This is only the preliminary drawing in pencils with watercolors which are easy to paint over.
This sketch is 14 x 17 inches on paper and I think I drew the neck too thick, but not sure yet. Because when horses are in fast run or gallop their backend sort of folds up under them and their front legs and neck extend out to produce the strain of pulling their weight forward at fast speed. They are amazing to watch as their muscles strain. I may redraw parts of this when I repaint it.
Also, I am putting here the pencil drawing I drew last night of Abraham Lincoln, though I don't think I "captured" his exact likeness with a pencil. I was drawing from a photo of Matthew Brady's [famous civil war photographer] and a well-known image of the President of the U S, who was republican [party that became the republicans] who freed the slaves. I am white woman but think Abraham Lincoln and Pres George Washingtn did more for this country than any President since.
I also post art that I create on several blogs of mine including:
https:/prolife-nurse.blogspot.com; prolife is main purpose
https://save-the-baby-humans.blogspot.com; prolife is main purpose
https://real-women-have-babies.blogspot.com; prolife is main purpose
https://cartooning-by-gloriapoole.blogspot.com; cartoons for pre-k children as story to be read to them b their parents;
And I upload photos of genre stuff and also art I created to my twitter accounts from time to time. You can follow me on twitter: @gloriapoole and or my other 4 twitter accounts that I use according to purpose /intent of tweets. I identify myself on y twit accounts.
This is not all the blogs or websites that I create nor that I post art I create too. But's it's a good start and to see all blogs and sites, see list on about me page on:
https://artist-gloriapoole.blogspot.com. Each is different so if you want to see all the art I post on web you would have to look at every site and blog I have created since 2002. I draw, paint, sign, photograph, upload the art I create to my own blogs for my own purposes. I am not an employee of anyone and I am not a "volunteer" for any one. I do what I do to glorify GOD [the prolife blogs] and to market my skills as artist to world, and to allow viewers who could not afford admission to museums to have avenues for viewing art and learning art methods and mediums.
Also, about the cyber-attacks against me: my yahoo accounts are restored [or at least they work when I log into them] thanks to @Yahoo and @FBI. And I got control of the cell phone that was hacked last week; and reclaimed a couple blogs of mine that were hacked and tried to secure them.

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 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; prolife blogger, and photographer.

Also, for the record, I am not an employee of anyone, and not a volunteer for any group , charity or business. I draw, paint, blog, tweet from my own private apartment under the auspices of the First Amendment of the U S Constitution.
