Selection Sunday and Good By Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park

3/15/15 Sunday in Robert, LA (Passport To Leisure-RPI ($11/night))

Beautiful day. Love all the birdsong in the morning. Mass was at Holy Ghost Catholic Church. I thought we didn’t say Holy Ghost any more… maybe this is their name from years ago. Anyway, it’s near Eastern Louisiana University so just as I thought, we had wonderful music. The thing is everything was loud here. Like every sound was absorbed in our last church, here it reverberated. So it was great to be able to sing loud and not being heard above everyone else. They had the most beautiful stained glass windows I can remember. So much to look for in them. Again, most of the light came through these windows, although there were a couple plain windows at the back.

Projects today: blog, report rock chip in front windshield, try to schedule repairman for fridge in Lake Whitney, TX, where we might be staying long enough for such a repair and replace our TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) batteries with fresh ones. Unfortunately it appears 2 of the 10 sensors have gone bad. I even made corn muffins.

Selection Sunday for NCAA basketball teams. Gonzaga is seeded at #3, in the Western Region. Yay!

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.
