TV Show Binge

5/3/15 Sunday in Cottonwood, AZ (Verde Valley-TT)

Something I didn’t mention when we went to Mass last Sunday, the priests at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church love to sprinkle holy water at the beginning. I mean they aim the sprinkler at every single person. They laugh. We laugh. This time Father even sprinkled his assistant! They like to sing too, so all the Mass parts are sung, something usually done on special occasions.

At home I got the blog posted and then, since it was a weekend and very hot we didn’t want to leave the campground or be outside. John watched the local TV in the bedroom (golf) while I caught up watching our tapes of Amazing Race in the living room. He really doesn’t like that show, so he wanted to be away from it when I watched. It was nice, but I felt so lazy.

After supper we visited with Bill/Theresa, at our place. That was a lot of fun.

Some more desert flowers to entertain you:

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.
