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.

I get paid over $113 per hour working from home with 3 kids at home. I never thought I'd be able to do it but my best friend who earns over 15k a month doing this and she convinced me to try. The potential with this is endless. Heres what I've been doing.. ↓↓↓↓COPY THIS WEBSITE↓↓↓↓ HERE►

And why is it they had to be educated???? Artistic flair is usually something one is born with.

martygatorgeode, more talented than Van Gogh? Rubbish

These artists may be famous and their paintings may sell for lots of money but it is obvious they had very little training. There are many artists who are not famous but more talented than these three

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”.

This makes no sense at all: Van Gogh entered an art academy, which he left several months earlier???????

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