Morning Job, Afternoon Visit

8/9/14 Saturday in East Stroudsburg,PA (Timothy Lake South-TT/OW)

Beautiful day again, but I spent all morning and some of the afternoon writing and posting the blog. Some days I wonder why I have to be so long winded and post so many photos.

When I finished I started to call a friend as a neighbor from across the street came over. He had a question and pretty soon we were all talking until supper time.

After supper John and I stretched our legs with a quick walk around the campground. Beautiful moon to light our way.

I didn’t get a picture of it (super moon coming tomorrow), but here’s one of some unique to me flowers from the Gifford Pinchot grounds.

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.
