Good Friday, a Day of Rest

4/3/15 Friday in Whitney, TX (Lake Whitney-TT)

John was cleaning our roof bright and early today. I’m impressed with his dedication to this project. Thankfully our cell phones were connecting (which means we also have our hot spot/internet) so I worked at the blog and our monthly bills check up.

We tried going to the Dinosaur Valley State Park to see dinosaur tracks, but I thought it was just a half hour away. When we were on our way I realized it would take an hour. It just didn’t seem worth the time and effort so we headed back home, then went beyond the turn off for TT to a Brookshire place with fuel and groceries. Everything is pretty far from here, so once again, it’s a great place for camping and little civilization.

It was a beautiful day, so when we got back home we took the car to the end of our main campground road and walked the trails to/from Lake Whitney.

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.
