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.
