An update on myself.
Am in Casper again and got checked out yesterday by the Orthopedic Surgeon and said everything is looking good. Will be back in 4 more weeks for more x-rays and another two weeks I get put back to sleep again to remove screws then back to cast. Worst part is I get to put no weight on foot till middle of January so will be improvising a way to get back to painting. Have several ideas but am sure experimentation is in the immediate future. Had to cancel out of a show this past weekend and am trying to figure out how to do a big one first of December.
Thanks for all the e-mails and good wishes from everyone.

I've been wondering how you were doing and am glad to hear your update. Good luck on finding ways to paint, but don't do anything to hamper the healing and make for a longer recuperation!

Miss seeing your beautiful paintings (and Wyoming landscape) - so you better figure out a way to start painting soon - or else!!! (Seriously, this sounds like a really bad injury, so just concentrate on healing, the rest can wait).
