|One of ethnic paintings I Gloria Poole, painted. It's North Korean oil on canvas.|
This is one of the ethnic paintings I painted in the past few weeks to be included in the ethnic series of paintings that I began in yr 2007. This is oil on canvas size 16 x 20 I think --didn't measure it, and the blank canvases were a gift to me for my birthday from my oldest daughter Jennifer. And I painted them all up quickly because I had been drawing sketches and cartooning for a while & wanted a change of pace.
I have painted about 26 ethnic paintings in all now including the six in the past month. Many of them have been posted on the web in other places. I hope someday to display all of them in one room or gallery. Also, note, that the paintings are not of real people. I paint them from my head in most cases. Sometimes, I use a costume I saw on a thumbnail in magazine as the clothing, but I do not try to paint real people as a general rule. Part of that is my concern about making "graven images' which is forbidden in Bible.
Also, I added another oil painting of ethnic series that I painted in that same batch to my blog tonite, at http://gloriapoole.blogspot.com. I add my photos of art I create intermittently to a variety of blogs. I added some blogs just for cartooning & all who have seen those, also like them. One of them is http://cartooning-by-gloriapoole.blogspot.com.
