Recap. My point: An artist is someone who is naturally gifted with artistic talent. Usually no true artists possesses the hubris to say that about themselves personally. My point: you can’t raise a person to be an artist; it is a natural gift that can’t be forced. Nor manufactured; when it is and there’s no real marked artistic ability there, all products of this endeavor will be anomalies of true creativity…and sadly, there are those of the same pretentiousness who will applaud this contrived efforts. The artistic heelots.
