Normal Sunday for us: pancake breakfast (this time with turkey bacon), church then lunch. Then the fun started: we went to Greg/Marcia’s rig to let them know we were ready for the afternoon and got to visiting. After lots of fun sharing they realized they needed to get to the grocery store. It just so happened that Paul and Barbara had returned to their (new to them coach), so we came out to meet them. Greg introduced us and away we all went with more conversation. When there was a small break Marcia reminded Greg that they still needed to go get those groceries, so off they went while John and I just kept on visiting with Paul/Barbara – outside their rig, inside their rig, inside our rig…until I realized I was starving so we split to get some food whipped up.

Boy, it gets dark soon so we just settled into watching the Seahawks vs Giants game. In the middle we had a fun visit with our son. Since he was also watching the game, after a while we all got back to the game. The beginning was tight but then the Seahawks really took the rushing game to all time highs and won 38-17!!! Greg/Marcia were watching the Packers game (they’re from Wisconsin) and we noted that the Packers won by an even larger margin, 55-14!


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.
