Sea Day – heading to Fiji

4/26/19 – Friday

Again we got in our exercising. I also added a Stretch and Release class while John went to a talk on Hawaii and Vancouver. We both enjoyed the Test Kitchen project “Flavors of the Mediterranean” with special hints for olive oil in vinaigrette. We got to attend a special Indonesian Brunch because we were part of the “Discovery Collection” guests (those who were traveling the 2 cruises of New Zealand and crossing the Pacific Ocean). We watched another movie in the theater: “6 Days and 7 Nights”. It was entertaining, light. The show after dinner was Patrick McMahon (an Australian) again. Lots of John’s favorite music. I enjoyed it as well.

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.
