I, Gloria Poole, Registered Nurse, and artist in all mediums, photographer at times, cartoonist at times, author, mother, white, Southern Baptist Christian divorced woman, painted this today 2nd July 2016 using a photograph in a travel magazine as my reference. It is not an exact image of that real person however. I do not know the person but I know the place is Zimbabwe, on the continent of Africa. This is a sketch only on 11 x 15 watercolor-specific paper that I painted with acrylic paint thinned with water and brushes. I signed it, photographed it, uploaded it, and posted it to this blog of mine today 2 July 2016 at 9:52am, but this is not the only blog I have that I post art I make too. this is one of a long series of ethnic series art I began creating in year 2006 when I lived in Colorado for a few awful years. I have painted hundreds of ethnic series sketches and this in the most recent one. I continue to paint ethnic series sketches and occasionally oil paintings also.

This is my selfie in spring 2014 but I look the same except thinner and my hair is longer. I still put my hair in lop-sided pony-tail when I walkabout or paint to prevent hair from getting into my eyes, or into my paints or inks.
