Royals of Europe sketched by Gloria Poole of Missouri and Georgia

I, Gloria Poole, of Missouri and Georgia, am putting 3 sketches I drew, painted, signed,in past few days,photographed and uploaded  to this blog of mine. These are copyrighted images so read full copyright and statement below sketches.  The people in these 3 sketches are real, living, Monarchs of Europe and are not made up by me, but drawn in pencil and then painted with acrylic paint on paper  by me from photos.  But remember most of my ethnic series of sketches and paintings are NOT real people but people created by me with a pencil and brush. I want to make sure all understand the difference. Also, below each sketch I have identified the real, living person I was attempting to "capture" the likeness of on paper with pencils, brushes and paint. Also, because I was drawing from the news photos, some items like jewelry were not always clearly seen so I improvised them a bit, trying to draw what appeared as vague. So, in other words, the jewelry on the Queens is not precise [and nothing on these sketches is precise likeness ]. Also, remember that the hand-writing you see on the edges is my own notes to myself as I was drawing from images on a computer in real time and wanting to replicate as closely as possible their authentic clothing and accessories so I wrote notes to help me remember the fabrics, hair styles, facial features . I did not attempt to draw the lines in Queen Elizabeth's suit  and have not yet acquired the skills to accurately paint metals in jewelry or fabrics, but I keep practicing. For the royals, I hope you approve of these.

Updated copyright since 5-April-2014:Copyright Notice: I, Gloria Poole, residing in Missouri but born in state of Georgia, own this blog and all rights to it. I created it to begin with, years ago [but modified last year] , and have continued it after I moved to Missouri Oct 31, 2009.  I own all rights to this blog and to all content of it. I created the art and signed it, that I put on it,and photographed it;and uploaded it to this blog. I have the original paintings and sketches.  I also own all rights to any art, words, graphics  I have created or do create in any place, for any reason or no reason, with any tool or method or brush  on any surface, at any time. I have never assigned my copyrights to any one and I do not have an artist's rep or a literary agent at this time and have never had either [in the past].  I sign my name on art as Gloria, and on some sketches as Gloria Poole. Gloria Poole is my real, born with, legal name since I resumed it legally after my 2nd divorce which was in Arapahoe County Colorado. I removed the Pappas name from my name forevermore by order of District Court Judge at time of final decree of divorce from male DBP in Oct 2007 who lives in Colorado; and I resumed my maiden name including my surname of Poole. I moved to Missouri on Oct 31, 2009.  I am also known on the web as; gloriapoole; Gloria as on art such as this which I signed when I  completed it; gloria.poole; gloria-poole; gloria0817; gpoole817; gloria_poole; gloriapoole1749; gloriapoole.RN; gloriapooleRN at yahoo in which the RN means standard abbreviation for Registered Nurse; and as artist-gloria; artist-gloriapoole; gloriapoole-paintings; Poole, Gloria; Ms. Gloria Poole; Gloria Poole creator of words that WORK and Tapestry of LIFE;   and as other variations of my real, born with, legal name of Gloria Poole. And I am known as G-L-O-R-I-A on and I had three domains with much art I created with my name written that way, for about 6 yrs until they were stolen from me by cyberthugs.  I also had many domains and many with my very name written as gloriapoole in them from years 2004-2011 when criminals broke into my web-hosting accounts and ripped my domains and content right out-of-admin-panel.  I have not bought domains since , because there is no security on web-hosting 'packages" because  they do not honor business law or contract laws or any laws that I can tell since web-hosting companies do not try to stop cyber-criminals. 
For the record: I am white, single again [divorced twice], woman with brown hair, Southern Baptist Christian, and the mother of two grown "children" who are daughters named Jennifer and Leigh. I am also a Registered Nurse licensed in Missouri; and an artist in all artists' mediums; and a blogger, tweeter, poet, author of children's book, and citizen journo; and photographer. I was born in the state  of Georgia and am a US citizen by birth so I have all Constitutional protections including the First Amendment right to publish, speak, write, protest and the right not to associate with ungodly in general and  atheist perverts in particular, or with violent murderous people or with alcoholics or with d-r-ug-a-d-d-ic-t-s [spelled to try avoid being labeled as wrong sort of person by political censorship on the prowl]. Also, for the record [for purposes of copyright and law enforcement {because several facets of my identity such as state of Georgia issued ID were stolen from me more than once and they were in tangible form}], I am not an employee of anyone, and Gloria Poole is my real, born with, legal name {but I have a middle Christian, given name at birth also that I never write as part of my signature}; and I draw, paint, sketch, photograph, tweet, blog , write from my own private apartment in Missouri, which is NOT shared with anyone. I work for myself in other words from my home studio-office which is a dedicated room for that purpose. I think the criminal who stole my GA ID and my Holy Bible with my name printed on it, cut my photo out of the ID and inserted his accomplice's photo which is how it was used to access bank and credit union accounts of mine that began in Colorado. I lived in Colorado only a few yrs and was married a second time there for only 4 yrs and ten months before final decree of divorce from male DBP there. both divorces of mine are public record--one in Georgia and one in Colorado. I moved to Missouri on Oct 31, 2009 to the same apt I am creating this blog from, which is my only residence.  I have NEVER had blond hair even as a tiny child. Both of my daughters were very blond up until college, but their hair is also darker more like mine now. But I know for certain that one of the accomplices of DBP who lives in Colorado dyes her hair a platinum [false looking] blond because she's old and gray- headed if hair not dyed blond. That is a statement of fact relevant to an on-going investigation into who is using my name and identity. I have been reported as blond yet I have NEVER been blond and NEVER dyed my hair. If you see my selfie from 15-March-2014 on about me page, you see the slight grey tendrils at my temples in my brown hair. I reason I earned them! And I'm keeping them.Also, for statement of fact because I am not subject to censorship by any group or organization: I am a private U.S. citizen with First Amendment liberties and I am not an employee of anyone and do not have not-for-profit status and never did. I draw, paint, sketch, photograph and upload from my own private apartment for my own purposes. No one is authorized to log into any account of mine anywhere but me.
