Still Chillin’

2/4/14 Tuesday at Kissimmee, FL (Sherwood Forest RV Resort-Encore)

After breakfast we dashed off to the lodge for the manager’s meeting. We were a bit late and wouldn’t you know it was packed. This manager is a go getter, doing lots to help improve her park. We got to talking with the couple across from us. They’ve been here since 2006, coming every winter.

Today I mounted enough ambition to clean/condition all our wood surfaces. Well, all in the living/dining/kitchen area. By lunch I was pretty tuckered and decided to do the rest later. John watched taped TV shows during all my efforts. I got enticed and joined him watching, Star Trek, the Beginning, movie after stopping my work. By then, late afternoon, it was pretty hot inside (record highs for this date-85 degrees) even with our A/C on, so I walked to the lodge (better A/C and free WiFi) to do my monthly bill review and catch up on my Internet reading (translation: my email and others’ blogs).

This evening we had our mudslide drinks then took a walk in the dark, starlit night. Nice.

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.
