Cavernous room sketches by Gloria Poole of Missouri and Georgia

. Today, I drew and painted this, then repainted it several times. If you scroll to the bottom of this post you will see the basic preliminary drawing in pencil that I drew, trying to paint one of those cavernous rooms like in a castle that seem to stretch for miles and that are elegantly appointed. You will see if you study these photos I photographed at different stages of this first attempt of mine to draw and paint an elaborate room, that I had the perspective of the room wrong in the drawing. I didn't realize it at first. When I started painting it in inks with a brush, I knew immediately that the angle of the floor was wrong. So I did it over, "erased" the mistake as much as possible first with silver ink, then when that didn't cover the mistake, I painted over it with white paint. So then I rephotographed it to see if it looked like a 3 dimensional room from a distance. Then I painted it again. Then when the gold ink didn't cover the mistake I repainted the "walls" with golden yellow acrylic paint. In the process, I smeared ink more than once! And if you look at my signature in ink w/ calligraphy pen, you see that the ink bled onto the paper because the paper was already wet with ink! I painted with iks quite abit in year 2008 and 2009 but haven't much since I moved to Missouri in Oct 2009. Someone broke into my apartment and stole the silver nib-holder I had and though I have other dip pens they were not designed specifically for the set of colored inks that I have. So, I have to relearn the technique. I realized form this effort over about 3 hours this am that I had gotten very rusty with this technique. This is obviously a do-over again. I totally messed up the pattern in the floor by re-painting the juncture of the wall and floor several times. But I learn from drawing and painting sketches and that is why I do that. Well. One of the reasons I do that. I love to draw and usually it is very relaxing to me. I studied drawing for an entire year at age 17 [man years ago] and it is my way of de-stressing usually. I also studied oil painting after I had already become a Registered Nurse and worked at hospitals as a creative hobby that was relaxing in my off-duty time. Just study the sketches and you will understand the changes . This is my first attempt to draw a sketch of a huge, long room with a patterned carpet and overhead beams, and a cathedral ceiling. I have to try again and next time it will look better. Michelango, the famous artist, said if you draw something one hundred times, you master it. So this is drawing number one in a series of cavernous rooms. But I draw often and have posted pencil drawings I drew in graphite, charocals, watercolor pencils many times to other blogs and probably also to this one.

This is my signature that I painted onto a sketch of a paleete. I am putting it on most blogs of mine as my logo, except that I cannot put it on my two wordpress blogs because they only allow one photo at a time [unless I'm doing it wrong with their platform] but I have copyright notices on those also. I added another sketch I created today to my blog today and put new sketches I created yesterday on these blogs of mine:

I lso posted news that affects all voters [#voteprolife] to some of my prolife blogs

. I had to correct typos several times. A man that I don't know called me as I logged in and in the past when that happened it was an effort to break into my blog. So it made me nervous and I made a lot of typos that I had to correct several times. I don't know how they know when I login but somehow unknown persons at remote KNOW every time I log into this blog and they try to disrupt it or mess it up.

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

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 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. .
