Goodby Wagon’s West

6/8/15 Monday in Fillmore,UT (Wagon’s West-EA/PPA/$23/night)

Beautiful day, sunny yet not too hot. I cleaned house while John golfed at the nearby Paradise Golf Course. He did pretty well, even met a guy to golf with when he arrived. We pretty much sat around the rest of the day. I read outside while John watched TV inside. The campground was pretty empty. We’d considered exploring the nearby desert, but the heat and thought that tomorrow would be a travel day discouraged us.

This is the little goat who’d gotten stuck in the fence corner the other day. I’d gone to get help, letting campers know of his predicament as I walked to the office.  By the time I and the owner arrived, the goat was free.  The campers had walked over to the fence to see him and their dog scared him so that he ducked his head and got out of the fence!


Time to say Goodby to Wagon’s West, a lovely campground, run by a very sweet couple.  We’re starting our trek home, moving frequently, tomorrow.


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.
