One thing that is clear for Gail is that success is more about the quest and not about the outcome, the search to find the way to express himself and express the visions in his head. He is a patient artist who isn’t giving up on the ideal. I quote Sherrie McGraw who says, “O. Gail Poole is a maverick and is, as yet, untamed. Perhaps, he is like a volcano at rest, occasionally letting off a puff of smoke or steam, a glimmering of molten lava, waiting for the moment to fully express his passion within. I caught him in between puffs of steam.”
