I have my new deck and cover pretty well finished thanks to my Gallery Pardner, Tom Lucas who is a master carpenter. This was the project that innocently left me to my present demise. Crutches and all. It is sure a great addition to the studio though.

I have put the finishing touches on this Oil Painting I call, DOWNS MOUNTAIN. It is a 9"x12" Oil Painting and is a view from several photos I took earlier this fall from Horse Creek looking towards the Wind River Mountins and Downs Mountain which is over 13,000 feet elevation and is the location of the northern most glaciers that make up the largest continuous glacial fields in the continental United States.

I have just completed my first painting since my injury and am amazed at how long it is taking to do art under the circumstances I find myself in. Pretty uncomfortable. We take so much for granted when things are rolling along. It is surprising to me that something as simple sounding as a crushed heel can create such problems. I have several other paintings started but am just happy to be able to post this piece. It is a painting of Yellowstone from some photos I took earlier this fall and thought I would add in the snow. The scene is of the Midway Geyser Basin and I call it "NOVEMBER1 AT MIDWAY". The painting is 12"x24" Gouache watercolor

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.
