Solidarity with Christians everywhere with abstract sketch made by me Gloria Poole Registered Nurse artist of Missouri

This is an abstract sketch I made yesterday while thinking what I could do to help Christians in other countries where they are persecuted more than in the U S. So, I decided an abstract sketch is best way to do that because it is "modern" and I enclosed the Christian cross in the Jewish star of David, precisely because JESUS was a Jew, born into the lineage of King David. I put it on a background that is sort of ragged edges because christians everywhere are fleeing countries by walking across borders. And I put the constellation in bottom right to indicate that sometimes, just as in the Holy Bible, they flee at night under cover of darkness lit by the stars and moon. I am Christian, raised in the Southern Baptist Church and taught the scriptures from the age of seven, by a church program. The Holy Bible is the MOST defining part of my life. I cannot do much to help Christians in other countries but I can do THIS. If you are curious as to what Christians believe, you can read some of the holy scriptures on this blog of mine: I drew this in inktense which becomes permanent when brushed over with a wet brush. And on 9 x 12 paper in my sketchbook of the moment. I was trying to draw the star of David from memory but obviously I didn't get it precisely right. I signed this, photographed it, uploaded it, and posted it to this blog of mine which is true of all art on this blog. copyrighted.

This is another attempt of mine to draw /sketch hydrangea flowers using chalk, and then I brushed over it with a brush wet with alum water to set it. I read about the alum method of fixing watercolors in a Chinese art technique book that I bought some time ago. I have given it some thought and think that the reason drawing with chalk perfects skills, is that because it doesn't completely erase, it causes the artist to have to THINK about where to place each stroke of chalk. Because once it is there, it is more or less there! So all errors show. I also signed this with drawing chalk and brushed over my signature with alum water also. This is also 9 x 12 inches on paper in my sketchbook. I draw and make sketches in sketchbooks, most of the time, but about 5- 6 times each year I paint in oils on canvas. Painting in oils on canvas is fun to me and I like too, but it is also more concentration and time [weeks or months instead of hour for sketch] for me and more expense so I generally only paint in oils when I have an inspiration-- an aha moment when I realize precisely what I want to make permanent into oils on canvas.I made this, signed it, photographed it, uploaded it and posted it today 18th Sept 2015. I created and signed and photographed and posted ALL art on this blog and it is all copyrighted.

You can follow me and tweet me on these twitter accounts of mine: @gloriapoole; @gloria_poole; @Tartan_Bliss, @ProlifeNurse; @tweetie0817; and at @personhood1. Direct messaging me on twitter or calling me on my wired telephone in Missouri is best way to contact me, or by U S mail to my apt in Missouri. Or you can email me of course, if you know my email addresses. But I want to preface that with info that I am VERY cautious in replying to email or direct messages because it is hard to verify who sent them and threats were made to my life by my 2nd exhusband in Colorado.
