I drew this painted it twice, once in watercolors then again in acrylics, signed it,named it "the dolphins dock" , photographed it several times trying to get it right, and uploaded it to this blog of mine. This is not a real dock, but a composite of images I saw on TV and compiled on paper with pencils into a different version to make it unique. It is watercolor and acrylic on 9 x 12 paper. In my first marriage, he and I owned a motor boat and it was so much fun. I loved the marinas, and water-skiing, and flying along the water at sundown and sitting in the tri-hull in my swimsuit tanning as we explored the coves and inlets of the huge lake. We would pull our boat up to the lake and launch it and stay all day, and picnic and go home just after dark. This sketch is not a motor boat but a sailboat anchored to the dock. I have drawn and painted sketches of boats a few times and put some of those sketches below. That is my left hand holding the edge of the sketch and it looks that pinkish color because it is a strain on me to hold up digital camera with right hand, balance it against my nose so I can use my left hand to hold the bottom edge to prevent curling of paper. The little blue objects are anchors for boats that use a rope tie-up.
I drew , painted, signed, named this "Sailboat Missouri" and it is also posted to another blog of mine, months ago.
> I drew, painted, signed, and I am not sure if I gave this sketch a name, but it is obviously a sailing boat.
I drew, painted, signed, named this "the Salmon fishing boat" as it looks for salmon in the Alaskan sea. I think I also posted this to another blog of mine months ago.
I hope some day to own a boat again and spend much time on it. It's so much fun!

I have never signed a blanket waiver of my copyrights to art I have created and do not have an artist's rep [agent] to represent me, and never did]. I drew, painted, signed, photographed and uploaded all art on this blog and on any blog of mine.
For the record and to establish provenance of art I have already created also: the art I have created and signed and posted to this blog of mine is part of an on-going series of art I created since year 1991 beginning in Atlanta, GA that "blossomed" in year 2005 in Aurora, Colorado when I lived there for one year [May 2006-May 2007, and art began to really become an integral part of my efforts to save the baby humans from premeditated destruction. In 2005, I began to realize I could use the art to illustrate my talking points in some cases, and to build a secondary "career' for me as artist. In the year 2006 when I had endured and lived to tell about it a violent crash down a flight of stairs and had trauma, fractures, concussion, because my then-husband DBP was scheming a way to kill me to 'make it look like an accident" and he tried to twist off my broken leg, I had immobility for months except on crutches. As I sat with leg propped up I began to draw daily and paint to occupy the time and my mind. I also began to post art to the web on my blogs and websites, and also photographs I had photographed. I began a series of art then that is named "ethnic series by Gloria" [me] to attempt to draw and paint an art work of every ethnic group tribe, language, culture in the world and I created eight initial oil paintings in the first batch and posted them to the web on domains of mine. I moved from Aurora to zip code 80203 for 2 and 1/2 years and then moved to Missouri on Oct 31, 2009 with the art I had in my possession at that time. I paint some of the sketches I created in do-overs into oils on canvas and those are very visible on the web. I put many of them on my mini exhibit of art at https://mini-exhibition.blogspot.com, and also on my Picasa albums at https://picasaweb.google.com/gloriapoole.
I, Gloria Poole, am a white, Southern Baptist Christian, woman, single-again, twice-divorced,natural mother of only two children who are grown daughters named Jennifer and Leigh, and also a republican, personhood promoter, prolife activist-blogger, photographer, artist in all mediums, poet, author, illustrator, cartoonist, writer, University of Georgia alumna, U S citizen born in the state of Georgia [but I lived in several places including New York, UK briefly, Nebraska, South Carolina, Colorado, Virginia, North Carolina], former TV producer,tweeter, Registered Nurse licensed in Missouri [but before that in Georgia, UK, other states], owner/writer for words that WORK, and Tapestry of LIFE, photographer, and citizen journo . Gloria Poole is my real, born with legal name and I resumed my full maiden name including my surname of Poole legally by Court order at the time of divorce from male DBP in Colorado in Oct, 2007 at Centennial, Colorado; and I also removed the Pappas name from my name forevermore at the time of final decree in Oct 2007 . I was glad to end that four year horrible marriage of multiple trauma and injuries to me caused by male DBP, [which I testified about in Court on several occasions ]. That second divorce is public record in the state of Colorado, and my first divorce is public record in the state of Georgia. I have created art regularly since 1991, and I had formal training in drawing and in mixing colors /paint and painting in oils and I post much of the art I create on blogs of mine. You can see some of that art on one of my name blogs at https://gloriapoole.blogspot.com and see the about me page of that blog for the list of art blogs I own and post art too, that are all different. .
