A Painting by my daughter Serena – Sailing through choppy seas

And I thought … that I was better than my daughter!!
She painted this painting virtually in an hour
or two and showed me who was better since I
would take weeks to make a painting – in fact I painted
for only a year or so – and then gave up painting
altogether because it was too hard for me!

    clouddancer143: You both are very good at the style of art that you draw, and to me the race is too close to call on who is better.But between you and I my dear, anytime a child can learn from the parent and go one better should be a great sorce of pride for the parent.Kudo to you both for the beautiful artwork.

    A comment I received through email-Dear dad and daughter,This was a wonderful surprise from Serena (just as the dad had sprung a similar surprise a couple of years ago) I was awestruck by the beauty of the painting. You both are immensely talented and it is hard to say who is better than the other. But ofcourse, Serena is a budding talent and with her whole life before her, I am confident she will make her mark as an artist (and a journalist and an author and a filmmaker and et all) You make us proud Serena!All the best to you,With love,Sujata

    serena, beautiful. your art reminded me of something i wrote, inspired by a painting such as yours:a symphony of blueor is there a whisper of greenall scales of bluesilence-to-crescendothe deep longinggrows white wingsout of the milky foamto scale the skiesthe heart gets a glimmerof the mystery of it allas the steamer reaches the pierof today, tomorrow, and the day after…
