|Anxiety portrait by Gloria Poole aka Gloria; surreal painting; 2013 in oils on canvas|
This is an oil painting on canvas, that I Gloria Poole, painted to attempt to show with surreal art, the stress and anxiety really old people feel if they do not have good family support. I suppose this is sort of modeled after a man who was my neighbor when I was a child, and whose wife died about 20 yrs before he did, and who seemed sort of lost whenever I would go his house to say hello to him. It is sort of as I remember he looked; but he died when I was in high school so I don't think it's exactly like him but he did have a shock of white hair. Obviously this painting was sitting lop-sided on my chair as I photographed it. I didn't realize it until I had added it to this blog. The light green places represent threats/ fears he had and that I know as Registered Nurse that all very old people experience. You can figure out the eyes.
Also, I added batches of the ethnic paintings I painted over time span of 2006-present to several other blogs of mine yesterday. You might enjoy seeing those. Each blog is unique and each contains art I created all through-out archives as well. Visit those sites of mine at:
