This is a sketch of a shoreline with granite instead of a beach and an overcast day. I have not tried to paint an overcast day before. I have tried to paint stormy skies however. This is 8 x 11 on paper with inktense and acrylic.
This is my second attempt in two days to paint with pigment mixed with soft wax. That is called encaustic in art history books. It's a fun technique because it creates textures naturally. I painted with a palette knife since I didn't want wax on my brushes. There is an entire set of tools for creating encaustic paintings that include an electrical hot plate sort of palette to melt wax and a wax melting pen which is also electrical. And wax with the pigment already in it that is commercial product. But I was mixing the soft wax of a candle on a separate palette with pure pigment to make the "paints". They are not liquid in this case but soft, sort of like wax from a candle when it has just melted and cooling. It's not a great sketch because I am not skilled at painting with a palette knife. I put the other encaustic sketch I made of a bird in flight on my http://gloriapoole-UK.livejournal.com on 1st July 2015.
This is my copyright notice I made today with another computer that I own for this blog and all content on it.
This is one of my personal logos that I made.
This is my left hand on one of my christian crosses to remind all that I am Southern Baptist, born again Christian and adhere to the King James Holy Bible that records the words of GOD THE FATHER and of JESUS THE MESSIAH. You can read more about JESUS The Messiah and how to be born again so you can go to heaven when you die, on this blog of mine: https://salvation-is-free.blogspot.com.
This is a reminder that I am a University of Georgia alumna from the Terry College of Business there.
This is a reminder that I am also a graduate of the Georgia Baptist College of Nursing [years ago] and am a Registered Nurse with a license in Missouri, but I first had a license in Georgia for years.
This is my latest selfie.
This is my most recent selfie but I still put my hair in lop-sided pony tail when I am painting or walking about or drawing with inks. It prevents hair from getting into my face or into paints or inks.
This is one of my photos of U S flag to remind all that I am U S citizen born in the state of Georgia and physically in the U S and have all Constitutional guarantees including the first amendment.
You can see more of the art I created on these blogs of mine that I create one by one:
and other sites, blogs and online albums that include original photos I photographed and art I made. I have been putting art I made on the web since about 2006 but I began creating art when I was in high school and took year long course in mechanical drawing.

I do not want my telephone numbers published on the web because I have been harassed and persecuted by malicious callers [prodeathers, murderers who want to harm me] . I was a victim of violence when I in Colorado during that 4 yr marriage second marriage. I am divorced from that man since Oct 2007. You can read more about those years on my blog in my former name at: https://gloriapoolepappas.blogspot.com.
