Korean oil painting for ethnic series, by Gloria Poole; yr 2013; oil on canvas. It's interesting to note that this particular painting shows how my brain gets in a dizzy-tizzy at times, from concussions I had. Look at the thumb on this painting.  I turned it BACKWARDS and didn't realize it for a long time--just couldn't think it through which way thumb went. Concussions are like that .

"Chinese" sketch by Gloria Poole of Missouri; yr 2007

Asian sketch by Gloria Poole of Missouri in yr 2007.
I have always been sort of interested in China and Asia because I studied the lives of missionaries when I was a child in Girl's Auxiliary in the Southern Baptist Church in my native state of Georgia. The church I was a member of gave financial support to missionaries in China and we had a report back from them intermittently. I have tried many times to "capture" the uniqueness of their delicate facial features and eyes on paper with a variety of mediums on papers and canvas with brushes  and pens and pencils.  I drew these , painted, them, signed them, photographed them and uploaded them [as always] to this blog and any blog of mine.  I have these sketches  and oil paintings.  These are copyrighted images and most are on either my large easel or my portable drawing board. I am making conscious effort to draw and paint an image [or more than one] of every ethnic group/ class in the world. Ethnicity is a combination of blood lines, language spoken, color of skin [slightly yellow in Asian] and hair, mannerisms, culture. If you scroll back to the first post I put on this blog of mine, you will see my mission statement there for the ethnic series. I have many many more that I have already drawn and painted but not displayed and many many more still to do. 

Also, I realize that 2 of these were on the post I created on 4/17/2014. Usually I have more art than I can post and I try not to overlap but if I am grouping art, it happens. 

Also, you will enjoy art I  put on other blogs of mine, including:; [cartoons]; [cartoons]
and this may not be all that I put art I created on. I create art almost every day and I post it to one blog or another in time.  I draw and paint sketches trying to hone my skills enough to paint masterpieces as the "old Masters" artists did. I reason that world can enjoy them and maybe some day I will figure a way to make money with them. I am not an employee of anyone, fyi and "work' for myself in my own apt  with a studio in it.
