Another Cold Blustery Day

5/3/14 Saturday in Wilmington, OH (Wilmington-TT)

With our not feeling well (John’s cough and my sore throat) and it being cold and blustery outside we settled in for a gentle morning of laundry, baking corn muffins and researching campgrounds for the last half of 2014. After lunch John made baked beans then went to Karen/Sherie’s. As I was washing the dishes they all, plus Debbie, came over to see my watercolor prints. Debbie even bought one! The other great thing is that my small sink (kitchen) has finally not draining at all. I asked John if he could try the new auger device we’d recently purchased. With Sherie’s moral support he worked it through both sinks and they cleared! Yay!

Then we all had a great time playing cards (inside Karen/Sherie’s rig).

Karen/Sherie had a lot of wood so they got a fire going in all that wind and we roasted hot dogs, then retired inside for our dinner. More card games then back home for bedtime.

A bit of springtime to keep up everyone’s spirits.

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.
