Terasgree: What you say is true. If it weren't, I would be a great artist (instead of the genius that I am)

I knew about the 1st two. A talent is a gift from God. You can't be taught imagination.

If it ain't Rembrandt it ain’t no good. However, I have to admit my favorite old master painting just happens to be Van Gogh’s “The Starry Night”.

Van Gogh is my favorite. Kahlo grew on me quickly. Not all that familiar with Rousseau.
