5 sketches of Edie Brickell made by Gloria Poole, RN, artist of / in Missouri on 6 June 2015

This is sketch number 5 that I drew in ink yesterday while looking at singer Edie Brickell on youtube. I painted this sketch with powdered pastels. I made a series of sketches of her to see if I could "capture" her image and personality in art form. I did this because of her song with Steve Martin accompanying on banjo of "Remember me this way" to a painter to paint her portrait. And also because of their song "Love has come to you" that is really a great #prolife song. Since I advocate for the right to life, I wanted a way to thank them for that song. So the inspiration is from the other song, "painter paint my portrait" and I am making efforts to do that for both singer Edie Brickell and also for Steve Martin. I can only focus on one subject at time and started with singer Edie because of the words of the song. These sketches are preliminary sketches intended to help me define how I want an oil painting to look. I realize in the song "remember me this way", she asked for "horses and house in the background and children all around". I have to think on that some to think on composition of it. But here are the five sketches I made yesterday and early this morning 6th June 2015. I drew this in ink first then I painted with acrylics and is 8 x 11 on paper. I put these out-of-sequence because I wanted to put the two sketches that I think most "captures" her first. I signed it, photographed it, uploaded it and put it on this blog of mine as is true of all of these sketches and indeed all art on this blog of mine . Also if you scroll to the sketch labeled as sketch 1 you will see that I wrote notes to myself in the margin so when I painted it I had way to jog memory of how she appears in video. I used five different combinations of mediums in these sketches which often helps me decide how it will look in oils.

This is sketch 2 I drew in ink then painted it with acrylics. I put various background and "clothing" experimenting with what looks best to be "the brightest clothes in town " which I think is words of their song. It is also 8 x 11 on paper.

This is sketch 3 that I drew first in ink of Edie Brickell from watching her perform on video. I painted it with watercolor. It is also 8 x 11 on paper.

This is sketch 4 I drew in ink and painted of Edie Brickell and I painted this one with chalk pencils, which is a medium I have used only twice in my life! So, it was an experiment for certain. It is also 8 x 11 on paper.

This is sketch 1 that I drew quickly yesterday in ink of singer Edie Brickell. I realized it was not a good likeness so tried four more times. I put this one last in the series because I wanted people to see it in proper perspective since it was to do-over. It is 8 x 11 on paper in polychrome and pencils. I drew all of these while their video was on my computer screen and I drew by stopping the frame to see it as a still. A do-over sketch is to an artist what a practice session in recording studio is to a singer. And a sketch is to a finished painting as a practice session is to a concert or recording onto permanent media is to a singer or band.

This is my copyright notice for this post and all content, all words I wrote [all of them], all art that I made [which is all on this blog] and all photos that I photographed which is all that appear on this blog.

This is a personal logo of sorts that I made to remind world that I also do other things and that some of those things are controversial [such as promoting #personhood for humans in the womb] and that I am also a Registered Nurse for real, licensed in the state of Missouri and before that in the state of Georgia and other states also. I have posted seals of my alma maters x 2 on this blog before and don't have to include them in every post. I have also posted selfies of me as artist, RN, etc on this blog and on the "about me" page so I include those by reference. And other symbols/ photos that define me so see the about me page and other posts if want to know more about me Gloria Poole.

Also, I am STILL a single-again,twice-divorced, WHITE, Southern US citizen, born again Christian WOMAN. Nothing I change about my environment changes those fact. See the about me page for more information about me and some of the selfies that are me over time since I began creating blogs. All telephone numbers associated with this account are my personal phones and are located in my apt in Missouri. I never had a 678 ph number and I never had a 245 area code phone number. Those are area codes of the numbers of criminals who broke into my accounts.

This is one of my christian cross necklaces that I own, and wear at times and my left hand to remind all that I am Southern Baptist, born again, Christian, woman and adhere to the words of JESUS as The Messiah foretold by Old Testament.

Since I am a #prolife #Christian who takes seriously the commandment in Matthew 28: 18-20, KJV, I make an effort regularly to publish the gospel in some way, to promote the prolife cause and to be a good representative of Christianity. Being a good Christian does not mean turning a blind eye to sin, however, as some fake christians believe. It is not loving to stand by idly while people go to hell.
So you can read about JESUS THE MESSIAH and how to be born again and get to heaven on this blog of mine:

This is my GBH College of Nursing seal where I attended and graduated as a professional nurse and then became licensed by the state of Georgia years ago. I still have a R.N. license but I cannot work in it because of concussions and trauma to me so I post info to try help public on the web on the #prolife, #personhood #publichealth causes.

This is the UGA display I made by using appliques I cut from the UGA book /news they mailed to me as an alum, to remind all I also have a degree in business from the University of Georgia .

Photo I photographed to remind all that I am U S citizen by birth in the state of Georgia.

This is my photo of U S flag I photographed on walkabout a few days ago to remind all I am U S citizen in the U S state of Missouri but I was born in the state of Georgia. I have all Constitutional protections including the first amendment.

This is my most recent selfie.
