Very Hot Day

5/30/15 Saturday in Hurricane,UT  (St. George RV Resort-RPI/KOA/$14/night)

I did several loads of wash today, but just hung them around the coach to dry, since it was just too hot to run the dryer. We went to St. George to check out their Farmer’s Market (nice items, but not much produce), then sat in a shaded parking lot while John got his computer work completed. I wanted to see the Temple, but it was crowded. I’m sure they had ceremonies happening, so we decided to return another day.

Back at home we just camped inside our air conditioned coach, John watched golf while I worked on the blog, then we watched “Back To The Future”. It got well over 90 degrees. In the evening we got together with Larry and Doris in the club house and played cards (“13” naturally). They’re leaving tomorrow, earlier than planned, to get out of this heat. We looked into that possibility for ourselves.

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.
