Birthday Dinner at Giovanni’s

1/13/15 Tuesday in Wauchula,FL (Peace River Preserve-TT)

I started my day off with line dancing class. Fun! John was reading. It’s been his Louis L’Amour books but now he’s started “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest” by Stieg Larsson. He also sprayed the Rust Reformer and Rust-oleum paint on our step, having cleaned it yesterday. Yea!

Later we struggled to get the bubble type insulation we’ placed in our cabinets and closet to stick to the ceiling places, using velcro. Our first try led to everything falling. On our next try, I tried to put up the velcro again without putting it together, so the glue would have 24 hours to “cure.” Unfortunately, John wasn’t on the same wave length and put the velcro together before the 24 hours were up so when I checked, everything was falling down again. Sigh.

Our dinner was lots of fun. We met Karen/Sheri’s friends Patti and Eilene at Giovanni’s. Great company and great pizza!!! Wonderful end to a really quiet day.

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.
