Beach Time

12/5/13 Thursday at Yemassee, SC (The Oaks at Point South-TT/MA-John and Trish at Hilton Head Island) 

Yesterday wore me out. We enjoyed a leisurely morning, spending time at computer jobs. Greg and Marcia had business in Beaufort, so they left John and I to our own devices. Time slipped away and soon it was 1 pm so we ate lunch. Things had really warmed up, so we headed out to the beach. On the way we saw this beautiful heron right in the condo yards, posing you could say. Thank heavens for smart phone cameras. Some images of what we found on our beach walk.

When we came back that same heron was still “working”. Someone asked to take our photo with the heron, so we obliged.  You’ll find the heron to the right of our heads.

Then we settled into our seats on our balcony in the warm delicious sunshine. Our friends soon arrived, breaking the quiet. They had good news from their efforts in Beaufort, so we were all glad. Computer time, then a ham supper. This time everyone was in the kitchen except me. Hmm that was nice of them.

We ended the evening with “The Sound of Music” live stage presentation on TV.

Lovely day of rest.

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.

    I love the beach. Was that a great blue heron? We had them in Norfolk often.
