Day Apart

6/17/13 Monday at Buchanan, MI (Bear Cave Resort-TT/Mid Atlantic)

John went golfing after 8 am, while I got into cleaning house, including a couple special projects: convection oven and cleaning the big chairs up front. Once I’d finished these chores I watched taped TV shows, still catching up. It got really hot. I was afraid our air conditioners couldn’t keep up because it kept getting warmer inside – to 80.6 and the air coming from our A/C in the front was warm. I’d thought about stopping it, because I thought I might have smelled something burning, but I let it continue. Amazingly, I noticed the temperature starting going down, to 79 and sure enough, the air coming out was the coldest I’d felt all morning. I’ll keep my fingers crossed that all is well.

John arrived not so long after I’d finished my lunch. He felt good about his game. It was under 100 if you don’t count the cheating he did in the second half. I’m glad he was happy, even though it was so hot.

Our afternoon included more TV, cutting John’s hair and eyebrows, then grocery shopping. Tomorrow we drive to Stockbridge, MI so we can visit with my cousin Judy.

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.
