|Oil painting painted by Gloria Poole & named "Irish student" in ethnic series.|
Yea, yea, yea, I know that I should put my best image of it forward. That is increasingly hard to do, because cyber-hackers lurk to try to grab the first image of any art I create and that's is very frustrating to me. So much so, that I am thinking of not putting any more of the art I create on the web.
I began the ethnic series of paintings in yr 2007 in another state. I moved to Missouri in Oct 2009 after 2nd divorce in Oct 2007 in Colorado. My mission with the series I named ethnic paintings was to show each ethnic group with some of their characteristics and in native costume [if they have one] and to show that regardless of skin color, or eyes, or hair, or features, language, age, status, GOD loves all people, and I know that from Bible verse John 3:16, KJV.
This is a photo of an actual painting I painted with oil paints and brushes on canvas. It is NOT a real person. In fact, none of the paintings in my ethnic series are real people. They are all painted by me, made up as I go along with the brush in my hand. And photographed by me but with a wide assortment of cameras, cell phones, devices, gadgets. It has to do with many factors which one I photograph with at any time. IF I was trying to send something, and it was intercepted by crooks, I immediately switch cameras. For my own physical safety because I was a victim of violence, and trauma.
I also added paintings that I painted in August to my blogs at:
And added more cartoons to 1 of my cartooning blogs at:
I have other blogs that I add art too, including :
and others also. Each blog is unique, and I add art to them with goals in mind usually. I often create art to make a visual display of something to make a point.
I love to paint. It relaxes me, and it helps me think. Because I don't have to concentrate so furiously on it, ideas flow easily to my mind. I have painted as artist since 1991, but I had professional training in drawing before that.
