I see people in galleries who get so mad.
Where’s the talent in that? they ask.
My 7 year old could paint that.
I want to buy them coffee (or a scotch), and point out how lucky they are to have a 7 year old who still can, but I never do, because I know it won’t be long before their 7 year old truly can’t, not after hearing so much NO DON’T! scorn in their parents’ voices.
