Beautiful, Dryer, Sunny Day

7/11/13 Thursday at St Clair, MI (St Clair-TT)

Finally, the humid weather has moved on, the cold front moved in, giving us drying air that’s still sunny. We also managed to avoid all the predicted storms that happen when a cold front meets a warm front – they were north and south of us, but not over us. Spent the morning getting that blog and photos uploaded. After 1 ½ hours, my computer battery was almost gone, John’s phone (hot spot) battery was almost gone and, because we had our car radio on, the Honda battery died. Oops. John walked to the campground (about a mile), asking Bill for a jump. Bill drove John up to the car, where I was waiting, and performed battery revival. Yay! Of course, we drove back to Miss Zanzibar and hooked up the charger to our car.

Auction guy’s check finally arrived at our bank, so now can disburse mom’s money. Thus that’s what I did in the afternoon. Really good to have that process completed now. Yay!

We settled down in our chairs outside to read and enjoy the good weather. Our neighbor, Harry, came back from a short trip and we shared RV info. We love the screen material he has for his tires and an outdoor mat.

Our supper was popcorn and chili, then some TV and bed. Good, gentle day.

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.
