Walk Around the Neighborhood

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

Today we decided to take it easy. It was just what the doctor ordered. So this morning I worked on the blog while John worked on cleaning his golf grips. They’re still not tacky (they’re about 7 years old), so he’ll be having new ones put on while we’re on our cruise. Yes, you’d think we’ve had enough excitement lately, yet here we are with more to come. That’s why today was so fine – we need these times to lay low and recharge our batteries for all the preparations and fun of new experiences.

Thus we packed for our cruise in the afternoon…getting excited now. Since we’d been cooped up in the RV (no front room slides out) we went for a walk before supper.

In the theme of the day, we had spaghetti dinner, enjoying the fabulous sauce that Betty made the other day, then gave us the remainder. Our lovely day was topped off with fun times playing our card games with Betty and Denny.


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.
