Project Day

10/23/13 Wednesday at Lenoir, NC (Green Mountain Park Resort-TT/MA)

We decided to spend today at home, so we tackled some simple projects. John changed our sediment water filter and filled the fresh water tank (it takes half an hour), so we can be independent of the city water. When our hose is connected the water in it can freeze when it gets cold enough. Not fun if you are expecting water first thing on a cold morning. I cleaned our big vinyl chairs and the rug where our leak was a problem. We still seem to be getting some small bit of leaking there when it rains. I also wrote yesterday’s blog.

In the afternoon I uploaded the photos and posted the blog. We got groceries, then spent the rest of the day planning where we’ll go in 2014.

John had hoped to play golf today, but the cool weather and wind persuaded him against it.

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.
