Natural? I'll take that as a great compliment from you. I say my talent is natural in that it is self-made.

Thank you.

Yes..self-taught to a certain extent. I doubt if many could have painted that candle...that's natural talent. Dear friend, not many could do what you can do even after years of study and training.
