A Proud Mother

By Akanksha


At times, I love to pamper myself by spending a few moments as I wish. That day too, I was doing the same. Engrossed reading a book minus the thought what my daughter was doing in the other room. 



But abruptly, my solitary moment was broken by the voice of my daughter. She came running to me and said, "Maa look!". She was having a painting in her hand. My eyes could not believe. She had actually tried to paint a painting of an eminent painter Shakti Sinha, her dad brought the other day.







by Shakti Sinha


She came to know from her dad  that the whole painting was done by merely using the fingers. No brush was being used. This, I suppose inspired her and she also did it by her fingers. She told me that Shakti Sinha is indeed a great artist, since he could even paint the eyes of the girl in the painting without using a paint brush. 


I was astonished at her deed as well as her words and realized that my little girl has grown up. She very craftily made me understand that she had used the brush to paint the eyes. 


But I was very pleased and proud seeing her painting like any other mother would have been.

  16. Ranita,
    This is fantastic. Most of the time parents don't realise the talent of their kid. I sincerely hope that you encourage her to paint more. If possible, then please send her to any painting classes so that she can learn the nuances. She is talented. Please allow her to blossom.

  37. I don't have words to describe how beautiful the painting was. Such detailing, I wonder how a little kid might manage painting such an intricate herself. Super cool, please hug your little bundle of joy from my side. I was thrilled when I first saw the post. How old is she btw? Take care, do make her draw her heart out I wish her all the very best in life. May she achieve everything she desires. :)

  49. Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found
    a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and
    said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her
    ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

  54. I believe, Shakti Sinha is a great artist. Having been painted with fingers, the picture looks flawlessly beautiful. I never tried doing it but I know it must be difficult to give the subject expressions.

    Akansha has done a wonderful job. Tell her from me, please, the lady in the portrait has a lot of grace. :)
