Apples in mirror sketch by Gloria Poole of Missouri and Georgia; Update2

This is do-over number 1 of the sketch below. I was so aggravated with it the other day and so tired of trying and so exasperated with how over-worked it looked, I just thought post it as an effort and do something else rest of day. So, today, I tried again to make it look like a red tiled tray with mirror mosaic and apples reflected from the floor. It still is not perfect, or even "good"-- just better than it was. One thing about practice of any sport, skill, talent is that it improves by studying your mistakes and trying again.

This is my attempt to create apples in the mirror. I admit it doesn't much look like that but that is what it is supposed to be! I put the 1st iteration of this sketch without the apples in the mirror below this one. I put real apples on the floor and put a mirrored mosaic tray behind it to try to create a still life AND more importantly to see IF I could paint an image of a mirror. I couldn't paint a mirror very well, but I tried. So this is sketch one of what will become no doubt a long line of sketches as I teach myself the process to paint an image of a mirror that looks like a mirror on paper or canvas. I am not only person [woman] who doesn't know how to paint an image of a mirror. I googled it yesterday to get practical tips and it seems no body on web knows how to paint an image of a mirror onto paper or canvas! Which surprised me a bit.
.This is the sketch to begin with as I was creating drawing, then painting the "apples' on floor. The mosaic pattern of the so-called mirror is more visible. I covered part of the mosaic as I tried to paint in the mirror image of the beige paper on the "floor" under the "apples". I never tried to paint an image of a mirror into a painting or sketch before. However, i have sketched apples before as you will see if you scroll down page.

You can barely see my signature in the lower right corner of this sketch. This sketch and also the sketch of one green apple below is on other blogs of mine, [ I think].

This is watercolor.

I also post art I create to these blogs:

and occasionally on sites and twitter accounts of mine. You can follow me on twitter at @gloriapoole; @gloria_poole; and other accounts of mine also, IF your intentions are not to harm me.See the about me page of this blog for more info and also my Google, Yahoo, Microsoft, wordpress profiles. Also, you can view much more of the art I created on my Picasa albums, my flickr albums, my Live albums. Also, I do not link all blogs and sites to stay under the ten links per blog general rule to have better search engine results but all of my blogs and sites are decent, moral and may be viewed by any one of any age in any country.

This is my signature [but it varies from time to time a little bit as I sign my name depending on space to write it in, how tired I am, and how much vacant space I want to fill is.]. I created this for a this year's logo to clarify my blogs that I add original art that I create too.

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, and also on my Picasa albums at and on; and on flickr and Live albums of mine also.

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/photographer/illustrator for words that WORK, and also for Tapestry of LIFE,and also for Life Media & Publishing in years 2004-2011; and a just-for-fun-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 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 am adding that statement because cyber-thugs try constantly to hijack my phone numbers. Update 2 by me Gloria Poole , RN, artist of Missouri to add that criminals at remote are STILL trying to steal one of my AT&T phone numbers. It's an on-going battle since they purposely have NO security on AT&T servers. How could they steal from and spy on their customers if they had real security? I am documenting the attempt by cyber-thugs to hijack that number, that began on Friday evening so there is a record of it. Also, for #Google, some cyber-criminals are spoofing your call to login program I think since they have a different message, in a different voice and from a different telephone number than Google normally has and because the message says that Google will never ask for the code but of course the code is for the purpose of logging into google account so Google does ask for it. Google was broken into by Pentagon I think as they attempt to spy on the world. Gloria Poole,RN, artist; at my own , private apt in Missouri on 17 Nov 2014 at 9:51am.
