I donated old paintings of mine to a teen who needed canvas under the idea that she could paint over them. She is now...
...passing them off as her own creations. The majority of them aren’t even that great or finished. She is the daughter of an ex-boyfriend. She lies about almost everything. She lied about her brother raping her, even. And I was recently told by a few people in our hometown that she has said that her adopted dad (my ex-boyfriend) touched her inappropriately. She’s disgusting. Her father and I are no longer together and I do not desire to ever speak to them again. Can I have an attorney sue and/or write a letter to help her understand the seriousness? I gave her canvas to repaint with gesso and she is claiming to have painted things that I painted. She’s a liar. And gross. She painted over my signatures on several of them, gifted them to her immediate family, church members, and even teachers. I see them all over social media. I still have the photos I took of each as I progressed through each painting. So, can I take legal action against her? I feel very bitter. I’m pregnant and bitter and annoyed to see a painting that I made back in 8th grade on someone’s social media account boasting that it came from someone who is not the original artist.
