3 Sketches made by Gloria Poole, RN,artist of /in Missouri

I drew this rose with chalk in one of my practice sessions using chalk. I have tried that intermittently for past few weeks, to try to improve my drawing skills. I decided it must be a good tool to practice with because it teaches to think about each stroke before drawing because it is difficult to completely erase chalk so if mess up, have to over-paint it with white acrylic. This is on 9 x 12 paper in my sketchbook. I drew this, signed it, photographed it, uploaded it and put it on this blog of mine, as is true of all art on this blog. Copyrighted.

This is my attempt to replicate a design I saw on Bonham's website, and I drew this with ink. On the Bonham's site, it was on a vase or something, and I saw it and liked the color of deep ruby red and tried to draw it from their photo while sitting at my computer. It is 8 x 11 on paper. It is not the entire design --just a portion of it. Copyrighted.

This is a chalk and ink drawing I made of moss on a tree. Moss grows along the coastal states in southeast U.S. I do not know whether it grows along the coastal places of the west coast. But on the east coast, it is very common especially on the islands off Brunswick that are St Simons, Jekyll and Sea Island. And also on Cumberland Island near the Georgia Florida border, where the Trident submarines are. Moss and island trees are very familiar sites to me that I saw often growing up in Georgia, where I was born. This is chalk and ink on 11 x 14 paper in my sketchbook. I drew this, signed it, photographed it, uploaded it and posted it to this blog of mine today 2 Sept, 2015. Copyrighted. of course, on a real tree, the moss would be everywhere but it usually only grows on one side of the tree. It also turns a greyish-white almost like a mountaineer's beard, over time. I didn't try to exactly draw the moss. I just wanted to see if I could draw something that resembled it. Copyrighted. . div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">

This is my selfie as I looked in year 2008 as I had just completed painting the oil painting ,"The Schloss" which is a huge oil painting that I have in my dining room in Missouri. That oil painting is visible in this selfie of me that I photographed with my cell phone.

My selfie [Gloria Poole,RN,artist of Missouri] in year 2011 in my apt in Missouri sitting before oil paintings I painted and named "ethnic series" of pretend people of all tribes, languages and customs, and blood lines. I have painted about 25 oil paintings in the #ethnicseries so far, and probably about 200-300 sketches of different ethnic tribes, cultures, costumes and languages. These sketches are a continuation of the ethnic series I began in year 2006 when I lived in Colorado. I have all of the actual series of ethnic series paintings and sketches that I created in tangible form. I moved to Missouri on Oct 31, 2009 with all possessions of mine that were not stolen en route to Missouri by moving company who seems to have allowed someone to plunder my belongings. You can see some of them in my online albums listed below and also in the archives of this blog.

This is my selfie of me in year 2014 but I look the same. I have not cut my hair yet and still wear it in a pony-tail sort of lop-sided and my hair is still brown.

This is one of my christian cross necklaces on one of my Bibles to show that I am a Southern Baptist , Bible believing Christian, woman, and adhere to the Holy Bible as my authority. You can read more about what Christians believe on this blog of mine:

The seal of Georgia Baptist College of Nursing which is one of my alma maters, where I graduated from nursing college years ago, and took state licensing boards in the state of Georgia, also years ago, and have a Registered Professional Nurse license in Missouri.

This is a display I made to show the world that I am also a graduate of the University of Georgia Terry College of Business and the symbols on this display I made are symbols known to be University of Georgia in Athens Georgia.

This is one of my photos of the U S flag that I photographed on walkabout to remind all that I am a US citizen born in the state of Georgia and therefore I have all protections of the U S Constitution including the first amendment. I do not have to censor my speech except as GOD requires, which means I do not take GOD's Name in vain, and I do not use profane words.
