Father’s Day Fun

6/15/13 Saturday at Buchanan, MI (Bear Cave Resort-TT/Mid Atlantic)

Up just barely in time to get dressed and drive to the Farmer’s Market at 8 am. I got spinach, zucchini and radishes while John got cookies. I spent the morning writing for the blog and running laundry loads. John played on his computer and read. Bob (from next door) came over and visited some, then Kathie came over, then we all split for lunch. At this point it started raining. Hmm wonder when I’ll get John’s hair cut. I continued work on the blog. It happened to be a good day for it, raining most of the afternoon. Bob and Karen came over for help finding a campground near Charleston, WV. Plotting where you can stay is no easy task. We all split and relaxed a bit, then, to celebrate Father’s Day early, we set off to eat out at Silver Beach Pizza, with a little walk to the beach and Cabana’s for ice cream. Wonderful topping to a lovely relaxing day. Bob and Kathie are leaving tomorrow, so this way we could all enjoy the celebration together. Never did get John’s hair cut. Supposed to rain tonight.


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.
