Every child is an artist.  The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.”   —   Pablo Picasso

(I might add the word *naturally* between “is” and “an”, in that first sentence.  The problem being that too many adults – including parents sometimes – try to impose too many limitations/restrictions on children.  Stay within the lines!  No, Joanie, the sky is NOT green!  Those colors don’t go together!  Etc., etc.  The unencumbered child can embrace their naivete, and unleash their imagination, to create wondrous things.  And, hopefully, hold on to those qualities as they grow up.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

All children are artists.  The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.”   —   Pablo Picasso

(“He”, huh?  Well, I guess it’s pretty well known that Picasso was at least a male chauvinist.  Some say even a misogynist, but I don’t think so.  And, yes.  There is a big difference, despite what the current influencers might say.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

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

Answer:  KHAN ARTIST

(A terrific stinky pun!  Very smart Jumble.  Art fraud is very big business.  All of today’s clue words are old favorites, and two of the jumbles have definitely been used before.  It looks like “theyf” and “kahik” are new though.  The answer letter layout is a beautiful jumble too.  I don’t think it gave away anything.  The cartoon shows that – above all else – cartoonists are artists.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  I’ve been a fan of Picasso’s since I was five or six years old, as a copy of Three Musicians hung prominently in the music room of my elementary school.  I love the dogs in the painting.  The guitar player stands out, and the one guy seems to be playing a clarinet.  But, I never quite got what the third musician was playing.  Can anybody enlighten me?   —   YUR

I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it.”   —   Pablo Picasso

(Actually, the oldest form of education!  When there aren’t instructions, and there’s no one to teach us, trial and – usually– error is the way we learn.  So, be bold.  Don’t be afraid to try, try again!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Without knowing, I’d say that this statement has to do with Picasso’s explanation of Cubism.  So many of the Cubist paintings have additional dimensions to them, giving them a feeling of sculpture.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
