We were watching HGTV tonight and there was someone who had decorated her house with her original paintings. I told my wife "Honey, you do better work than that." Her response was "But you're seeing this from a common persons eye."

Huh?

Poll
What should be my response to this obviously casual dismissal?
Smile
Unveil my stick figured black and white portraits.
Acknowledge her talent and keep my mouth shut.
Continue to buy Paint By The Number kits to show her up.

It's better to remain silent and let people think you're an idiot than to speak and confirm it.

It's hanging in a place of honor in the game room.

Option #6: Stop watching home shows. Maybe there's some football on.

I don't even understand her response. Was she really dissing you?

She also forgot the apostrophe.

Option 7 -- Paint like Peter Kinkaid, make a bazillion dollars and buy her nice presents while she fumes at the tastes of common people.

Ah, see, that wasn't a diss. She liked what you said, but she's modest so she didn't want to just agree with you.

The next time your wife shows you a painting she just finished, tell her you saw a guy on PBS do one just like it in less than 30 minutes.

(I don't recommend doing this, but it could really tick someone off at an art show.)

FYI: You don't actually see very much of That Kind Of Art at 'art shows'. At least, not anywhere near cities that have actual artists working in them. Mostly because, yeah, it looks like it could be done in 30 minutes by a guy on PBS...

The proper reply is, "Well, that may be, but I still like yours better."

Tell her that art is interpretive, and that your opinion ought to matter to her. You like what you like and that should be enough, particularly since you prefer her art.
