Some people have artistic talent, but not enough confidence in their work to realize it. So, they would never ever consider sharing their work for the world to see. But one proud son decided to do his mom a solid. When Reddit user Gaddafo’s mom took on painting, she didn’t really think highly of her artwork. But boy was she wrong. It turns out that she had more skill than she gave herself credit for. But of course, a son will always say that anything their mom paints is wonderful. So, he decided to let Reddit users decide for themselves, and the feedback was rather unusual.
It began with a rather touching post by a Reddit user trying to show everyone his mom’s painting.
It was his mom’s second painting and Reddit user Gaddafo wanted to let everyone know that this was a masterpiece. But his mom assumed that no one would really like it. But she was way off, and Redditors demonstrated it with their own unique talents.

As it turns out, people didn’t just like it. They loved it, and then decided to prove it in an odd way.
It began with one random artist with the username k__z on Reddit, who decided to make a painting of user Guddafo’s mom holding her painting of a swan. Then he took a photo of himself and posted it on Reddit as a response to the original thread.

Ironically, the painting didn’t stop there as another artist decided to draw a painting of her own, too.
This time, Reddit user lillyofthenight drew a painting of user k__z holding the painting that Reddit user Gaddafo’s mother made of the swan. I know. Totally confusing, but oh-so-trippy. Essentially, it was a painting within a painting, within a painting.

Things didn’t exactly end there either as Reddit user seamuswray painted the third artist, as well.
Lillyofthenight and user k__z must have quickly learned that the universe was handing out karma in the form of paintings. This was turning into something similar to the Modern Family sitcom’s opening credits.

Then, another artist decided to paint lillyofthenight the way seamuswray did and it was amazing.
Clearly, Reddit user DidiBug was on the same wavelength as user seamuswray because she did her own interpretation of the woman who painted the guy who painted the lady who painted the swan. Who knew there was so much raw talent in the Reddit-verse?
