Happy Mother’s Day

5/12/13 Sunday at Clinton, IN (Horseshoe Lakes Campground-TT)

Off in time for church.  Sunny, blue sky day but so cold, 50 degrees at 9:30 am.  So we struck up the heat and hunkered down, I read, John rearranged his campground spreadsheets,   mostly, continuing after lunch.  Then I took a nap.  Delicious.  John called his mom this morning to give her Mother’s Day wishes and our sons both gave me Mother’s Day greetings. So nice.

Later in the afternoon, we paid a visit with our neighbors, Andy and Chris, having a great time sharing RV travel tips.  Back home for supper.

It feels like we’ve had these 10 days to re-energize  after all the efforts prior to this, all of April until now.  Things will get pretty busy starting tomorrow, so we should be ready.



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.
