Ethnic series sketches created by Gloria

These are some of the ethnic series sketches that I, Gloria Poole, created when I lived in Colorado at zip code 80203 from May 2007-Oct 2009. These are copyrighted photos of actual, tangible sketches that I own and have posession of. I labeled them beneath each sketch. I drew, painted, signed, photographed and uploaded all of these myself and in fact, all art on this blog and I own the copyright. I, Gloria Poole, live in Missouri since Oct 2009.

This sketch above is supposed to be Puerto-Rican named "Rafael" but it is NOT a real man.
This sketch is one that I named "Asian teacher"/
I drew this from a thumb nail photo I saw in a dictionary I think. I draw often by holding a photo and looking at is as I draw. I named this "British Man in India".
I created this sketch by trying to imitate a famous painting but if you compare the famous painting with this sketch you will see that I altered my version so it is not exact replica. I drew it by looking at a photo of famous painting in an art book. I named it "Dutch lady".
I drew this of Afghanistan Pres Karzai when he was in the news and I saw his photo on computer, and sat at computer and drew it from the screen [drew it I did not have a printer or the use of a printer in those years and I never print other people's photos or art work. ]

I drew this and named it Russian woman wearing what I think is called a babushka.
I drew this of a Chinese man with one of the same techniques already told about. But remember that if the photo I am drawing from is a real, living person,who is a PRIVATE not public persona such as an elected official or Monarch then I alter the face so it looks different so private people would not suddenly find themselves on my blog!].
I created this sketch and named it "tribesman". I make an effort to replicate natural costumes and I look for authentic sources [news, magazines, photos, etc] to do that. In about 3 cases the so-called costume was nakedness so I put clothes on them or only drew from neck ,shoulders up.
.This sketch above is my attempt to draw the then French Pres Sarkozy and I made notes as I drew the basics so I could remember how to paint it later. I saw him in the news and drew it while sitting at my computer looking at his photo in the news.
This sketch above is my effort to draw a Scandinavian lady and I admit it is not a very good sketch. They seem to be much more whitish-blonde than this sketch [ I have not seen very many in news that I could say definitely 'oh that is a Scandinavian' ].
This sketch is my rendition of a Jewish man who was called "Semitic" in the source I was looking at.
I drew this Indian from a missionary magazine. I hesititated to draw and paint this because of the pipe, because I do not promote tobacco use in any way. I realized it was part of the authentic native appearance and so decided to include it. I met a few native Indians when I lived in Colorado and they did all seem to smoke [and drink alcohol and they said it's a big problem on their reservations].
I drew this sketch from an authentic source but I drew it because of the hairstyle and because her skin tone was different but I do not know the origin of it.
i drew and painted this Japanese lady in a kimona most likely from a missionary magazine.
I drew and painted this sketch because I liked the yellow turban . Of all ethnic groups and tribes I think I have created the most from Africa because their clothing is very different and very colorful. And also because Africa is the second biggest continent on earth and has many tribes and ethnic groups . I had the goal of painting a sketch or oil painting of every culture/tribe/ethnic group on earth but there are hundreds of them. I have created hundreds of sketches and you can see some of them in my Picasa albums named ethnic series.

I drew this and painted it from a travel scene if I remember correctly.
I drew and painted this as the preliminary sketch for th oil painting that I painted later and modified a good bit and named "The Scotsman" that I have displayed in several places including on

This is the preliminary sketch I drew and painted for the oil painting I later painted and named "Jake, the Irish man'.
I drew and painted this sketch for Oktoberfest in Germany. I was born in the state of Georgia and in the North Georgia mountains we also have Octoberfest and the people wear costumes similar so I was familiar with this costume.
This is my signature that I painted on this paper palette as a personal logo to add to my blogs that I post art I create too. I am adding some of the art I created when I lived in Colorado as a batch because I have continued the blog I began in my former married name at https:/; and though I removed the Pappas name from my name by court order at time of final divorce decree from male DBP in Oct 2007, the art I created in Colorado is still mine AND I still own the copyrights to any and all art I created anywhere unless I signed a bill of sale that was notarized, or in some official way transferred the copyright. I have only given the copyright of art I created to somebody else twice before and it was for art to be exhibited in museums in state of Georgia. I have never signed away my copyrights en masse to anyone and neither my 2nd exhusband DBP nor his lawyer was ever authorized as having power of attorney over me or my life or my art. Read following for more info.

I drew, painted, signed, photographed and uploaded all art on this blog and on any blog of mine.

For the record and to establish provenance of art I have already created also: the art I have created and signed and posted to this blog of mine is part of an on-going series of art I created since year 1991 beginning in Atlanta, GA that "blossomed" in year 2005 in Aurora, Colorado when I lived there for one year [May 2006-May 2007], and art began to really become an integral part of my efforts to save the baby humans from premeditated destruction. In 2005, I began to realize I could use the art to illustrate my talking points in some cases, and to build a secondary "career' for me as artist. In the year 2006 when I had endured and lived to tell about it a violent crash down a flight of stairs and had trauma, fractures, concussion, because my then-husband DBP tried to kill me to 'make it look like an accident" and he tried to twist off my broken leg, I had immobility for months except on crutches and walking boot after surgery to repair fractures and implant metal. As I sat with leg propped up I began to draw daily and paint to occupy the time and my mind. I also began to post art to the web on my blogs and websites, and also photographs I had photographed. I began a series of art then that is named "ethnic series by Gloria" [me] to attempt to draw and paint an art work of every ethnic group tribe, language, culture in the world and I created eight initial oil paintings in the first batch and posted them to the web on domains of mine. I moved from Aurora to zip code 80203 for 2 and 1/2 years and then moved to Missouri on Oct 31, 2009 with the art I had in my possession at that time. I paint some of the sketches I created in do-overs into oils on canvas and those are very visible on the web. I put many of them on my mini exhibit of art at, and also on my Picasa albums at

I, Gloria Poole, am a white, Southern Baptist Christian, brown-haired woman, single-again, twice-divorced,natural mother of only two children who are grown daughters named Jennifer and Leigh, and also a republican, personhood promoter, prolife activist-blogger, photographer, artist in all mediums, poet, author, illustrator, cartoonist, writer, University of Georgia alumna, U S citizen born in the state of Georgia [but I lived in several places including New York, UK briefly, Nebraska, South Carolina, Colorado, Virginia, North Carolina], former TV producer,tweeter, Registered Nurse licensed in Missouri [but before that in Georgia, UK, other states], owner/writer for words that WORK, and Tapestry of LIFE, photographer, and citizen journo . Gloria Poole is my real, born with legal name and I resumed my full maiden name including my surname of Poole legally by Court order at the time of divorce from male DBP in Colorado in Oct, 2007 at Centennial, Colorado; and I also removed the Pappas name from my name forevermore at the time of final decree in Oct 2007 . I was glad to end that four year horrible marriage of multiple trauma and injuries to me caused by male DBP, [which I testified about in Court on several occasions ]. That second divorce is public record in the state of Colorado, and my first divorce is public record in the state of Georgia. I have created art regularly since 1991, and I had formal training in drawing and in mixing colors /paint and painting in oils and I post much of the art I create on blogs of mine. You can see some of that art on one of my name blogs at and see the about me page of that blog for the list of art blogs I own and post art too, that are all different. .
