Celebration FL

2/5/14 Wednesday at Kissimmee, FL (Sherwood Forest RV Resort-Encore)

I got the rest of the woodwork taken care of this morning. That sure does feel good. Everything looks so nice. Our neighbor told us about a movie at Clubhouse #2 (didn’t realize it existed) on Saturday: Captain Phillips. Can’t wait! We took our walk before lunch-checking out where this clubhouse is. It’s a good mile away. Another hot, muggy day. Here’s a view from our walk.

For the afternoon we enjoyed exploring the Disney town of Celebration which is very near Kissimmee. This town was conceived by Disney but apparently it’s not quite as he had planned. We even know an RV couple who live there. Our favorite part was the fountain where the kids entertained us for quite a while.

Celebration. Downtown is at the corner of Market and Celebration Ave, which intersects with Hwy 192.

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.
