Strawberries


Strawberries
Originally uploaded by linfrye.
It is difficult to imagine the challenge I had with painting strawberries -- I must be far more flagged than I'm willing to admit. Anyway, the color, scent and taste cheered me -- as I was lost for a while last night in my painting frustrations, relegating family health matters to the back of my mind.

This morning - 9:00 a.m. Update:

Mom - apparently her attack was worse than we thought. She'll be in the hospital UNTIL her infection clears and then the doctors will decide if surgery will be necessary.

Ken - not doing very well and is not expected to continue his battle

My granddaughter - doing better - but still no sleep for anyone

Brother in law - in surgery

To add weight to the woes, my good friend's daughter has become ill adding to the list of folks for whom our hearts surge ...

Tonight is a busy workshop and very late evening ...

Your strawberries are wonderful and I'm glad you had a little time of "mind rest" while working on them. You and all those you hold dear are in my prayers!
