Tennis sketch by Gloria Poole of Missouri and Georgia

Tennis sketch by Gloria Poole of Missouri and Georgia; acrylics on 9 x 12 paper
Tennis is one of life's entertainments whether playing it or watching it. I technically learned to play tennis when I was student at University of Georgia, though not as a student activity but as a result of a friend I had in Athens.  I never excelled at it however. But I know from that experience that tennis, both watching it and playing it, is the be all and end all for some people.  This sketch is acrylic on 8 x 11 watercolor paper in sketch book. This is not a real person but the tennis wear is as women tennis players usually wear.  It was good practice for me because I am trying to learn to paint in a sense of movement in the human-like figures and that is a skill unto itself.

This blog has a theme of events in life or situations that make people happy--no ulterior motive or complicated theme.  

I have another simple site with a similar name at
and I realized today that might confuse people. I also have other blogs that i categorize as : prolife; teaching gospel; teaching public health; displaying art so you might enjoy some of those also. I am not trying to deceive anyone. There seems to be much confusion on web about who I am, [Google search my name and you will see some of the problems] but I am U S citizen and law abiding and trying  to be productive and helpful to others by sharing art, knowledge as RN, and gospel.

I am also a mother of 2 grown daughters who are Jennifer and Leigh, [but no sons] and an artist in all mediums, a writer, blogger, citizen journo, photographer, prolife activist, personhood amendment promoter, republican.
