Happy Easter!

4/5/15 Sunday in Whitney, TX (Lake Whitney-TT)

We sincerely hope this was a time of rejoicing, of food, family and fun. Unfortunately John had a miserable night with his allergy symptoms. Plus church was far away (as well as our family), so we spent today ensconced in the RV, watching TV. It did rain last night (part of his horrible night of little sleep), so we’re hoping that knocked a lot of the pollen out of the air.

Our neighbor came over to help check out our surge protector issue. His (and Jeannie’s) problems are worse – his power keeps dropping out altogether. Not because of volts running high but because they are just dropping off. He doesn’t have a generator to help like we do.

We did have fun talking to Justin, seeing Lily and Gabe as well as Joe playing badminton via “Hangouts”. It helps to know we plan to be in Spokane by July.

We simply watched TV and rested the rest of the day.

Some Spring wildflowers-Blue Bonnets (growing right on the way into Lake Whitney Campground).

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.
