More Sunshine

2/10/14 Monday at Kissimmee, FL (Sherwood Forest RV Resort-Encore)

Another beautiful sunny day. This morning I did a quick housecleaning then we got our haircuts at Great Clips. We had a lazy afternoon, taking our campground walk then John watched TV while I read outside. Here is the sweet Red Bellied Woodpecker that kept me company.

For supper we went out to Logan’s Roadhouse (love their $13.99 special for 2 dinners) with RV friends Linda and Ove. Wonderful visit. We’ll see them again when we go to Orlando February 18th.  Tomorrow we’re off to Peace River RV in Wachula, FL, not too far away thankfully.

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.
