Talent, I Has It?
Sometimes, you see your work and you think that you might actually have some skill and talent. Then, you see someone else’s work and you realize how much more talent they have than you do.
I think, that that’s the artist’s struggle isn’t it?
You always think that your stuff is not as good as other people’s stuff, so you work harder to make your stuff better.
Ultimately though, isn’t talent a subjective thing?
Talent, as an artist is not like talent at hitting a baseball. You can easily quantify whether or not someone can hit a baseball with cold hard numbers.
I think that you can subjectively judge a person’s artistic work, but what you think is garbage another person might view as a magnum opus.
I don’t know where I’m going with all this. I guess, all I want is for you to blow sunshine up my butt. Like Cmdr. Viper did to Maverick in Top Gun.
