Pioneer Park and Card Game “13”

2/16/14 Sunday at Wauchula, FL (Peace River-TT)

Cold morning for Florida – 37 degrees when we got up around 7:30 am. We spent the whole morning watching our taped Olympics while I also worked on the blog.

After lunch we explored nearby Pioneer Park in Wauchula. They have several old buildings and an old train there. Unfortunately the Cracker Trail Museum is only open M-F so we’ll come back tomorrow to see that.

For the afternoon we luxuriated in the beautiful sunny 73 degree weather playing cards (“13”) with Naomi/Phil at their site. At night we watched more taped Olympics – and we’re still about a week behind!


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.
