So Long Albuquerque

4/21/15 Tuesday in Tijeras,NM (Hidden Valley-ROD)

Beautiful sunny, calm day. Great for taking it easy before our big trip tomorrow. So since we did little of any significance except shop for groceries, I’ll post images of the Albuquerque area.

We did talk to HWH (our levelers/jacks). They said that we should NOT use silicone spray on the shafts (John had been), that it builds a gunk there. We must clean that off with a carburetor cleaner, then use WD40, wiping off any excess. If that doesn’t solve the issues then the jacks (s) probably need to be replaced. So we bought that cleaner while shopping.

We’re driving over 250 miles tomorrow-long for us. It will include 28 miles through the Petrified National Forest at 35 mph. Then we’ll be dry camping for 2 days. Hope all goes well.

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.
