An individual took painting classes at their local community college.
While learning a lot of beneficial information, they however thought that the instructor was giving them constant negative and unfounded criticism.
After this had been going on for some time, they decided enough was enough.
They came up with a plan.
They decided to paint a scene and attribute it to a well-known local artist and bring it in to get the instructor’s criticism.
The instructor, after having been told the artist, was effusive in their praise of the composition; not failing to not every single detail from the color to the brush strokes.
The student waited until everyone else was gone before telling the instructor the real artist.
