Brass Pot with Plumbs and Oriental Pot by O.Gail Poole
I am happy to announce that O. Gail Poole’s work is in exhibit at the MAINSITE in Norman September 10th – October 30th, 2010.
Connections by O.Gail Poole
O. Gail Poole is a resident of Norman, Oklahoma where he enjoys painting. For several decades, this Marlow, Oklahoma native has won numerous awards starting with his earlier work as an illustrator. This master’s range in subject matter and technique is grand, bringing to life landscape, still lifes, and portraits in oil and pastels along with fantastical artworks and sculptures.
Taos Ruin by O.Gail Poole
Poole says that it is the world around him that inspires his artwork. This is especially apparent in his landscapes, where he records his experiences of the places he has traveled, bringing to us lands on panels. In his still lifes, Poole infuses color and form to create vibrant paintings that glow with sumptuousness.

Selfportrait by O. Gail Poole
Poole is part of a circle of American contemporary master artists, that also includes Mark Daly, David Leffel and Sherrie McGraw, among others that continue to produce commendable art.

  1. my favorite is the brass pot picture. I really love it.:)

  2. Carolina, thanks so much for this article! Dad's show went beautifully and he sold quite a number of paintings. I have to re-work his website, but there are a great number of photos there if people want to take a gander.

    Also, kudos to you for your artistic pursuits. I'm a fledgling painter myself and it is really inspiring to me. Keep up the good work!

    All the best,
    Nicole Poole

I don't like to paint things that I don't find to be attractive to me for one reason or another. Sometimes it's sentimental reasons and other times it's as simple as beautiful colors or the texture. Either way, it's something that I want to capture and stare at for long periods of time. I want to study it and how it affects the environment around it, as in the case of Sunflowers in Cobalt Blue Vase does. In that respect, I feel ALL my paintings are a labor of love.  More often than not, I have to create a painting, wipe it all down, and start all over again if something is just not working. Some never get completed and I just end up painting something totally different on that panel. Then there are some, that I just have to paint, no matter how much trouble they are giving

Thank you for the happy e-mails, the wonderful advice and sharing of resources, and your kindness and support all around. I've found that simplifying my life can be complicated and messy at first, but I am getting into the swing of things and finding my way around raising chickens, keeping bees, organic gardening and teaching art. During winter break, I started my coop plans--all the things coops had to have and the best way to build it so that that it would not be something my neighbors would mind seeing as they step outside their houses. I must add that I have the BEST neighbors in the world. I bought chickens in March and by April, they were ready to be outside of the broode
