I just finished this oil painting today. I have not given it a name yet. I took a week to paint it and it tried my patience to a degree, because I couldn't quite get the pose of the horse right. But here is my this year's [ 6 April 2015} contribution [of art to the world] of the annual horse races in the spring, of the Kentucky Derby, Preakness, Grand National. I painted this with the owner of horse riding it and not the pro jockey that rides in the race. The owner is not a real person. In fact, none of these "persons" in this art are exactly as any real, living human person but were created entirely by me with paint. This is 18 x 24 oil on canvas.
This is also an oil painting I painted In Jan 2015 and I named it "practicing for race" . It is also on 18 x 24 inch canvas
This is the jumping horse sketch I painted in 2014.
This is the sketch I painted and named "Kentucky bluegrass" and it is on other blogs of mine also.
This is my sketch of the Preakness in NY, that I painted last year.
This is the sketch I painted of a horse in full run, that I created in Feb 2015.
This is my sketch I painted and named "jumping and dressage" in April 2014.
This is the sketch as it looks after I repainted it and named it jockey standing on horse in May 2014.
This is the sketch of a professional jockey riding in race that I created in 2013.
This is my copyright notice for this blog.
This is my signature as it signed it on an oil painting years ago. I am adding it to this blog because some people do not think I am the same white Christian, single again woman who signed this in red paint, but I am, and the painting I signed that on, is owned by my youngest daughter Leigh who has it. But obviously my signature belongs to me and I can use it any way I like. I quit putting my neon green digital signature on blogs because criminals tried to "hook" it to try to control my blogs. Of course, you see this same signature at the top of this blog of mine. nd also on other blogs of mine including https://sites.google.com/site/gloriapoole.
Update to remind all that I have other blogs that I primarily post art that I create too, also. I intended to make this blog a MINI EXHIBIT of art I create, and to leave each post up longer so people everywhere can see it. I post art I create also to these blogs of mine and create each one by one:
https://cartooning-by-gloriapoole.blogspot.com; #cartoons including a complete story I wrote and illustrated named "The Lady Bugs that give picnics"
https://sites.google.com/site/PooleGloria [simple #cartoons I made
and other sites and blogs that I own and create one by one also and that I add art to occasionally to illustrate a point, so any one wanting to see the full gamut of art I have created and posted to web would have to look at every blog of mine on any topic going back to about year 2006 and through archives also.
Also, for the record, all telephones associated with this blog and indeed with any blog of mine that are actually MY handsets/my accts that I pay for; and that I myself added to my blogs [and criminal-hackers didn't] are my personal phones and are physically located in my apt in MISSOURI in the USA.Some are landline telephones and some are cell phones, and some are google voice numbers, and I rotate them around as necessary to prevent criminals from stalking me.
This is my signature as I signed it on the old painting "four children on the lawn" which I think is posted to my blog at https://gloriapoole.blogspot.com. I am adding it here to confirm I am the same white, unmarried [twice divorced] Christian woman who began this blog years ago, and morphed it after I moved to Missouri in Oct 2009. It is a bit fuzzy because I put it into that ellipse on purpose.
This is one of my photos of the U S flag I photographed on walkabout to remind all I am U S citizen and have all Constitutional protections including the first amendment. It is necessary to add this statement intermittently to my blogs because cyber-criminals that LOOK AS IF they could be from another country broke into an online album of mine and into 2 cell phones of mine and tried to hijack them, [recently].
Also, I am leaving this post up for a while yet, because spring is the season of the horse races in several places around the world.
All telephones associated with this blog and its underlying account belong to me Gloria Poole personally and are physically located in my apt in Missouri except when I walkabout. But of course, my landline telephone does not go along with me on walkabouts! Also, for the record, all symbols that represent me on this blog or any blog still represent me.
This is my selfie of me in spring 2014 but I look exactly the same. I still put my hair in a lop-sided pony tail when I walkabout or paint to keep hair from getting in my face or paint.
This is a christian cross of mine to remind all that this is a Christian website and that I am a Southern Baptist christian woman who adheres closely to the Holy Bible.

Gloria Poole, RN, artist; at my apt in Missouri on 6 April 2015 at 6:27pm.Update on 19 April 2015 by me Gloria Poole,RN, artist of Missouri to add in fact that I have other blogs that include art I made [for provenance and copyright issues] and to add in U S flag since cyber-criminals made an effort to try to ruin me by posting unknown to me persons'[ multiple] photos into an album with my very name on it, and they posted a few photos of dilapidated slum-like houses also, that I had never seen before until I googled my own name to find a photo I had photographed & posted on the web. It was a shock to me to see the faces of people I didn't know who used my REAL name to try to promote themselves with what I suppose was photos of themselves and their slum like house [where?] and of the leader they admired [but that I despise!}. So, in an effort to document these events, I am reminding all that I am a white woman, Registered Nurse, am artist in all mediums, am photographer, writer, author, cartoonist, illustrator all for my own purposes. I do not have "boss" and have not had any boss since year 2003 when I worked for a hospital. Most of my work experience is as RN for medical facilities. I did learn to draw formally and I learned to paint from a tech school course on mixing paint and was first taught by my mother's sister in Virginia years ago. Cyber-criminals cannot authorized themselves to use my real name nor add their photos to my online albums. /s/ Gloria Poole, RN,artist; Missouri 19 April 2015 at 2:26pm.
