Rhea, you big fibber, you know you are an artist! I'm still waiting for you to e-mail pictures of your art. Ady, I can't draw either; you don't have to have talent to do landscapes with oil, and it's very rewarding. I learned by watching public t.v., and some of my paintings have been auctioned for charity. The world doesn't believe it's possible to produce a decent landscape (to the untrained eye)without talent, so people think I'm good. Artists know better. They're polite about it, though. You can do it! It's a wonderful hobby. p.s. Get odorless paint thinner, but expect a headache anyhow! It's worth it.
