Southern Baptist Church band sketch by Gloria Poole of Missouri and Georgia

Southern Baptist Church band sketch by Gloria Poole of Missouri and Georgia; 11-April-2014 ; acrylic paint on paper.
This sketch is the one I drew, re-drew parts of it, painted, signed and photographed and uploaded all today. I spent hours this morning trying to create a believable scene and several pretend people.  If you have ever been to Southern Baptist churches in U S, you know they almost always have a choir that has a Director who reads music and holds practices each week. And those that don't have a choir, usually have some sort of band ensemble to make a joyful noise. All age groups are welcome in the band usually but of course the choirs are a bit different because of late night practices at churches. 

Also, on the topic of Southern Baptist churches, I know they recently changed their name or added a moniker of the Great Commission Baptist from the scriptures in Matthew 28:18-20.  Of course, anyone who follows me on twitter, or reads the words I write on my blogs, knows that I am Southern Baptist Christian and a believer in THE LIVING LORD JESUS and The Holy Bible. I prefer the language of the King James Holy Bible.

This is the 5th sketch I have created of musical instruments. I sang in a church choir some as a teenager; and also in my high school chorus and went on tour with them. That was obviously long ago, but from both of those I learned to read music some, and to sing. I still love to sing and I love music that is not mere screaming and jumping around, but has words that make sense and tell a truth or that are written by someone who has suffered and come through that alive and with the ability to still praise GOD; or written to persuade people to think differently.  Music is an integral part of my life but I noticed that I tend to only listen to music when my mind is too exhausted to think and I am physically restless. It calms me somehow. 

If you viewers are curious about the other sketches of musical instruments I drew and painted, I think one of them is on this same blog so scroll to find it to the March 2nd post named "mac n Sax". And the sketch I created signed photographed [as always] and named "Mollie's Bistro" is on my blog at  And I know the first sketch I created trying to teach myself to draw musical instruments that I am familiar with but had never drawn before is on another blog of mine: And I think there is also a sketch I created of a man playing a cello on my blog at The photo I photographed and use a s reference for a cello is on my blog in the Feb 25th post with sketches also in that post.

 And I put art I create on several blogs and usually I have a reason for selecting a particular blog at any given time. I do not conform my blogs but ceate them one by one, with original content. I love to draw and it also is soothing to me. Unless I am very exhausted, in which case, my sketches look awful and I have to re-do them later. 

Updated copyright since 9-April-2014:
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 modified last year] , 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 Poole. Gloria 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 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. I was born in the state  of Georgia and am a US citizen by birth so I have all Constitutional protections including the First Amendment right to publish, speak, write, protest and the right not to associate with ungodly in general and  atheist perverts in particular, or with violent murderous people or with alcoholics or with d-r-ug-a-d-d-ic-t-s [spelled to try avoid being labeled as wrong sort of person by political censorship on the prowl].
Also, for the record [for purposes of copyright and law enforcement {because several facets of my identity such as state of Georgia issued ID were stolen from me more than once and they were in tangible form}], I am not an employee of anyone, and Gloria Poole is my real, born with, legal name {but I have a middle Christian, given name at birth also that I never write as part of my signature}; and I draw, paint, sketch, photograph, tweet, blog , write from my own private apartment in Missouri, which is NOT shared with anyone. I work for myself in other words from my home studio-office which is a dedicated room for that purpose. I think the criminal who stole my GA ID and my Holy Bible with my name printed on it, cut my photo out of the ID and inserted his accomplice's photo which is how it was used to access bank and credit union accounts of mine that began in Colorado. I lived in Colorado only a few yrs and was married a second time there for only 4 yrs and ten months before final decree of divorce from male DBP there. both divorces of mine are public record--one in Georgia and one in Colorado. I moved to Missouri on Oct 31, 2009 to the same apt I am creating this blog from, which is my only residence.
 I have NEVER had blond hair even as a tiny child. Both of my daughters were very blond up until college, but their hair is also darker more like mine now. But I know for certain that one of the accomplices of DBP who lives in Colorado dyes her hair a platinum [false looking] blond because she's old and gray- headed if hair not dyed blond. That is a statement of fact relevant to an on-going investigation into who is using my name and identity. I have been reported as blond yet I have NEVER been blond and NEVER dyed my hair. If you see my selfie from 15-March-2014 on about me page, you see the slight grey tendrils at my temples in my brown hair. I reason I earned them! And I'm keeping them.
Also, statement of fact: I am not subject to censorship or employer laws. I am a private  US citizen by birth and draw, paint, photograph, blog, and tweet from my own private apartment. I always sign the art I create unless I have not finished it and plan to re-draw it or re-paint it.  I do not have not for profit and never did. I never applied for not for profit status for any LLC or LLP I created, nor for my name or art. I intend some day to make a profit! No one is authorized to log into any account of mine anywhere, but me. 

Also, the links and thumbnails you see to the right of these words are links to other blogs that I create and many of them have other art I created on them. Also, see my about me pages and profiles for more info about where to find art I create. And wile you're at it, see my 2014 selfie also.
