    My Girlfriend's Talent



    Here is my girlfriend, her name is Karen and her special talent is painting. Now I'm not much of a painter and she doesn't feel as though her art is as good as it is. I personally think it's really great but she says I'm saying that cause I'm her boyfriend.






    Do you guys think that her artwork is good? Do we have any other painters here?

    She's fallen victim to something most artists do. Being your own worst critic.

    Those are pretty good. Should tell her to stop putting herself down, or just flat out tell her she's wrong. I know that somewhat contradicts what most people think you should be saying to your girlfriend... but this is one of those cases where I think it'll be okay.

    Odd coming from me though since I often am harsh on my own work. I'm more critical than anyone else it seems and don't feel mine is as great as I'm told. You can find some in my deviant which is linked in my signature.

    Either way she's pretty good. I know I couldn't paint like that. Then again I don't really like painting either. I'm more of a digital/ink sketching person.

    was anybody expecting something different ??

    only joking.

    seriously though that's pretty impressive I wish I could paint/draw half as good as that. (i would rep you but that would be taking credit for other people work hehehe)

    Yeah she get's all down on her work but I think she's pretty good. She's working on this art scholarship which I'm sure she'll win. When she's done with those images I'll post them if anyone wants to see.

    I was thinking "Oh boy, what's this gonna be?"
    Then I immediately thought of a talent my wife has and my brain was in the gutter....

    J/K....maybe

    I love the look of those paintings. They really look like they are coming off the page. Is she going to be selling any of them?

    I don't know she might. She goes "I wouldn't want to paint for people because it would take the joy out of it" but I'm sure I can convince her to sell them if someone was interested in buying them.

    Wow, those are amazing!!!

    She is quite good. If she doesn't self-believe that her art is good, then show her this topic

    That's pretty solid work. Is there a local gallery that takes submissions from area artists?

    [edit]

    I didn't even notice you're in NY, yeah, there's 100's

    I was half expecting something completely random or possibly dirty as a joke.

    She definitely has talent. Painting anything with that kind of detail and intricacy is very difficult. I'm useless with a paintbrush in my hands compared to a pencil.

    I think it's only natural for people to be their own worst critic when it comes to artistic things. It's good in a way because it makes you always want to become better rather than be satisfied with your current abilities. As long as it isn't severe to the point where you can't finish anything because you feel it's ruined.

    Common sense isn't all that common.

    You've listed yourself as a male on deviant art because you don't want too much attention or because you wanna be taken seriously? (That last part was purely for comical reasons)
