Rio Colorado Restaurant in Hohenwald.

4/21/14 Monday in Hohenwald,TN (Natchez Trace-TT)

On my early morning walk I saw a flock (maybe 50) of goldfinches. So small and pretty. At other times we saw a pair of California quail and a fox – on the campground. Just a lovely place.

Light cleaning this morning and catching up the blog. In the afternoon John got our water filters installed and read while I researched RVs. Got tired of all that inside stuff so took a walk to Vern and Beth’s (John stayed at home and made a repair to our electronic wire holder) and visited awhile. They’re going to Diamond Caverns tomorrow, just like we are. We’re both taking the Trace north because it’s such a pleasant drive.

Special treat; we went out to dinner with Marie and her brother and wife at a great Mexican Restaurant in Hohenwald. Worth the ½ hour drive. Great prices for really well flavored food. Hard to quit. I wasn’t as thrilled with my fried catfish more because it was in a heavier batter than I’m used to. I prefer the light cornmeal batter I enjoyed at Chef Tony’s near Arly, AL. Amazing beans and guacamole. So give the place a try if you’re in the area.

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.
