Tools sketch by Gloria Poole of Missouri ;Update

. I drew this last night while "watching" TV and then painted it first in watercolors, then again in acrylics this morning. I photographed it several times and uploaded to this blog of mine to make a point. The word tools means a lot of things to a lot of people. A carpenter uses a set of tools that is different from those a plumber uses. And "tools" on a computer are merely some software application to do a specific task. But of course, every tool does a specific task. I added in the tools of an artist: ink, a drawing pen [dip pen] , a paint brush. I thought about adding in a T-square, ruler, protractor, but thought it would make composition too cluttered. I photographed this on my giant easel, [which I seldom use as easel because canvases that size are very expensive [for my budget] so I use it as a stand to photograph with some of the time. I have an assortment of easels in all sizes. This is to show hopefully, that artists also use tools. I learned as a child growing up on a family farm how to use many tools. My daddy expected all of us to be able to repair most anything, and even expected me to know what parts of a car engine were causing the problem. I never quite got good at detecting parts of car engines and just pretty much abandoned cars of my own years ago when they were perpetual aggravations to me. But my point is, every trade has its tools. I worked as Operating Room Circulator and also as First Assistant which are specific tasks/ roles in operating rooms; and I learned that surgeons have hundreds of very specific tools also.

I know I am not the artist I want to be, so I keep practicing to improve my skills. The sketches I create and post to blogs are to help teach others who create art, and to have a way of giving something pleasurable and decent to the world to view. When I get really good, I am going to buy a huge, big as a wall canvas and paint a scene that tells a story, sort of like the tapestries of Europe from medieval times do.

This sketch below is my painted signature on palette for my logo. I am adding it intermittently to blogs of mine that I post original art and photos I photograph too.

Also, in past few days, I put more of the art I created on these blogs of mine:

I have never signed a blanket waiver of my copyrights to art I have created and do not have an artist's rep [agent], nor literary 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 tried 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 and walking boot after surgery to repair fractures and implant metal. 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, brown-haired 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/blogger/ illustrator/photographer for words that WORK, and also for 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. .

I changed the contact info around some and I made other changes trying to wrench free my blogs from cyber-criminals. The 2 blogs I changed some are https://artist-gloriapoole.blogspot.com; and https://gloriapoole-paintings.blogspot.com. I make an effort to document those sort of events for 2 reasons: to help the good buys track the bad guys,[to stop ID theft and actual theft of my content] and to make sure that my blogs are safe for visitors to see/ view. I cannot guarantee the internet and it seems no one can; but I do all that I know how to do myself, and involve all the so-called powers-that-be who control the internet that I pay for access too.
