Rainy Day Fun

10/11/14 Saturday in Gloucester,VA (Chesapeake Bay RV Resort-TT)

I finally finished writing and posting my blog entries. Whew! That took all morning. It’s a rainy day, so it worked out well.

We took a good 2 mile stroll around the campground. On our way we knocked on Ken/Faye’s door. They were home!! We agreed to meet at the clubhouse to play cards tomorrow in the afternoon. Back at the RV we got into a couple projects: John worked his A1C test and found out his blood sugar is at 5.8. It’s really good to be under 6. I tackled a job I’d been wanting to complete for some time: I took the screen off our Fantastic Fans (unscrew the 8 screws), washing it in warm soapy water, then cleaning the fan blades of their black dirt. Ah, they look so good now. I also made more corn muffins, then we watched a couple hours of “The Roosevelts…” Normal TV after our supper. The retired life sure can be lazy!

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.
