Just under a week before celebrating Christmas, North West updated fans with another day in her life. She gave a glimpse at making a healthy recipe, trying a TikTok trend, and another art painting. Earlier this year, North West’s painting skills were questioned by trolls after mom Kim Kardashian showed them off.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West might’ve made history in the beauty and music industry, but little North is pursuing a different path than her famous parents.
North’s painting skills have been questioned by many Kardashian fans and critics since last year, who seem unconvinced she was behind impressive pieces of art. However, TikTok came through as North shows a glimpse of another piece of art, proving haters wrong.

The SKIMS founder was defensive with a statement after North West’s painting skills were questioned by many fans and critics in February last year.
The 43-year-old was not happy seeing people doubting her “awesome” talents. She went to her Instagram account to express her anger: “Don’t pay with me when it comes to my children.”
She wrote: “My daugther and her best friend have been taking a serious oil painting class where their talents are being encouraged and nurtured.”

“I’m seeing op-ed pieces in the media and social media from grown adults breaking down whether or not my daughter actually painted this!”
Proving North’s talent runs in the family, the reality star showed off different art pieces Kanye had made when he was younger.

“You give them paint and paper and they go to town, they have fun, and of course, the painting is going to come out looking like a 7-year-old did it,” she added.
“But if you sit a child down and walk them through it step-by-step, they could do [a painting like North’s].
