Pyramid lighthouse to guide travelers idea sketched by Gloria Poole of Missouri and Georgia

"Pyramid lighthouse" sketch by Gloria Poole of Missouri 9 Oct 2014 ; acrylic and tempra on 14 x 17 paper.

I, Gloria Poole, RN, artist, of Missouri and Georgia,  read the news from all over the world. And I especially love the @BBC news photos of people in costume, festivals and travel destinations. In fact, I love all major news agencies' photos of those events. I sometimes draw from those photos while sitting at my computer. I saw news photos and also TV documentaries in which people in countries where deserts are, walkabout and sometimes get caught in snow storms and get lost. I had an idea that a lighthouse could be and should be built in those deserts to guide those travelers. This morning I illustrated my idea, since lighthouses could be built onto existing pyramids to guide travelers lost in sand storms. 

Lighthouses have always fascinated me ever since I visited my grandparents [when I was a child] on the coast of Georgia and saw the St Simons Island lighthouse. I lived on St Simons Island , GA for a year and it is a  wonderful way of life.  I have created about 10 sketches of lighthouses and four oil paintings on canvas of lighthouses;  and posted some of them to this blog and to other blogs of mine including and and maybe other blogs of mine also, See the about me page on my gloriapoole.blogspot blog. 

The idea of how to solve the problem of people in countries with deserts getting lost in sand storms has weighed on my mind for a while. In year 2013,  I sketched this idea of a person in the wind with dirt blowing about and getting in her face. This is not a real person. By the way, the couple in the previous sketch is also not real people.  You can see the tempra [bright blue] and other paints on the table behind this sketch that I photographed on my not so portable drawing table. 

I also had the idea that those countries with deserts and monsoons should build giant  funnels to funnel the monsoon rains into silos to hold the water and purify it to end the year round droughts. 

This sketch and illustration and ideas of mine that are my original ideas are intended to help arid countries and I pray it does.

Also remember I have never created a Facebook nor a Pinterest account and have never authorized anyone to use my real name or my art in any way with few exceptions that were in the form of a bill of sales in which I received money for a sketch or painting; and or a contract to display art I created; and one situation in which I settled a ten thousand dollar debt with an oil painting I painted in year 2006 . See the copyright notice below for more details. 

Also, remember that I have a landline telephone in Missouri and I have unlisted numbers on it as well. I also have cell phones. I am not secretive but I have to be cautious about providing my contact info because my 2nd exhusband who is male DBP made many threats to "track me down and kill me" and I have no intention of allowing that to happen. 

Also today, I put another sketch of a foal and it's mama, that  I created last evening on another blog of mine at

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

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.
