He Feedeth Among the Lilies, 8x8 Oil on Canvas
The artist Robert Genn has many made-up words like that in his blog, The Painter's Keys, today. They are all about art and they are very funny. I was inspired to make up a few of my own:
Liarkinding: Complimenting an artist on a painting you hate because you don't want to hurt their feelings.
Clownvisagia: Going out in public unaware you have paint on your face.
Saddergaller: Depression because you didn't sell well at your show.
And my favorites of Robert's:
Snooler: A person who gushes over your work but who you suspect privately thinks he can do better but actually can't.
Superalphabetted: A person whose name is followed by a lot of letters.
