Utopia Station Train sketch by Gloria Poole of Missouri and Georgia

I, Gloria Poole, drew this sketch and first painted it with watercolors. Then when I photographed it, I realized the perspective was wrong by much. So re-drew parts of it, and repainted it in acrylics and signed it, yesterday. Also, the background trees are watercolor so this is a mixed media sketch on paper in my sketch book, size 9x12 inches. And I had much trouble with that wrought iron cow-catcher on the front of train. I re-drew that so many times, finally just thought "it's finished for now" and probably a re-do later. Today, I also put sketches I created yesterday on my blogs: [Sioux Falls Trolley] and on [Prima Ballerina sketch 2]. This is on paper and is on my portable drawing board. I intended the landscape to be sort of red clay, sparse and selected the name "Utopia Station" precisely because much of the world lives in rural, [agrarian] land that might have sparse train stations. There is no such place as "Utopia Station" as far as I know. I made up that name and place. And of course, a real train would be either with a smokestack if a vintage train, or a lot of bells and whistles and ads on the sides of cars, etc. I simplified this "train" to focus on the engine of it, and the station. Hope you viewers like it. It is on my portable drawing board but I also draw at my drawing tabel, and on easels with canvases on them etc. I photograph sketches with that drawing board often because it has metal clamps that hold it in place. I also photograph art I create on my easels. Also, if you scroll all to the right edge you will see the metal clamps. The reflection is from the camera flash as it bounced light off a oil painting on my wall to the right. That painting reflected in the metal clamps is one I painted in 2011 and named "The Lawn." It is on other blogs of mine and I think also in my Picasa albums of art I created. Just so you know.

Also, I created a new blog named Mini Exhibition with title "Gloria's blog" at, and the first post I put on it, is the most recent ethnic oil paintings I painted in the ethnic series I have been painting since 2006. I intend to put art that I created as a series or set on that particular blog.

Also, I have put art I created on my blogs for YEARS [since about 2006] and I own the copyright to all of it, regardless of where I was at the time I drew/ sketched/ painted it; and regardless of for what purpose, or the year created, or the title [some people who ripped art I created off my websites in 2008, renamed them;] but art I create has my signature on it in paint usually and in my hand-writing.

Copyright Notice: I, Gloria Poole, of Missouri and Georgia, own this blog and all rights to it. I created it to begin with, years ago, 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 I have the original paintings and sketches. I sign my name on art as Gloria, and on some sketches as Gloria Poole. Gloria Poole is my real, born with, legal names 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 in Oct 2007 from [male] DBP of Colorado. 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; 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; and as other variations of my real, born with, legal name of Gloria Poole. I am white, single, woman, 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 perverted [against nature] people. I am Southern Baptist Christian. And 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 had many domains and several with my name in them but a hosting company stole them when they were paid up in yr 2008 and sold them to highest bidder to try to ruin me for opposing sodomy [because GOD also opposes it in Leviticus 18:22, KJV and Romans chapter one]. Their staffer told me he intended to take my domains [and keep my sites off web to censor me] until I apologized for publishing the scriptures opposing sin. I said I would NEVER apologize for publishing the scriptures or for believing GOD's word to be true. So, there is a Judgement Day from THE LIVING LORD coming for those atheist perverts. The Bible says so in many scriptures.
