Happy St. Patrick’s Day and FMCA Rally in Perry, GA

3/17-20 Monday through Thursday at Unadilla,GA (Southern Trails Resort-ROD)

Starting on this very cold, very rainy St. Patrick’s Day with the FMCA (Family Motor Coach Association) Rally. We were crazy busy (alarm to get up at 6 am) starting with 8 am classes and continuing until 8 pm looking at coaches. So miserably cold and with very wet feet, we drove our car back home to pack our lunches and get to bed to start at the same hour Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday we slept in a bit but still were at the Rally. We enjoyed great classes (I’ll try to share some info later). We saw wonderful entertainment: The Texas Tenors and Sarah Getto. Most stressful, we were on the verge of buying a different rig about 3 times, but backed away because they were either older (2008), longer (42′ tag axle) or more expensive than we felt comfortable with. I’ve learned that if a salesman knows you are serious they will direct you to the closest RV they have to your parameters then push hard towards closing – just give it a drive, just sit down and work the numbers. It’s their job but sheesh – they do this day after day and we RVers attempt it only a few times (we are buying a house at house prices).


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.
