Spring Day

3/31/14 Monday Arley, AL (Hidden Cove-TT/MA)

John wanted to play golf today but he found out the golf course is 50 minutes away. Not worth it. So he’s watching golf that he taped yesterday while I worked on the blog on into the afternoon. Finally got to my light housecleaning. The day had grown into a beautiful sunny spring day (70’s) so I played hooky and sat out in the shade facing the lake reading my next book. John enjoyed his old time TV shows and played with ideas on our trek in 2015. Leftover spaghetti supper without wine or Parmesan cheese because we’ve been holding off getting all our groceries until we are near a bigger grocery store.



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.
