i also think that as L. Michael Gipson said true artists are born, one can learn and study technique, but this does not make you an artist…it is our natural, innate drive, passion and talent for a particular form of artisitc expression. as far as his reference to the apparent tendency towards mental instability, i think it may be because as artists we are open to the sensate, sensual and spiritual in a way that others usually aren’t…..if we don’t temper and pay attention to this vulnerability it can consume us
