Sadly, art can be a brutal field. When my brother went to Rhode Island School of Design, the teachers regularly made students cry during critiques and these were students who were EXPECTING brutal critiques.
My dad literally knows nothing about horses.
He always tries to make me sound dumb....a week ago we were hanging up signs for a yard sale, and I gave him thumbtacks so the signs would stay on the telephone poles better, but he took nails and kept saying "Don't pretend you're smarter than me. In the end, the signs got blown off the poles and I hung them up with tacks, and they stayed up *headdesk*
But yes..... the horses don't look so Arabian (I like to change up the pictures....I hate copying exactly what is shown), and I don't think it matters because my dad doesn't know the difference anyway.
I hung the picture up on my wall (I had put it on my bed and closed the door, but my mom showed it to my aunt who left it on the couch....naturally may cat sat on it an CRUMPLED IT)
Well it's on my wall next to my bed now, and my dad started pointing out more stuff......he's like "you just can't do that! You have to learn more" but of course I've been taking lessons for 5 years... UGH.
