I do not paint and haven't picked up a paintbrush in decades... what part of that history would lead someone to believe I can paint?

Happens to me sometimes too. For some reason people always translate 'artist' into 'fantastic painter'.

I love this!

Your relatives hear you're an artist and they automatically think you're a painter. And can use ANY kind of paint!!
I have this same problem with my mother! :XD:

I say artist and people think I draw, and they're right, but I also paint, and write, and cut paper, and make jewelry, and make costumes, and a bunch of other stuff... I just don't like oil paints or oil pastels or academic essays or traditional ways of doing things... I'm weird like that^^

Artists are usually weird! Isn't that why they call this site deviantART? :deviation:

Guess you gotta specify what kind of artist, but even though I do that, people still think I'm a :painter:painter, even though I never touch paint!

I know!! I tell people I do some of my art on the internet and they're automatically like "Which thing do you use?" And I always respond "Paint" they don't comprehend what it means... I mean the thing that comes built in to ALL computers. That paint.
