This is one of the #ethnicseries sketches I created today for the on-going ethnic series of oil paintings and sketches I began in year 2006 and continue to this day. I saw two things that caused me to think this would be good to draw and paint as representative of the midwest United States. I saw a musician playing an accordion at the local farmer's market and I saw a photo of an accordion player in the University of Georgia travel brochure that I receive as a University of Georgia alumna. I drew this in pencil first and photographed it also and that photo is below this one. Then I painted it in acrylics. It was a two hour sketch which is twice the time I usually spend on sketches. I couldn't seem to get that park bench to look right! I have seen and photographed park benches a few times, but this morning I couldn't seem to recall them in a manner to be exact enough to paint from, and didn't want to look up my photos. So, It's a sketch--not a painting, which means it is merely a way of capturing an idea I had to create an oil painting possibly of this theme, putting it into my rendition of musicians, adding in background and bench and altering clothing and appearance of musician. I have sketched musicians several times before and also "bands" I created with paper, paint and ink and pencils. So Google them to find them or search archives of my art blogs. This is not a real man, but one I created with pencil and paint.
I drew this sketch with pencil first and then signed it and photographed it and uploaded all to this blog of mine today 15 March 2015.
Also see #ethnicseries sketch I created yesterday named "Chilean cowboy" which I posted to my https://gloriapoole.wordpress.com. That is not a real man in that sketch.
And see my other blogs that I post art I create too for more of the art I created.
Also, FYI, I am not displaying [yet] the poster I made for the city poster [in Missouri ]contest and think they will display it in time. I submitted it in person this past week.

And remember that the phones associated with this blog and its underlying account belong to me and always belonged to me and are in my apartment in Missouri; and that I also have a wired landline telephone in Missouri and cell phones. I swap around my numbers from time to time if an account of mine gets hacked, but I have physical possession of every phone that I have listed on any account of mine. I have more than one for my safety.
My signature I singed with digital ink to create a personal logo for this year.
I photographed the u S flag to remind all I am a US citizen born in the state of Georgia, with all civil liberties especially first amendment freedom of Press, to worship GOD;, to protest governments and to associate or not with those I please too.
This is my hand on one of my christian cross necklaces to remind all I am born again Christian and adhere to the Holy Bible as my instruction book on how to live, and how to please GOD; and how to get to heaven after I did [which I am not planning to do any time soon!]
