Catching Up and Relaxing

4/12/14 Saturday in Hohenwald,TN (Natchez Trace-TT)

This morning I continued progress on our laundry and finally got my blog writing/posting all caught up. That sure felt good! John watched TV after cleaning the bugs off our front windshield.

For the afternoon we took a hike (rather hilly place) around the campground. John found a Louis L’Amour book at the book exchange, I found “Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff About Money”. I’m still reading “The Girl Who Played With Fire” though. The rest of our afternoon was like yesterday: I was outside in the sun reading while John stayed inside watching TV, mostly golf. No rain after supper, thankfully. It’s been breezy but lovely warm temperatures.


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.
