Happy Thanksgiving!

11/28/13 Thursday at Yemassee, SC (The Oaks at Point South-TT/MA)

This is the best of holidays, for to give thanks is to have a grateful heart. Life is rich when lived with gratitude. The RV life has helped us experience the riches of friendship and experiences; you can’t get more blessed than that.

We hope everyone experiences this day with family/friends and gets to relax, enjoying all the good times this country makes possible.

Special thanks to our sons and grandchildren, who we got to talk with today, as well as all those we’ve met along our journey.

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.
