Cold Golf Day

10/25/13 Friday at Lenoir, NC (Green Mountain Park Resort-TT/MA)

Despite the cool temperatures (32 degrees when we got up), John decided to brave the golf course anyway. He’d envisioned golfing in every state we visit, but it just hasn’t worked out that way, so he felt it’s time to give it a go. At home, I stayed cozy and warm, writing about our NPS Battleground visits yesterday. After lunch I uploaded photos and posted to the blog while visiting with a couple some sites down from us.

Since it was such a cold day I proceeded to make pumpkin muffins. John did not do so well golfing, so I never learned his score or any details. He’s sore from all the walking too. Fish for supper then we curled up with our books and some TV for the evening.

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.
