Magnolia sketch number 4 and pencil drawing by Gloria Poole of Missouri and Georgia

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, scroll through archives because I have put a ton of art I created on that blog for YEARS.

"rough sketch in pencil" by Gloria Poole of Missouri ; 2-April-2014
This second sketch is a pencil drawing on paper that I drew as a rough draft preliminary sketch of an idea. I am adding it here because I always draw free-hand and sometimes I refine the sketches and sometimes I paint them and photograph them and upload them. I will most likely improve this sketch later and paint it and rephotograph it.

Copyright Notice: I, Gloria Poole, residing in Missouri but born in state of Georgia, own this blog and all rights to it. I created it to begin with, years ago [but modify it intermittently] , and have continued it after I moved to Missouri Oct 31, 2009.  I own all rights to this blog and to all content of it. I created the art and signed it, that I put on it,and photographed it;and uploaded it to this blog. I have the original paintings and sketches.  I also own all rights to any art, words, graphics  I have created or do create in any place, for any reason or no reason, with any tool or method or brush  on any surface, at any time. I have never assigned my copyrights to any one and I do not have an artist's rep or a literary agent at this time and have never had either [in the past].  I sign my name on art as Gloria, and on some sketches as Gloria PooleGloria Poole is my real, born with, legal name since I resumed it legally after my 2nd divorce which was in Arapahoe County Colorado. I removed the Pappas name from my name forevermore by order of District Court Judge at time of final decree of divorce from male DBP in Oct 2007 who lives in Colorado; and I resumed my maiden name including my surname of Poole. I moved to Missouri on Oct 31, 2009.  I am also known on the web as; gloriapoole; Gloria as on art such as this which I signed when I  completed it; gloria.poole; gloria-poole; gloria0817; gpoole817; gloria_poole; gloriapoole1749; gloriapoole.RN; gloriapooleRN at yahoo in which the RN means standard abbreviation for Registered Nurse; and as artist-gloria; artist-gloriapoole; gloriapoole-paintings; Poole, Gloria; Ms. Gloria Poole; Gloria Poole creator of words that WORK and Tapestry of LIFE;   and as other variations of my real, born with, legal name of Gloria Poole. And I am known as G-L-O-R-I-A on and I had three domains with much art I created with my name written that way, for about 6 yrs until they were stolen from me by cyberthugs.  I also had many domains and many with my very name written as gloriapoole in them from years 2004-2011 when criminals broke into my web-hosting accounts and ripped my domains and content right out-of-admin-panel.  I have not bought domains since , because there is no security on web-hosting 'packages" because  they do not honor business law or contract laws or any laws that I can tell since web-hosting companies do not try to stop cyber-criminals.

For the record: I am white, single again [divorced twice], woman with brown hair, Southern Baptist /Great commission *Christian, and the mother of two grown "children" who are daughters named Jennifer and Leigh. I am also a Registered Nurse licensed in Missouri; and an artist in all artists' mediums; and a blogger, tweeter, poet, author of children's book, and citizen journo; and photographer.

Also, for the record: I have other blogs that I put art I create on and each blog is different;  and some of those are: [ a cartooning site];
And I have blogs that are primarily about the prolife cause and or spreading the gospel, and each blog is different with different content on any given day,  that I put art I create on, from time to time, and those are: : It's all about ending abortion;
*Footnote: the words of JESUS as recorded in Matthew 28: 18-20, KJV are called the "great commission" because JESUS tells all his followers to tell all the world what HE has told them.
Gloria Poole; at my apt in Missouri which is my only residence and which is not shared; 2- March-2014 at 10:00am.
Update on 3 April 2014 at 2:51pm by me Gloria Poole because I had to reset my password and security two days in row. So I am adding this as my way of identifying this site as one of my blogs that I have had for about 8 years. This is not a shared blog nor a shared apartment nor a shared isp account nor a shared name. Gloria is my real name and the numbers have significance and it is the way I wrote my name on some blogs and sites of mine since about 2003.  I, Gloria Poole, of Missouri and Georgia , painted this 'signature" to use as my header but cyber-hackers at remote enlarged it to poster size, so I am putting it here to identify this as my blog. Also, reminder that I am a US citizen born in the state of Georgia and am not an employee of anyone, but blog, paint, sketch, draw from my own private apt in Missouri for my own goals and purposes. there is no one else authorized to log in to any account of mine on the web but ME!
