I drew this with watercolor pencils and then painted it with a wet brush. Some of the festivals are taking place in exotic places with beaches so I thought these fish might stoke an interest in those places. I signed this, photographed it, uploaded it and posted it to this blog of mine today 14th June 2016 at 4:58pm. I missed some of the festivals [that happened this past weekend] so this is not a complete list of all festivals around the world by any means. But viewers may be able to find a festival near you and this will give you the basic info. Copyrighted art I made and photographed, and I, Gloria Poole, [RN,artist, photographer, etc,etc,etc] own all rights to this blog as a whole unit and as individual posts and art.
Also, thanks to my readers/ viewers in 52 countries of world for all blogs I create. For this particular blog, the viewers of previous post were in US, France, Russia and Vietnam. If you want to see the complete list of countries that view one blog or another of mine, it is updated on my https://gloriapoole.blogspot.com. Link included towards end of post.

This is my selfie [Gloria Poole,RN, artist] in spring 2014 but I look the same except that I am thinner and my hair is longer but I still put it in lop-sided pony tail when I walk about or create art to prevent hair from blowing into my eyes or into paint.That is also me that you see in the "about me" box on right side of this blog and I am wearing a dark grey winter wool hat because that photo was taken of me in state of Georgia in Jan 2010 and my family in Georgia saw me wearing that hat and so did other people. So I am leaving that photo also on this blog for that reason.
This is one of my photos of the U S flag I photographed on walkabout to remind all I am a U S citizen with all civil liberties including freedom of Press, freedom to worship THE LORD GOD, and freedom to associate with whomever I want or not to associate with those GOD labels "abomination" and freedom to protest governments.
