Oil painting on linen on board (8" x 10") From the archives
"My husband, Karl, is still very weak but has stayed on this plateau for two days. The doctor is hoping to discharge him from the hospital on Monday, June 28th to a rehab facility for a few weeks. I can recoup my energy while Karl is being taken care of by others and hopefully we can go back to the way we were together here at home. Tomorrow is a day for Nora and not going to the hospital until late afternoon. . . . I would like to paint maybe a small painting."
