Draw a line in CImage object

I have used CImage class to create a 8-bits mask object. Now I am going to draw lines on this mask using a method called "DrawTrack (int xStart, int yStart, int xEnd, int yEnd)". My problem is, After I use LineTo method to draw the line, I cannot see this line is drawn in the mask picture. Anyone know the reason?
BOOL CMapBuilder::DrawTrack(int xStart, int yStart, int xEnd, int yEnd)
{
	BOOL ret = FALSE;
	HDC hDC = NULL;
	hDC = m_TrackMask.GetDC();
	CDC* memoryDC = CDC::FromHandle(hDC);
	
	memoryDC->SetDCPenColor((COLORREF)255);
	memoryDC->MoveTo(xStart, yStart);
	ret  = memoryDC->LineTo(xEnd, yEnd);
	m_TrackMask.ReleaseDC();
	//COLORREF color = m_TrackMask.GetPixel(0, 0); // For testing
	return ret;
}
