The first sketch is my attempt to draw and paint Queen Elizabeth II in year 2009 as I saw her in the news. I painted it with ink and signed it.
The second sketch is one I drew and painted of Prince Charles as he looked in the news on a particular day. I also sketched him four other times and at some point I might put all those sketches together on mini exhibition blog.
The third is Saudi King Abdullah as I saw him in the news that day. I drew this but didn't add much paint as his clothing was white.
The 4th sketch The King of Jordan that I drew in powdered pastels.
The 5th sketch is Sweden's King Carl Gustaf XVI in a very rough sketch more of a drawing.
The 6th The King of Thailand :
The 7th sketch is Prince William in his RAF uniform:
The 8th sketch is King David that I drew long ago when I lived in Atlanta GA to make it look sort of like stained glass:
The 9th sketch is a pencil drawing of my idea of what King Arthur looked like. Whether he looked like this or not, I do not know. King Arthur was real but long dead, and it is possible I saw photos of paintings of him in history books at some point in time and the image was in my mind. I did not draw it from an actual photo of King Arthur because photos did not exist in that time.
The tenth sketch is the Emperor and Empress of Japan and it s also a pencil drawing only .

Copyright Notice: I, Gloria Poole, residing in Missouri but born in state of Georgia and U S citizen own this blog and all rights to it and to all content, words, photos and art on it. I created it to begin with, years ago [but modify it intermittently] , and have continued it after I moved to Missouri Oct 31, 2009. I own all rights to this blog and to all content of it. I created the art and signed it, that I put on it,and photographed it;and uploaded it to this blog. I have the original paintings and sketches. I also own all rights to any art, words, graphics I have created or do create in any place, for any reason or no reason, with any tool or method or brush on any surface, at any time. I have never assigned my copyrights to any one and I do not have an artist's rep or a literary agent at this time and have never had either [in the past]. I sign my name on art as Gloria, and on some sketches as Gloria Poole. Gloria Poole is my real, born with, legal name since I resumed it legally after my 2nd divorce which was in Arapahoe County Colorado. I removed the Pappas name from my name forevermore by order of District Court Judge at time of final decree of divorce from male DBP in Oct 2007 who lives in Colorado; and I resumed my maiden name including my surname of Poole. I moved to Missouri on Oct 31, 2009. I am also known on the web as; gloriapoole; Gloria as on art such as this which I signed when I completed it; gloria.poole; gloria-poole; gloria0817; gpoole817; gloria_poole; gloriapoole1749; gloriapoole.RN; gloriapooleRN at yahoo in which the RN means standard abbreviation for Registered Nurse; and as artist-gloria; artist-gloriapoole; gloriapoole-paintings; Poole, Gloria; Ms. Gloria Poole; Gloria Poole creator of words that WORK and Tapestry of LIFE; and as other variations of my real, born with, legal name of Gloria Poole. And I am known as G-L-O-R-I-A on http://gloriapoole.wordpress.com and I had three domains with much art I created with my name written that way, for about 6 yrs until they were stolen from me by cyberthugs. I also had many domains and many with my very name written as gloriapoole in them from years 2004-2011 when criminals broke into my web-hosting accounts and ripped my domains and content right out-of-admin-panel. I have not bought domains since , because there is no security on web-hosting 'packages" because they do not honor business law or contract laws or any laws that I can tell since web-hosting companies do not try to stop cyber-criminals.
For the record: I am white, single again [divorced twice], woman with brown hair, Southern Baptist [Great Commission] Christian, and the mother of two grown "children" who are daughters named Jennifer and Leigh. I am also a Registered Nurse licensed in Missouri; and an artist in all artists' mediums; and a blogger, tweeter, poet, author of children's book, and citizen journo; and photographer. I was born in the state of Georgia and am a US citizen by birth so I have all Constitutional protections including the First Amendment right to publish, speak, write, protest and the right not to associate with ungodly in general and atheist perverts in particular, or with violent murderous people or with alcoholics or with d-r-ug-a-d-d-ic-t-s [spelled to try avoid being labeled as wrong sort of person by political censorship on the prowl].
Also, I have other blogs that I put art I create on, and other blogs that I write on the prolife cause on, and blogs for publishing the gospel and being good citizen. I put a list of my blogs in previous posts so you should see those and also the about me page and the links on this blog to other blogs of mine. Also, for the record, I am not an employee of anyone; and no one has the right to use or display my art I create and sign except me. I have never signed away my copyright to anyone en masse and probably never will. I draw, sketch, paint from my own apartment as a private citizen of the U S living in Missouri. I moved to Missouri in Oct 2009, after a second divorce in Oct 2007 in Arapahoe County Colorado from male DBP.
