Personally I couldn't paint my way out of a paper bag. But a Wacom tablet is a great help when editing photos and I've read where artists say that after using one, they'd never go back to working with a mouse alone.Better to die on your feet than live on your knees.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...=wacom&x=0&y=0 you can get a Intuos3 4x6 for $209.00. I've had the Intuos3 6x8 for a couple years now and it makes life a lot easier. I don't know if you've bought from Newegg or not. Over the last 10 years I've bought thousands of dollars of hardware from them . GREAT people to do business with. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. You order in the morning and it goes out that day. Cheap shipping too.Better to die on your feet than live on your knees.

And as an aside.
by Nikos Kazantzakis (1885-1957) from Zorba the Greek]
I remember one morning when I discovered a cocoon in the back of a
tree just as a butterfly was making a hole in its case and preparing
to come out. I waited awhile, but it was too long appearing and I was
impatient. I bent over it and breathed on it to warm it. I warmed it as
quickly as I could and the miracle began to happen before my eyes,
faster than life. The case opened; the butterfly started slowly
crawling out, and I shall never forget my horror when I saw how its
wings were folded back and crumpled; the wretched butterfly tried
with its whole trembling body to unfold them. Bending over it, I tried
to help it with my breath, in vain.
It needed to be hatched out patiently and the unfolding of the wings
should be a gradual process in the sun. Now it was too late. My
breath had forced the butterfly to appear all crumpled, before its time.
It struggled desperately and, a few seconds later, died in the palm of
That little body is, I do believe, the greatest weight I have on my
conscience. For I realize today that it is a mortal sin to violate the
great laws of nature. We should not hurry, we should not be
impatient, but we should confidently obey the external rhythm.
"I sat on a rock to absorb this New Years's thought. Ah, if only that little butterfly could always flutter before me to
show me the way."

I haven't watched South Park in a very long time, yet that was for some reason the first thing that came to my mind when I saw the picture. :o"If you bound the arms and legs of gold-medal swimmer Michael Phelps, weighed him down with chains, threw him in a pool and he sank, you wouldn't call it a 'failure of swimming'. So, when markets have been weighted down by inept and excessive regulation, why call this a 'failure of capitalism'?"
