The Next NATO Sec-Gen's sketch by Gloria Poole of Missouri

I, Gloria Poole, am putting here on this blog of mine another sketch of a Prime Minister, or in this case a former Prime Minister of Norway, who is Jens Stoltenberg of Norway who is to be the next NATO Secretary-General. I drew, painted, signed, photographed and uploaded this sketch of Mr Stoltenberg to this blog to go along with the seven sketches of Prime Ministers that I drew, painted, signed, photographed, uploaded to my blog yesterday. I could not add another sketch to that post without having to adjust it a good bit so I am putting this sketch here. I drew this from the photo of Mr Stoltenberg that was in the NY times yesterday that I saw on web. But I changed it so his eyes in sketch were looking straight ahead instead of to side. I tried to replicate his clothing as I saw it in the news. You can also read most of my hand-written notes to myself in pencil to the side of the drawing. I drew it first, then painted it in acrylics on paper. The notes are generally for my purpose so It prompts me to paint it as authentically as possible when painting real people. Mr Stoltenberg is a LIVING real person who is to be the next NATO Secretary General and he was a former Prime Minister of Norway also. I reasoned if he was on front page NY Times as the next NATO Secretary-General he is not a "private" person which is a standard in the law. Also, note that the dark smudge on right side of his "face" was not intentional and was not on his face in NY Times' photo.. I did that unintentionally with brush with brown paint on it and didn't notice it before I photographed it. Also see other Prime Ministers on; and see Crowns and turbans sketches I put on another blog of mine at: also.

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: I have other blogs that I add art I create too besides this one and other blogs primarily for the prolife cause that I occasionally add art I create too. You can see the almost complete list of blogs owned by me that contain art I created on post from yesterday on
