Rain All Day, Yay!

9/16/15  (Wednesday) in Redding, CA ( Redding RV -EA)

This should help with those wildfires in California, the state we will be in for some time now. I love the sound of rain. Doing wash and baking my yummy pumpkin seed muffins. because of the full hook ups and cool weather opportunity. I had such fun homemaking today! John enjoyed watching – me, the TV and his computer, not so much the rain. We dashed out into that rain (and California traffic) to Safeway and Costco for some groceries. Items sure seem more expensive here than in Washington and Oregon. Oh, we also hit Lowe’s for a new refrigerator filter. Wonderful, cozy day in our “tiny house”.


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.
