Meet the Artist by ElbenherzArt Meet the Artist by ElbenherzArt
Group pressure. All my friends are doing it. Felt like an outsider, so here you go!

I started this thing last week but couldn’t continue because I worried about my extremely sick cat. She died monday. I couldn’t bring it over my heart to erase her out of the meme so she stays as an little angel. <3
I’m still heartbroken and I’m crying all the time.

This piece is lovely - I don't comment much. The first thing I noticed was the kitty angel. I wanted to express my condolences for your loss. I can empathize. I lost my Jasper early December.... I'm working on a few pieces I haven't had the time or ability to finish yet. But I understand not being able to leave her out. I'm so glad you didn't.

I'm still sad and heartbroken all the time too. Thank you for sharing.:heart:

Aww thank you so much for your kind words. They are much appreciated.
I'm sorry for your loss too. I bet your Jasper was an amazing and loving cat. He will always be by your side. <3 Maybe he and my Luna are playing together now in cat heaven.

He was, and Luna was too, I'm sure! 
I bet they are playing, and waiting for us. :heart:

Elben, I am just your every day person and supporter passing by to say something "not so big" to you but I will say this anyways: "You must be the most kindest, sweetest, one of the bestest people anyone has ever looked up to and would support you deep from their hearts for. Judging from your informatiom, you must be a really gentle and friendly woman anyone would not help but feel innocence from. The fact that I do not know Luna and the fact that she has passed has convinced me to know that hope is with her and I know she is still with you to this very day not just in spirit but in your heart and your spirit no matter how far you go, no matter who you become amd no matter what fate will show for you. I do know your art is really good, it makes me want to be just like you one day and hopefully make me want to try to be open while an introverted person. Thank you so much for all of this and I hope you and Luna have a wonderful time in your futures... same for everyone else seeing Elben's art!" :):D:heart:

This comment is one of the nicest things someone ever said to me. It really made my day so much brighter. Thank you so much for taking the time and writing it. It means so, so much. I wish there were more people like you out there who not just scroll by, but really appreciate what they see. This is so much more worth than a million likes and favs. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I'm pretty sure you are an amazing person as well! And there is nothing wrong with being an introvert. I'm one too. <3 Do what ever makes you happy!

I could've said better words myself! I really want people like you to be happy and never down no matter what comes up to you deeply and hurts you in that deep side. What I'm trying to say is If Only The World Was Not a Perfect World But a Happy Kid. A good friend once told me it's ok to be the person you are as an adult doing adult things and such but it doesn't hurt to have a child heart and mind. Usually adults have depressing and unfreeable minds and some like it? Me, as a teenager, I wouldn't and don't. I'm sure you WANT to do something you love too deeply and not something you HAVE to do, ya know? Feel free to do whatever you want, okay? :D Do what your heart tells you to and what you desire. I don't think you need any hardwork as your talent comes to you.. and you haven't reaized it.. it's your hearts choice.. not what the outer mind says. :) That's the public's words, not your's. Listen to your's! :meow:

Some adults are just adults because they let themselves be pressed into roles society expects them to fulfill. If you don't want to lose your inner child, then you never will. Even as a mother or father of children. I'm 28, turning 29 in two weeks and I'm just feeling the same way as I did when I was a teenager. I may have a more matured view of the world and of how things works...but my interests never changed. It's all just about the way you want to be. : )
I really appreciate your words though! 
But don't get fooled about the talent thing! 10 years ago I couldn't draw a damn thing. It's really just practice and persistence that makes your art better. It's never talent. Just work. Some people may learn faster than others but in the end, everyone can be anything if they just give it a try and never give up upon in! If you want to be a great artist, then you will be a great artist! : )

Sure.

The first year is missing though. It was mostly bad pencil drawings. But if you stick with it you get better very quickly.

Let me give you one last line:

"TALENT
Don't bother about whether or not you have it. Just assume that you do, and then forget about it. Talent is a word we use *after* someone has become accomplished. There is no way to detect it before the fact, or when someone is still grappling with the learning process. It is impossible to predict when or if mastery will click into place. Besides, the thing we label as talent is not a single ability. It is a complex mixture of motive, curiosity, receptivity, intelligence, sensitivity, good teaching, perseverance, timing, sheer luck and countless other things. If any part of it is genetic, God-given, the result of astrological fiddle-faddle, fate or destiny, that part is not the sole determining factor. All the other ingredients must be present in the right combination -- and no one knows the exact recipe. Therefore Dear Reader, don't waste time worrying if you are talented -- and don't blame any failures on the lack of it -- that is *really* a cop out.
Artistic skill -- the ability to draw well and make paint behave, is not a natural endowment like big blue eyes or great legs. Nor is it a special knack you simply have or do not have, like a "green thumb," a "natural sense of rhythm," or "surgeon's hands" (Those things are nonsense too.) Neither does it matter whether your parents, grandparents or any of your ancestors were artists -- except insofar as they may have motivated you, taught you, or served as role models. You can learn the skills required for painting in the same way you can learn anything else you are strongly drawn to. I don't mean to underestimate the difficulties, however. The great painters devoted their lives to their art, often to the point of total obsession. Serious painting is not something that can be learned casually. You must be willing to sacrifice many other things."

-Richard Schmid, Alla Prima
