Get Well, Mom

Eh. I got nothin' today.
I'm going to hand over the blog to my mom, who's been suffering from a dreadful cold for over a week, and finally went to the doctor today. I haven't heard from her or my dad, which is probably a sign that nothing too serious is going on. Good.
Mom is a talented watercolorist (she did this painting of grapes just a few years ago), although she's been away from the drawing board for some time, due to difficulties with her cataract surgery. And now this cold. Poor dear.
I'm looking forward to a fresh batch of food paintings, so get well, and get on it, mom!

Sending my best wishes to your mum. Hope she get's better soon x

This is the second artwork i've seen of your mum's. They're both fantastic. Eye catching. They're so lifelike. She's so talented.

Dear CookieMom
My thoughts are with you. I hope you mend well.
Lots of love, Sam x

Sorry to hear about your mom. I had bronchitis/sinus infection/borderline pneumonia last month, so I totally feel her pain.

On the upside, gorgeous painting! My grandmother was big into watercolors too. That grape one would look fantastic on a bottle of wine. :)

I think she'll be fine. Judging by the fact that this morning my dad is already back to sending spam jokes.
Thanks, everybody. I'll be sure my mom sees all your well-wishes.

My mom got sick last weekend, too. Bad time of year for moms, sounds like.

Great painting, as usual. Get well Cookie's Mom!

Thanks, Lisa, b'gina and Sam's mum! She's doing better already.
PS: Sam's Mum -- another photo of Bean Sprout went up today, but it's not adorable.
