Fun With Friends

10/4/14 Saturday in Gloucester,VA (Chesapeake Bay RV Resort-TT)

It was supposed to rain all day, but the weather decided on a different timing and arrived early, last night. Plus, it was just a light rain. SO we were blessed with a fairly sunny day. Still, I needed to work on the blog this morning while John read and watched some TV shows.

During the afternoon we played cards with Dale and Betty. We taught them “13” and they taught us “7”. We really HAVE to get together tomorrow to get a better grip on our new games. Such fun. Normal evening of supper and TV. Getting cold, with predictions of a pretty cold day tomorrow.  Isn’t Chesapeake Bay RV Resort pretty?  You see this when you first drive in.

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.
