Watery Landscape

1/8 Sheet
Arches 140#CP

Though I am 'close' to the Atlantic ocean and the marshes I love, l find it difficult to leave the hospital to venture around town, even though Mike is doing beautifully well ...somehow, my mind won't let me 'play' while I'm here for parenting and supporting purposes. But I view the harbor from the waiting room window and beyond that, I can just about see those watery marshes. This painting is somewhat based on experience and memory.

Mike continues to improve -- hopefully, he'll have improved enough to be allowed water and liquids today. He walks the halls several times a day, even took a shower yesterday, and has reduced his pain med intake so he is MUCH more cogent. Really good news!

His wife stays with him when I'm out to lunch or dinner and I am with Mike while she's on break. His dad and step-mom also relieve us -- so things are good. I am painting a bit - but it's a bit challenging space-wise -

Not sure when Mike will be released - probably after he's been eating and has other functions return on their own.

Again, many thanks for all your good wishes and thoughts!

That's terrific news Lin and hello to Charles holding the fort at home!

It's amazing how fast Mike is recovering and I continue to send healing wishes for a complete recovery and cure. It's good that he has you all to keep him company and walk the halls with him.

Beautiful serene, soft painting and I'm glad you have a good view from Mike's room to paint although I'm sure there is a lot in your mind you could call up!
Big hugs,
Lorraine
