    Bill Alexander too. The guy was amazing - and not just his high-speed painting techniques.

    He said something that has rung with me for many years: You have to have darkness in order to see the light. I found that to be most profound.

    I remember both of 'em. They made it look so easy, I tried but never got the hang of it.

    I'd usually tune him in when I wanted to take a nap. The guy's voice would put an insomniac out for the count.

    When I was a chitlin', it was John Gnagy Learn to Draw on TV. And that was black and white LOL.

    I enjoy the man and his philosophy.
