    Just recently, I was reminded of that old remark which goes: "Painting realistically right from a photograph is being a zerox machine". Back then, I was painting my newest creation, that simply was from a photograph I acquired in the Phoenix Desert Botanical Gardens. Over half the way thru, my better half remarked that this work of art seemed to be identical to the picture. My husband intended this as a good compliment, nevertheless I regarded it as a two pronged blade. I asked myself if being a great artist wasn't a lot more than technical skill.<br><br>

    A "Randy Love Thread" got started in one of the other discussions, so I thought I'd make it a whole separate topic.  Chasers, please discuss your love for Randy.  I'll begin by saying probably none of us would be congregating here if it weren't for him (=BLAME RANDY).  That and he needs more solos.  Way, way more solos.  Okay, now your turn.

    His genius comedic timing...

    His glorious rich, chocolate-covered cello voice...
