Clean Headlights

5/23/15 Saturday in Pahrump, NV (Preferred RV Resort-ROD)

Quiet morning of the usual, with lots of time spent on the blog. In the afternoon I cleaned Miss Journey’s headlights by brushing them with toothpaste, rinsing that off, then applying a car wax, to help them get shiny. Then I made macaroni salad to have easy little heat meals with the coming weather predicted to be HOT. I enjoyed a fun book outdoors. I bet you know what John did all this time…watched TV while figuring things on his computer. Supper was a fun one: hamburgers with our macaroni salad, then a walk to make a complete evening.

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.
