Spring is Coming

3/23/15 Monday in Columbus, TX (Colorado River-TT)

As I was walking back to our rig before breakfast I got a phone call, so settled down at the picnic table to talk. Pretty soon I saw those sweet deer, gallivanting and chasing one another in the meadow now far from our side yard. So fun to watch. The sun is out in full force so the birds were having a grand time singing as well. I love this place and this site!

Inside the Miss Journey I managed breakfast and my other morning jobs, including posting to the blog. After lunch I went outside to read in the sunshine and made a couple phone calls while John watched his old TV shows. Lovely, restful, 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.
