Time At Home and Dryer Sheets Cleaning Bugs Off Windshield

12/9/13 Monday at Woodbine, GA (Walkabout Camp and RV Park-RPI)

The day started with dense fog but grew into one of lots of sunshine, heat 80 degrees) and humidity. We pretty much escaped by holding up in Miss Zanzibar with her air conditioning. Had to keep up our energy, so we had those marvelous omelets, filled with our Wisconsin bacon, cheddar cheese, grilled onions and tomato/potato. SO good. John was the chef. Since it was cooler this morning, I cleaned house while John did pre traveling jobs and cleaned the bugs off the front windshield. He gave dryer sheets a try and found that when wet they work very well on glass. We don’t think they’d be gentle enough for the painted areas.

In the afternoon I worked on computer projects and tackled Christmas gifts. It’s coming up much too fast. John did his normal computer/TV thing. A comfortable day all around.

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.
