Being an artist is not being a member of some outsiders secret group. We are basically people communicating. Even the most awkward, out of shape, lethargic dancer can express in movement some quintessence that is man. We who are less than John Singer Sargent or Picasso still make art. What is important is the oneness of man creating. Sure a somewhat lofty distance exists between a "great master" and a daily painter but we all share the same title "Artist". So in my opinion we are basically made of the same stuff as someone like Degas and for us with hard work and intelligences , genius may be only one year and a painting away.
