in Georgia, however.

So, about the graphic art produced panda: I was using a computer graphics program for the panda on this page. The others I painted with brushes, and drew with pens/ pencils on hard surfaces of either canvas or sketch book. I seldom produce graphics-created-art. I think I have about 2-3 times in about 5 years, but when I do I create til I get tired of it, and change the medium to one I use more. So, enjoy : The panda was one of my better graphics-art but I did create more. More on that later.

Footnote: I got my flickr blog of gloriapoole back thanks to Yahoo's effort. So a public thank you to Yahoo/flickr. I couldn't log into my first flickr acct for almost 4 YEARS! Then when I finally created new flickr accounts, the previous flickr account I began in yr 2005 reappeared with a few of my photos I took on it. I also have another flickr accountt created on an app. So, I am not sure how all of that works? Anyway, the 2 flickr accts I began on my computers are:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/gloriapoole; and profile at http://flickr.com/people/gloriapoole.

And also at http://flickr.com/photos/gloria_poole; and profile at http://flickr.com/people/gloria_poole. I still have my Picasa albums [and possibly my T-Mobile albums online also] also and they are totally different , so to see much of the art I have created since about 1993 you would have to see my online albums and my blogs. There may be one or two photos the same , but generally they are different. I added some new art world has not seen before to my gloriapoole flickr this evening.

The photo at the top is me Gloria Poole wearing a UGA sweater of red/black/white with red sleeves, and it is this year's photo of me. It is on other blogs of mine and I added it to my albums. It was taken by me in my front room in front of the wall I use to display some of my paintings. I am Christian, heterosexual [straight always no matter how many times the web confuese me with someone else] and single. I own the copyright to all art I create, fyi. I am a University of Georgia alum also, and a Registered Nurse, with a license in Missouri. I "work" only for myself, creating art, from my own apt in Missouri and put it on web with my own computers. devices/phones. I am a private U S citizen. Gloria Poole.

Three more ethnic paintings by Gloria Poole

I am adding three more of the ethnic oil paintings I painted for the ethnic series I began in yr 2006. I have added batches of my ethnic paintings to several of my blogs and I will tell you where to look. First, enjoy these. This is "Irish student" . These are NOT real people but made up in my head as I was painting. Often I have done several sketches to get idea of how I want a particular painting to look, but not always. Sometimes, I just put a blank canvas on my easel and go at it.

This second painting is titled "Sleeping in a stetson" and the stetson was prompted by the man I dated after my second divorce.:

This 3rd oil painting is named "Mandarin Orange Lady" and is one of the original first set of paintings in yr 2006-2007. I have painted on that series in spurts i.e. intermittently for yrs. I have posted these on other blogs individually but I am categorizing the ethnic paintings I painted in your mind [your good loyal viewers you!]:

I am not adding in much comment tonite because I am tired. Someday, when I have all 20-25 of these paintings assembled in one place, I am going to number them by when I created them. Some of them have numbers such as ethnic painting # so & so. I have all of the paintings but in several places in my apt. You can view the comments on the blogs where I posted them individually by looking through these blogs of mine:

And my cartooning blogs are:

And I have PROLIFE sites that I create/write also, and you will see some of those listed alongside some of the blogs. I would appreciate it greatly if you would take the time to read the prolife blogs . They are very important. You can start with https://prolife-nurse.blogspot.com. There is so much good news in the prolife realm. 53% of US ' population publicly state that they are against abortion in most cases. That's a turning point. I urge you to watch the prolife music video by John Elefante who is the lead singer of the band "Kansas" and the title of it is "This Time". It will affect you. There are no aborted babies in it & that's the point. It's on youtube and I put links on my prolife blogs to it, also. Also, read each prolife blog I write/create because they are unique and have much good news of how prolifers are winning the battle for the right to be born alive. It's the civil rights issue of this century.

*Footnote: in fact, I cannot think of any time I signed in paint my full name on the front of a painting but I have painted for about 20 yrs so it's possible, I suppose in those early years.

I am also known on the web and on my paintings and sketches as Gloria in script on the art itself; and Gloria Poole on the art itself sometimes,but not usually my full name on the front of the painting itself;but on the back of it*]; and also known on web as Gloria; gloria0817; gpoole817; gloriapoole1749; gloria.poole; gloria_poole; gloria-poole; gloriapoole;and other variations of my born with name of Gloria Poole.

Jockey/Rider & Kentucky Derby sketches by Gloria Poole

I am creating art and tweeting, and battling the government censors who really really hate the word PROLIFE, because most of those dinosaurs in the U S Senate of Congress are prodeathers. So, I think the gov shutdown will do this nation good. It will make them set priorities, and stop funding the evil ngos of Planned Parenthood, Center for Reproductive [killing] and the ACLU. So, I have not quit the battle for the right of tiny humans in human wombs to be born alive. It's very hard at times, because government censors lurk on my phones and computers & they are paid for by "team Obama" ngo slush fund of taxpayer money who plans to kill as many innocents-in-womb-as possible with is "ObamaCare" depopulation scheme. Hopefully, the government shutdown will shut down the massive NSA/PRISM /xkeystrokes spynet of "Big Brother" government as defined in book 1984 And hopefully it will take the spynet pressure off PROLIFE citizens like me. .

Along that same line of thought, this morning one of my cell phones I most like to photograph the art I create with, is broken into by criminals at remote AGAIN. It will make calls but it won't send any text --the evil man who hates me the most, hates me because I created art that didn't include him, and that I didn't try to make 'him a movie star" when I had the chance. AS IF that would ever happen. He was the [then] husband from hell. I am divorced from him for past 5 years and he is not authorized on any account of mine. I suspect he is the person breaking into my cell phones from remote because in his tiny mind, he thinks it would stop me from blogging and telling of his crimes against me. It wouldn't. I would just buy different brand of phones on different carriers; and equipment and carry on. Also, photos I sent to my email from my iPhone still vanish at times--stolen in transit by criminals at remote, who know all iPhones info is on some public record somewhere provided by Apple. I have several phones simply because they all are unreliable and not secure, and I never know if any of them will work properly. They all seem to have to have built-in criminals at remote locations who are unknown to me [I didn't add them or consent to them]; who watch every text I type and every photo I take and every photo I mail to try to steal them, censor my religious or political speech, steal photos of art to use to steal my ID with; and etc etc etc. I tweet about that often, and wish I knew what cell phone carrier in U S had honest staff and safe phones.

Here is a sketch in watercolors that I drew and painted yesterday. It is slightly fuzzy and I think that is because I was adjusting the size of the photo after I took it. It was set to a size as big as a billboard practically, so I adjusted it to fit better. It is on my sketch book, clipped to my portable drawing board because I draw sometimes away from my drawing table. Oh, yea, I sort of penciled in the shape of the face later, so it does not show on this sketch. Also, I sketch a lot, and then take a few days to paint in oils. I sketch / draw refining my skills and firming up in my mind how I want something to look. A sketch usually takes me 10 min to draw and about an hour to paint, but of course, that depends on how elaborate it is. I also experiment with all artist's mediums : goauche, tempera, powdered pastels, making own pigments, inks; watercolors, acrylics. I paint in canvas as a general rule only with oil paints and turpentine/ solvents.

Also, I am adding below Jockey & Rider my sketch I drew/painted & named "Kentucky Derby". This was on my xanga blog that is ??? where.

I think I have discovered a better method of getting photos from a camera to a blog, and I will test it to be sure, but not right this moment. Also, remember I add my photos of art I create to other blogs of mine, including :
