Windmill series by Gloria Poole of Missouri ;Update

I, Gloria Poole, drew this sketch yesterday in pencil [see second photo] and I painted it this morning, 31 Oct 2014, in acrylics. It is 14 x 17 on paper in sketch book. I erased the words & my name I had written in pencil yesterday before photographing it so it would not show up in the completed sketch and then re-signed it in paint when it was done. I signed this and named it "windmill on Mediterranean after I had completed it but when I did the drawing I named it "windmill on Aegean" then realized the Aegean Sea is different from the Mediterranean so I renamed it. I have been to Italy but not to the Aegean. I photographed it several times with several cameras and with flash on in some of them, then I uploaded it. I have sketched windmills before and painted a huge painting of a windmill in year 2000 that was stolen from me by then-husband to take to his male friend's house where he lived most of the time. Thankfully I am divorced from that evil man [DBP] since Oct 2007. [For more on that read copyright and disclosure info .] I usually do draw as a preliminary before I paint but that is not a hard and fast rule. Sometimes I just paint without drawing it first especially if I have a huge canvas and a very firm idea of how I want it to look.

This is the graphite drawing that is the preliminary drawing I drew with a number 555 pencil to test the pencil to see if it photographs better on drawings [and it does]. I did not photograph the progression of this sketch but sometimes I do. For an example of that, see another blog of mine at

I drew with polychrome this sketch and named it 'windmill in polychrome" in Sept this year. And of course, signed it, photographed it and uploaded it. It is also on another blog of mine.
I drew this and painted it in watercolors, signed it photographed it with different cameras, uploaded it.

I drew and painted this to resemble a windmill in the village of a European town. I did visit Europe two different times in the 1990's, and I saw windmills and I saw villages and quaint towns and I loved it so much I considered giving up my U S citizenship to stay there.

I drew this hoping it sort of resembled those new type of windmills being placed off shore in many parts of the world. But I thought the actual windmills of those are boring , not an interesting subject, so I made these asymmetrical and added in fans to it. I named it asymmetric wind farm and it is also on another blog of mine at as featured image.

Also, I have painted another whole batch of windmills that are not displayed on this blog and I posted them to one of these blogs of mine: {Random cartoons I created]

Also, I post art I create [as a single photo instead of a series of same theme] on these blogs of mine:

Also, remember that I have a blog I began when I was married the second time [but divorced from since Oct 2007] at, and it contains my words, photos, art and thankfully it still belongs to me though there is no Pappas in my name since Oct 2007 at time of final divorce decree from male DBP. Read copyright info and disclsoure info for more on that.

This is my signature that I signed onto a painted palette for an logo of sorts to add to my blogs where I post my original art I create, photos I photograph and words I write.

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 and on; and on Live albums and on Flickr albums. .

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/blogger/photographer/illustrator for words that WORK, and also for Tapestry of LIFE and previously also for Life Media & Publishing when that was my entity and I was actively building up a publishing company; and just for fun 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. .
