Camel sketches and painting by Gloria Poole of Missouri and Georgia

"Camel keeper" sketch as it looks repainted with acrylics. Sketch drawn and painted by Gloria Poole of Missouri. See watercolor drawing of it  below this. This is not a real person in the sketch. Also, I signed this sketch when I drew it so I could photograph it, then signed it again when I repainted it in acrylics. The word under the clamp is acrylic.

Watercolor drawing free-hand [with watercolor pencils] by Gloria Poole  of "camel keeper" similar to a photo I saw on twitter, except that I totally changed the person in the photo to a pretend person.  I repainted this into acrylics to make it brighter and more permanent and that repainted version is the top photo. Sketch only on 9 x 12 inch paper.

Oil painting "Jacob dreams of heaven" in size 48 inch by 60 inches oil on canvas that I, Gloria Poole, painted in yr 2008 from the Bible story in Genesis 28:12, King James Holy Bible,  of Jacob falling asleep on a rock and dreaming of angels going up and down the ladder to heaven. I painted Jacob with a turban and praying with lifted up hands; and the angels as I thought a middle eastern Semite would imagine angels to look [similar to himself and his ethnic group.].  And if you read verse 13 in Genesis 28 you will see that GOD spoke to Jacob and promised him that "all the families of the earth [would]  be  blessed " in verse 14. I am Christian, but I know that JESUS quoted from and studied the Old Testament so I do also.  Behind it is another wall where I display paintings I painted and it is setting on the carpet on the floor in my apt but not in this same position as when I photographed it. I move paintings around from time to time, when I create a new batch. The round object between Jacob on ground and camel is supposed to be a campfire with embers only . 

This sketch was from a news photo and obviously it was not too good. The background 'camel" looks awful! And the foreground camel looks sort of sly, sneaky. I didn't intend that, so I don't think I ever displayed this before.  I think I was trying to remember the pose which is why the background camel looks so un-camel-like. Usually what I try to replicate from photos is the pose or the clothing or accessories of authentic people but not the people themselves unless they are "public figures" meaning someone in elected office, or so well known that their name is a household word, or a Monarch. I do not try to make exact images of private people that I see anywhere without their permission. So, I alter the person to a pretend person, changing the features a good bit. I draw often while watching TV or from watching computer news but I do not try to make exact images of news photos but using artistic license to change it.

I have never signed a blanket waiver of my copyrights to art I have created and do not have an artist's rep [agent], nor literary agent to represent me, and never did.  I drew,  painted, signed, photographed and uploaded all art on this blog and on any blog of mine.

For the record and to establish provenance of art I have already created also: the art I have created and signed and posted to this blog of mine is part of an on-going series of art I created since year 1991 beginning in Atlanta, GA that "blossomed"  in year 2005 in  Aurora, Colorado when I lived there for one year [May 2006-May 2007], and art began to really become an integral part of my efforts to save the baby humans from premeditated destruction. In 2005, I began to realize I could use the art to illustrate my talking points in some cases, and to build a secondary "career' for me as artist.  In the year 2006 when I had endured and lived to tell about it a violent crash down a flight of stairs and had trauma, fractures, concussion, because my then-husband DBP tried to kill me to 'make it look like an accident" and he tried to twist off my broken leg, I had immobility for months except on crutches and walking boot after surgery to repair fractures and implant metal. As I sat with leg propped up I began to draw daily and paint to occupy the time and my mind. I also began to post art to the web on my blogs and websites, and also photographs I had photographed. I began a series of art then that is named "ethnic series by Gloria" [me] to attempt to draw and paint an art work of every ethnic group tribe, language, culture in the world and I created eight initial oil paintings in the first batch and posted them to the web on domains of mine.  I moved from Aurora to zip code 80203 for 2 and 1/2 years and then moved to Missouri on Oct 31, 2009 with the art I had in my possession at that time. I paint some of the sketches I created  in do-overs into oils on canvas and those are very visible on the web. I put many of them on my mini exhibit of art at, and also on my Picasa albums at

 I, Gloria Poole, am a white, Southern Baptist Christian, woman, single-again, twice-divorced,natural mother of only two children who are grown daughters named Jennifer and Leigh, and also a republican, personhood promoter, prolife activist-blogger, photographer, artist in all mediums, poet, author, illustrator, cartoonist, writer, University of Georgia alumna, U S citizen born in the state of Georgia [but I lived in several places including New York, UK briefly, Nebraska, South Carolina, Colorado, Virginia, North Carolina], former TV producer,tweeter, Registered Nurse licensed in Missouri [but before that in Georgia, UK, other states], owner/writer for words that WORK, and Tapestry of LIFE, photographer, and citizen journo . Gloria Poole is my real, born with legal name and I resumed my full maiden name including my surname of Poole legally by Court order at the time of divorce from male DBP in Colorado in Oct, 2007 at Centennial, Colorado; and I also removed the Pappas name from my name forevermore at the time of final decree in Oct 2007 . I was glad to end that four year horrible marriage of multiple trauma and injuries to me caused by male DBP, [which I testified about in Court on several occasions ].  That second divorce is public record in the state of Colorado, and my first divorce is public record in the state of Georgia. I have created art regularly since 1991, and I had formal training in drawing and in mixing colors /paint and painting in oils and I post much of the art I create on blogs of mine. You can see some of that art on one of my name blogs at and see the about me page of that blog for the list of art blogs I own and post art too, that are all different. .
