Holed Up

2/27/15 Friday in Wildwood, FL (Alliance Coach: Repairs)

Pretty cold (for us) today, averaging in the 50’s with an all-over-the-place wind. We did manage to pull up the jacks to dump our tanks and get propane. We watched Gonzaga vs San Diego (taped), when they won again. Only one loss in all their games (during OT, vs Arizona) this year. More TV and reading for the day. Butt getting sore. Need more exercise but still trying to get over this cold.  Maybe it’s the flu since it’s now over 2 weeks of congestion and feeling tired.

More blasts from the past (February 2014): Would it have been better to be holed up in Bok Gardens Tower, or Solomon’s Castle, or a Fire Truck? Not really.

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.
