Views From Horseshoe Lakes

5/6/13 Monday at Clinton, IN (Horseshoe Lakes Campground-TT)

We’re getting a bit more ambitious with food recently. I think it’s due to a more relaxed time, with knowing we’re here for over a week and with all the rain. So John made omelets this morning!

I’d anticipated a dry day today, but it’s not to be, so I’m going to clean house any way. It’s been 2 weeks and looks it. Not to mention tracking the mud in the last several days. Unfortunately, with the slides still in, I can’t clean those floors, but I’ll get them later.

I finally got recent days posted to the blog, then we had lunch. Next, John worked cleaning off bugs from our windshield. He’s got a good system worked out now. I cleaned house while he went to town for tortillas. When he returned we got some sunshine, so we took a lovely walk around the campground.


Just outside our windshield.

Around the park, including our site.

For supper, leftover “Cinco de Mayo” tacos, then TV.

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.
