“Goo Gone” Saves the Day

1/11/15 Sunday in Wauchula,FL (Peace River Preserve-TT)

This morning, after our easy (frozen) pancakes, I worked at cleaning up sticky residue left on the wood below our bed. It was left by the prior owner. “Goo Gone” and paper towels work well together, then a final clean up with soapy rag and wipe dry. John watched the Seahawks’ game, having looked up on this phone in the middle of the night for the score: they won 31-17! Great game!!! I worked on my blog entries after that.

After lunch we went grocery shopping, plus a few repair items (sticky putty and velcro, along with Rust Reformer (converts rust to metal) and Rust-oleum black paint). Very helpful employees showed us right where our very specific items resided. Back at home we watched the Green Bay Packers vs Cowboys. Now we know that the Seahawks will be playing against the Packers.

Before supper I managed to get the bad sticky off the wood at the kitchen cabinets. Feels so good!


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.
