I, Gloria Poole, residing in Missouri but born in the state of Georgia, am putting 2 photos I photographed of sketches I drew, painted, signed and photographed today. The first one is the finished painted sketch and is acrylic on paper 8 x 12 and I took closeup photo of it. The second photo is the preliminary drawing on same paper that I drew and painted in watercolors first, then repainted, then photographed from distance while it is on my portable drawing board.

I, Gloria Poole, of Missouri and Georgia, am putting two new sketches I completed today on this blog of mine. I tweeted yesterday that I was attempting to sketch again a magnolia blossom. They are one of my favorite flowers and the magnolia tree in full bloom is one of GOD's most awesome experiences because the blooms smell wonderful. I have tried several times to draw and paint magnolias. It is not easy for me to do. The petals are sort of waxy looking and a cream color. So far, I have not accomplished it my satisfaction but this is my most recent attempt. Michelango the famous artist who painted the Sistine Chapel ceiling [I am not catholic but know of most major artists' works] in his life story said that if you draw an object or image one hundred times you get good at it. So, this is about my fourth attempt to draw and then paint magnolias. You will be able to see the previous sketches I drew and painted and photographed on my blog at https://gloriapoole.blogspot.com, scroll through archives because I have put a ton of art I created on that blog for YEARS.
