My thanks to TT_Mac (www.flickr.com/photos/j_mac_tt/6514098065/in/photostream) for inspiring this painting!!!! THANK YOU TT! Please stop by to see some incredible photographs from TT!

It's been a roller coaster of a holiday for us. We've had some incredibly joyful times with our grands and visits with family.

But my mom has been ill. Just before Christmas she had a fall, fracturing her hip and requiring a partial hip replacement. She was doing quite well in rehab, but then fell ill with an infection. Just before Christmas Day, her infection worsened and she was rushed to the hospital. For a few days, we weren't quite sure if she would recover.

As of last night, she seems to be making a bit of progress - though it's slow going. I'm heading out of town to visit her for several days and will be MIA.

Thank you all for your kind thoughts and prayers on my mom's behalf. At 88 years old, these set backs take a long time to work through.

Hope your holidays were joyous ...

Stay well!

Incredibly beautiful painting Lin. The foggy look is something I've never mastered but then I don't practice like you have and do. I am so delighted to see each new painting you produce -- you never disappoint -- each new painting is a masterpiece. Thank you so very much for a wonderful year of glorious art.

I am keeping you and your mom in my heart and sending positive energy your way for healing and comfort.
Much love,
Lorraine

What a beautiful painting, Lin. A misty atmosphere is maybe my favorite kind of painting. It looks very sumi-e to me.We'll all enjoy it and marvel at it until you return.

I am so sorry to hear about your Mom. And I am hoping that the recovery keeps on and goes faster.

Hopes and prayers,
annie
