Some painters transform the sun into a yellow spot, others transform a yellow spot into the sun.”   —   Pablo Picasso

(This one took me a long time to start!  Even though I was almost certain the B was the A, I just could not get the ball rolling.  Finally, I decided that the M was likely the E, and that WMAAJR was going to be FELLOW.  But, because of the AJ likely being LO, I thought I was dealing with Carlo someone!  It wasn’t until I was between 2/3 and 3/4 of the way done that I saw it was Pablo Picasso.  After TRANSFORM made me realize that it couldn’t be FELLOW, or even MELLOW, I spaced!  I started writing out unused letters; C, D, G . . .  Then, I had my V-8 moment!  It’s YELLOW, you dope!  Ay yi yi!  Sometimes I can’t see the forest for the trees!  Oh.  And does anyone doubt that Pablo put himself into that “others” category???  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I started with the 2 “the’s”and then “others” fell into place and then it wasn’t too hard. I was mad at myself for seeing “picasso” because I feel like I’m cheating if I use the person’s name.

    This was hard to get started on, UR. I initially tried I CANNOT instead of A YELLOW. But worthwhile once solved. I assume Picasso considered himself among the “other painters”!

    I didn’t even notice the “the”, or the “the” in “other”, until about a 1/4 done! — YUR
