Another Simple, Beautiful Day

5/1/13 Wednesday at Cheap Hill, TN ( Lock A-COE)

The sun came out from behind clouds before noon today. John & I spent the morning with more computer business (first of the month). Then after lunch we drove over 3 miles to the Post Office to mail a birthday card, then when we returned to the campground, we drove to the Cheatham Dam (Lock A). Pretty small and low, so not worth taking a photo. Upon our return to home, we took a little walk, then sat on a bench watching the river flow by. The rest of the day we spent relaxing on our recliners (as John noted, they’re so much more comfortable then that bench).

Hope I can sleep all night. Glad I’ve never taken Ambien.  John says “good night” too.


About Patricia Elser

I've always loved the loose, flowing, transparent look of watercolors, of Chinese paintings and their calligraphy, but alas, no watercolor classes were available when I was in school, so that interest remained buried until my children were grown. Even then, I was afraid that I couldn't really paint, so upon my sister's advice, I actually started to take classes. I signed up for every class available, determined to learn no matter how afraid I was. I came upon a teacher, Stan Miller, who inspired me, who opened the door to success in watercolor. I love to look at beautiful images. I want to capture them forever. All my life, photography was how I gathered images of the beauty I saw. Thanks to all that photography, I enjoy composing pictures, especially up close. Watercolors allow me to add more of me in their translation of that beauty. My paintings reflect my love for music and dance, with their rhythm and flow. I am fascinated by the play of light, so it appears in my pictures as drama for they are filled with darks and lights. Maybe it's the challenge, maybe it's the beauty, but now, when a work comes together, it fills my soul.
