New Business/Friend Cards

4/8/15 Wednesday in Thackerville,OK (Red River Ranch-ROD)

Last night I saw a beautiful sunset and a sweet sunrise this morning.


John cleaned the bugs off our windshield (he noted that they really have a suicide complex on our route to OK) as I worked at computer projects. Amazing how little getting-along-in-life things keep cropping up.

We went grocery shopping before lunch, then John read as I designed and printed our new “business” cards to reflect our new RV and my new watercolor site:

It was windy and raining, so we relaxed the rest of the afternoon. Our friends arrived at 4:30pm, in the rain. They’d stopped somewhere for lunch. As soon as they’d set up they brought John’s Silverleaf package and we arranged to get together after supper. John tried to get his new Silverleaf working, to no avail.

We had a lovely visit that night and considered checking out Eisenhower’s birthplace in Denison, TX. Nobody was all that crazy about going to the free breakfast at Winstar so that idea was bagged.

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.
