Ethnic sketch Hollywood and genre photos by Gloria Poole of Missouri;Update2

This first sketch is one I drew, painted, signed, photographed uploaded today 9 August 2014 at 8:33 and named it "Hollywood femme fabrication" as part of the culture of the U S for ethnic series of art I am creating since 2006. More on that after sketches and photos. Also, I might add a gigantic glamour ring to this sketch later. Couldn't quite decide what sort would be correct so have to think on it some. In other words, I might embellish it some. Oh, femme is French for woman and fabrication means made up. This is not a real person. None of the "persons" in the ethnic series are real people, fyi.

I logged back in this afternoon at 4:34pm to add in the sketch with corrections to fingernail and with jewelry added. I couldn't imagine a glam Hollywood actress without jewelry of some sort. I am not expert at painting metals of any sort so it is only a rough approximation of a gold ring with carved in loops on it. I have only recently begun trying to draw and paint jewelry on sketches and I need more practice at that; but I think it makes the Hollywood image more authentic.

This second sketch is one of a golden, glittery chandelier such as one might see in certain palaces, mansions, hotels, or movies. I drew it, re-drew parts of it, tinkered with the painting of it several times [which explains the imprecise bottom edge when I got totally frustrated with making it look right and almost decided to ruin it [to tear it up], then tried again another day, then signed it in pencil, painted over signature with acrylic to fix it to paper,then photographed it at various stages of effort. It is not perfect by any stretch of imagination. But it does what I wanted it to do, which is convey the glitz and glamour of Hollywood movie making industry, which is big part of the American culture [but which is fading fast as other countries and other states produce movies much more reasonably.]. It and the above sketch are intended to portray the excesses of Hollywood.

The third image is a genre photograph I photographed in the past few days of a squash growing on its vine as a wild plant. It is what a farm girl like me [though I am not a girl now but a woman,but farm girl is a very common term in South Georgia] would notice. It is a photo I photographed on camera, not a sketch or painting.

The fourth image is a genre photograph I photographed this past week of a hot pink flower . I love to photograph flowers close up and look for opportunities to do that. It is also only a photograph not a sketch or painting.

The fifth photo is one I photographed of the back of a wedding dress I bought on sale for my daughter [who didn't like after trying it on, and decided to buy a different one] but I photographed that dress partially several times to have something to refer too when I am trying to paint pearls, lace or sequins. It is also a genre photo only not a sketch or painting, though I hope to refer to it when painting pearls since that is an area I need to improve on [for example see the so-called pearls I painted on sketch of Queen Elizabeth II wearing fur hat on my blog].

You can see lots more of the ethnic series I have created since yr 2006 on my online albums including ; and click on the album with word ethnic in label. And or on this album:

Plus, I put some on live albums of mine including:

Also, remember I post art I create to several blogs because I create art almost every day and want to leave it on sites a few days so post to different sites. I also drew and painted another musical sketch today but I have totally forgotten the name of the instrument being played and have to look it up. I do have that brain shift from the reason side to the creative side and at those times, time stands still, and logic / reason is sort of stored away in my brain til I put down my pencil(s) and or brushes, wash up brushes and my hands etc. I will post it later probably to a different blog. Copyright notice: this blog and all content, all words, all photos and all art that is tangible when created and then photographed belongs to me [ Ms ] Gloria Poole [ RN, artist] currently residing in Missouri but born in the state of Georgia.

For the record , for law enforcement and provenance of art I have created and scattered on web in various blogs: I , Gloria Poole,pictured at very top of this page, sitting in my foyer that I use as a drawing room, in winter 2013 am a white, Southern Baptist Christian, woman and the natural mother of two grown daughters who are Jennifer and Leigh but no other children. And I, Gloria Poole, am a Registered Nurse licensed in Missouri but before that in Georgia, Virginia, other states; and a poet, author, illustrator [see and for some of those] , and also a cartoonist at times, [see for those] and a blogger, citizen journo, photographer, writer, prolife activist, personhood amendment promoter, U S citizen by birth, republican. I am also single again since I am divorced twice and the most recent divorce was in Oct 2007 in Arapahoe County Colorado, divorce from male DBP, after 4 horrible years of marriage to him in which he injured me several times, tried to kill me four times, broke my leg, caused me concussion. I removed the Pappas name from my name forevermore at time of final decree of divorce from male DBP; and I resumed my full maiden name including my born with surname of Poole in Oct 2007 by Court order of District Court Judge in Arapahoe County Colorado [which is on the state divorce records of Colorado .] For more on that history of those frantic, awful, violent years in Colorado, read my blog in my former married name of; and also the about me page on this blog and on profiles or other blogs and twitter accounts of mine. I MOVED to Missouri on Oct 31, 2009 and brought with me all possessions I had at the time via commercial moving truck which arrived about 3 weeks later for some reason. I also brought with me 3 cell phones that belong to me that I acquired after divorce by buying them, or gifts to me. I changed the SIM card and number of one of those but kept the numbers on the two that were associated with my art and photos I photographed/ created. And those numbers were published on blogs of mine for years and are on Court papers for divorce etc, as my numbers. I also bought more phones in Missouri and have a wired, landline telephone in Missouri . I am not secretive in other words. I clarify this because someone in past few days tried to hijack an email account of mine that is on my isp account and that was important and they stole EVERY email from that account sent or received since I began that account in Oct 2009 when I moved to Missouri. I have asked the @FBI to help me get control of it again.
