This post is about defining an accomplished life that defies the "normal" idea of "handicapped persons" and this is specifically about me Gloria Poole because this blog belongs ONLY to me. I own the name Tapestry of LIFE and this official blog for it and all content on it. I do not have a "boss" nor a business partner nor a husband. I am my own boss. I am categorizing this on purpose.
I. I make art with almost all mediums of oils, acrylics, watercolors, powdered pastels, gouche, tempera, pastels, encaustics, pen and ink; pencils, watercolor pencils, and I often post that "art" to blogs of mine on a rotating basis. I have generally reserved this blog for serious topics about citizenship, being a good citizen, the U S Constitution, and the public policies that concern human life. However, since the name Tapestry of LIFE is appearing on many other people's blogs and writings, I am trying to re-claim it since I coined the phrase in about Jan 2003, and it belongs to me and I used that as the name of the simple TV show I had in Colorado. I moved from Colorado on Oct 31, 2009 after a second divorce. I never really had the luxury of time to develop that TV show because my then-husband dragged me physically out-of-the-TV-station and sabotaged me in every possible way. That horrible four yr marriage to male with initials DBP ended in Oct 2007 and is public record in Colorado; and I removed the Pappas name from my name forevermore at time of final divorce decree. That is also a part of the tapestry of my life. A tapestry tells a story in thread and Europe has some of the most spectacular and beautiful tapestries in the world. I saw some of them when I visited Germany, England, Italy, Scotland and Netherlands. This tapestry of life--the OFFICIAL one-- is about weaving together the many facets of my life into something that endures and stands the test of time. I have been a Registered Nurse since age 21 and had a long career before my then-husband DBP tried to kill me in Colorado to steal my life, and ended my actual career as a working nurse.
This is the sketch I made last evening. I drew it and re-drew it several times with graphite pencil, than painted it with watercolor. It is 9 x 12 on paper in my sketchbook of the moment. I love those deep greens and blue-greens in combination. I drew this, painted it with brush, signed it, photographed it , uploaded it and posted it to this blog of mine , which is true of all art on this blog and any blog of mine. Copyrighted.
This is my sketch I made trying to draw with chalk the tapestry design of my own tapestry which is a table runner for thanksgiving that I own, and which is partially displayed on this blog of mine. It is chalk on 9 x 12 paper in my sketchbook. I drew this with chalk, signed it with chalk, photographed it , uploaded it and posted it to this blog of mine , which is true of all art on this blog and any blog of mine. Copyrighted.
This is my copyright notice for this blog and all content on it. I, Gloria Poole, RN, artist , OWN all rights to all content on this blog and to the name Tapestry of LIFE.
