I, Gloria Poole, residing in Missouri but born in the state of Georgia, am adding 9 sketches I drew painted signed photographed and uploaded that are part of on-going series of art I have been creating since year 2006. I began the "ethnic series" of art when I live for a year from May 2006-May 2007 in Aurora, Colorado, then I moved to Denver Colorado zip code 80203 for 2 1/2 years, and then in Oct 31, 2009 I moved to Missouri. The history is relevant because a curator of a Museum that I communicated with, thought I still lived in Colorado. This is to clarify that [hopefully]. I do not have family, friends or agents of any sort, that live in Colorado, so no one there should be using my name or SSN or telephone numbers or emails or art for any reason.

I am still drawing and painting on all topics but intermittently on the ethnic series. I have some catching up to do one the ethnic oil paintings because many of the heads of State and Monarchs of Europe, the Middle East, Asia --everywhere really-- have changed since I painted most recent series in oils. I have another round of Kings and royals to post but want to add to it first. This batch is images of India. These are from photos I saw in the news. When the person was private [not in public office] I altered their faces some and did not try to make exact image of them. I did however, try to stick closely to their authentic clothing and colors.
You will see my notes to myself on some of these sketches in the margins of the paper. The first sketch is of Bollywood actress:
