Happy Birthday John!

1/12/14 Sunday at Longwood, FL (Betty/Denny’s pad)

Annunciation Church here in Altomonte Springs is so beautiful and calming, the choir (16 members) sang in heavenly harmony. John figures 1500 people would fit. It seemed pretty full to me today. These photos were taken after Mass.

We spent our afternoon arranging camping places so we could park near St. Augustine to have a few days to explore there. It would take us 1.5 hours each way to get there from here and it just seemed to add more driving to our life than we wanted.

Betty and Denny joined us at Tijuana Flats to celebrate John’s birthday. Would you believe it – Denny’s birthday is tomorrow!


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.
