"Russian" sketch 2 by Gloria Poole yr 2009 

I, Gloria Poole, residing in Missouri but born in the state of Georgia in the U S, drew, painted, signed, photographed and uploaded all of these sketches of Russians I saw either on TV, in the news on web, in magazines or missions news but I altered their faces and physical appearance so they are not identical to photos if the photos are of private persons. I did try to replicate the costumes and authentic clothing  to a degree . I met some Russians when I volunteered wit the Friendship Force in Atlanta, GA and I liked them. They were kind to me and very curious about the U.S. My duty was to meet them at Hartsfield International airport and walk them through the airport to their connecting flight.  After that, I visited a Russian Orthodox church in Gwinnett County and then attended a meeting with the Atlanta-Tbsili sister cities group. I also like Russia's President Putin for his bold and uncompromising stand against sodomy and homosexuality in Russia. So, these are some of the sketches I drew when I saw photos marked clearly as Russian over time span 2007-2014 present. I have made a conscious effort to draw and paint, sketch the major ethnic groups and continents but there are many many more to do in my mission to paint an oil painting representing every ethnic group, tribe, nation of the world.
