With this post, I, Gloria Poole, RN and artist and owner of this blog ,am resuming posting 3 ethnic series paintings and 4 ethnic sketches that I drew, painted, signed, photographed, uploaded to this blog. These are some of the sketches of pretend people from African countries. I did try to replicate authentic clothing to a degree from actual people I saw in news but changed their faces so not to embarrass real people who are private . Africa as a continent is huge, and has about 36 different countries in it. I think looking at map of it, that is bigger in land mass than the United States. Because I am adding 7 sketches at once, I cannot make the photos large . This is not all of the African sketches I have created for my ethnic series. These are copyrighted photos of actual tangible art I created and may not be reproduced, downloaded by anyone other than me, or reprinted in any way. See my copyright notice in full below.
