I believe

that what makes someone an artist is not great ideas alone, but rather a combination of ideas and technique.  Inspiration comes and goes so quickly.  In everyone.  Every single person has great ideas.  The person that can recognize and capture the idea, that has the technique ready and waiting to bring it from the inside out into the world, to me, that is the artist that I aspire to be.
