Bird watching is one of life's pleasures

Copyrighted original art by Gloria Poole of Missouri of Lake of Ozarks blue herons [birds].

I, Gloria Poole, residing in Missouri, but born in state of Georgia, added the two sketches in watercolor that I drew, painted, signed, photographed and uploaded to this blog of mine. These are Lake of the Ozarks' blue herons and they are fascinating because , well, look how they look in flight--like some gangly teenager with  big Adam's apple and big feet flying through the air. They look like they couldn't fly in other words.  Look at the sketch of heron standing in edge of water and see how big the body looks and how long the legs are. It looks all out of proportion ! Like legs too skinny neck too long body to big but it flies! It is fascinating to me. 

Bird watching is an entertainment and it's a favorite pastime of many people. Some people, particularly in Asian countries will spend lots of money and travel long distances to watch whooping cranes, and other rare birds. 

I have sketched and painted birds of several variities and even created one from my imagination. I posted a set of those photos of my art drawing and painting birds, and I think I put it on : ; my mini exhibit of art I create/ created.  Also, I think I put the bird that doesn't exist except on sketch paper on my blog: ; or on

Festival music is one of life's entertainments; sketch by Gloria Poole of Missouri

Festival Music sketch by Gloria Poole of Missouri and Georgia; 12 June 2014; acrylics 

In keeping with the theme of this blog, of showing in some way good events or places or things that are entertainment for most people, I drew and painted a sketch today and named it "Festival music".  Festivals or any sort almost always have musicians there [lucky for all]. And I have been to festivals all over state of Georgia [Oktoberfest, coastal, near Callaway Gardens] , and  in Scotland [Hogmanay] , and in Missouri [pumpkin patch], and hope to go to many more. They are usually 2-3 days , over a week-end, and a day long event of many scheduled bands, singers, dancers,  and crafts and arts for sale, and usually food is served of a variety of ethnic groups. Festivals are GREAT fun. Any time you see one advertised, plan to go even if only for a short while. They are down to earth FUN. 

This sketch is 9 x 12 inches on paper, and is in acrylics but has a underpainting of watercolors and graphite.  Copyright Notice: this blog and all content on it belongs to me Gloria Poole, currently residing in Missouri but born in the state of Georgia; and neither it nor its individual posts may be transferred to anyone anywhere; nor have domains forwarded to it that do not belong to me; nor be copied, nor photo-copied, nor printed at remote, nor saved to disk by anyone.

Also, I have other blogs that I post art too. Two of those also have sketches of bands that I created before. If you are interested you can see the other sketches on these blogs:<P> and scroll to the April 11th named "Southern Baptist Church band"<P> and scroll to the March 2nd post named " Mack n Sax."

Life's entertainment sometimes is just chilling at waterfront.

"Point of the peninsula"  sketch by Gloria Poole of Missouri, 8 June 2014 ; acrylics on paper 9 x12

I, Gloria Poole, of Missouri am creating this blog because I have had this account since about 2006 and let it sit idle most of the time. Now, I have to do something with it. When I began this account, I was morphing the public access TV show I had when I lived in Denver, CO to the internet to try to make peace with my then-husband. Things only got worse and I suffered a lot of violence against me, injury and pain since. Sometimes it does not help to try to appease a man whose entire life's principles are diametrically opposite of your own. That second marriage ended in divorce  in Oct 2007 when the Baptist Church there began to pray for GOD to do something to save my life from destruction, and after much injury to me  [fractures, concussion, lost years, lost content I created [well. not lost; content I created was stolen there from me].   After that second divorce,  I resumed my maiden name  of Gloria Poole; and I moved from Colorado to Missouri in Oct 2009 after I had attended various hearings in various courtrooms [as  a witness or creditor]. 

Then I sort of forgot all about this account until recently when I was looking through my paper notebooks for something else.  And found the information I had written about this account. I began a simple site for this and it is on web at:<P>
Then I couldn't quite decide what to do with this account. I didn't want to let it go, because it has a history sort of. I do not have a TV show now. I don't know if I ever will again. But who knows? I have many reasons for wanting to get the attention of the public: the prolife cause of saving baby humans from destruction, painting as artist and needing to find museums and collectors to buy art I create, reciting poems I write. Any of those could bring about interviews and or a TV show on public access channel again someday. So, I decided to keep this account and just start again with it.  I think I will make the theme of this ways of making people think about how they could enjoy life and where, by maybe creating art to make them see life differently. It's a work in progress so I will create it as I go, and it may morph in time.

Now as to the meaning of this sketch. A peninsula is a portion of land that juts out into the water whether on  a bay on the ocean, or a lake. It is connected to the land at the end of it sort of like a tail on a kite.  So, most of the peninsula is surrounded by water and as it makes the turn water is on the other side of it also. I thought a house on a peninsula would be the best of both worlds. The owners and or residents of it could swim, sit on beach and watch the boats, fish from dock, picnic on dock,  boat from their own landing, have fish fries in the sand, sit and watch the stars. etc, etc, etc. So, it could be would be great entertainment. So much better than an urban setting 24/ 7/ 365  , surrounded by pavement and concrete, and cars whizzing by too fast for pedestrians, and the heat that pavement and concrete emits in the hot summer months.  This is simply a sketch in acrylics on 9 x 12 paper that I drew, painted, signed , photographed and uploaded today.  I also have other blogs and I categorize them by function: some are prolfe; some are mostly for art I create, some are for teaching the gospel, and some are just for whatever I want to post to them such as words I write, poems and art I create also.
