Lighthouses created by Gloria Poole of Missouri

This first sketch is a do-over because I was not happy with it before. It is a lighthouse with a cross as a wind vane. It is acrylic on 14 x 17 paper. I, Gloria Poole, drew, painted, signed, photographed and uploaded all art on this blog and on all blogs of mine. I lived on St Simons Island Georgia for a year and it is lovely way of life. And it has a lighthouse. I have always been fascinated with lighthouses since a child--ever since my then-living-grandmother on the coast of Georgia told me that the ships used the light from the lighthouse to guide them into shore.

This second one is an oil painting I painted, signed, in year 2006 and photographed more than once ; and uploaded again today .It is on canvas board 16 x 20. I am adding some of the lighthouse series of art I have created intermittently for years to this blog for a reason.

This is also an oil painting I painted in year 2006 in a series of three that same year, but one of the three was stolen when I was in Aurora, COlorado [where I painted them]. I also painted two large oil paintings that year: one to pay the surgeon who repaired my fractures caused by my then-husband; and one to give to the Southern Baptist Church in Aurora, CO who helped me to move when my then-husband who had filed for divorce because I would not lift restraining order, abandoned me, taking the car, phone, cash, and food with him. So, I settled a ten thousand dollar debt with an oil painting I painted. And gave to the church who helped me another large oil painting named "At the foot of the cross" which I painted.

This sketch is a lighthouse on a cliff and it is watercolors on paper.
This sketch is a lighthouse on an island and it is acrylic.
I named this sketch boating by the lighthouse" for obvious reasons. That is the purpose of lighthouses--to help boats at night. I am sure I will continue to sketch and paint lighthouses. They are endlessly fascinating because each one is different. Some are dramatic such as on the outer banks of North Carolina, and some are remote and some are in the middle of the village that grew up around them. I am putting new sketches with old sketches and or paintings intermittently to "connect the dots" in people's mind with art I have created before and that is posted in my dwelling as physical, tangible art.
This sketch is my signature and sketch to include my state of residence, though I do own some land in the state of Georgia. I am adding it to my blogs to clarify where I live.

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 https://mini-exhibition.blogspot.com, and also on my Picasa albums at https://picasaweb.google.com/gloriapoole.

I, Gloria Poole, am a white, Southern Baptist Christian, brown-haired 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 https://gloriapoole.blogspot.com 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. .
