Portrait (A Painting)

“The true artist is not proud: he, unfortunately, sees that art has no limits; he feels dark how far he is from the goal, and though he may be admired by others, he is sad not to have reached that point to which his better genius only appears as a distant, guiding sun” – Ludwig van Beethoven


It is said that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. The Old Man got the talent and his beautiful wife got the looks. And, the kids are both, talented and beautiful.

Accordingly, the daughter asked the Old Man to give her a pose and he did; she took a picture and from the picture, drew a life-size painting on a 4-foot tall canvas. The result is shown below. This painting was hung in the South Brunswick High School for almost two years. And, the Old Man did become somewhat famous.

Hundreds and probably, thousands of people who have seen the canvas, have loved and admired it with great awe and respect. Guess, it must run in the genes.

Always keep a happy, healthy and a positive atmosphere in the home environment. Above all, a loving social and cultural environment that shapes the life of a person. It is the building blocks of a strong foundation. If the foundation isn’t strong, the structure will collapse. Build it with honesty and integrity. Steer towards happiness that will last a lifetime, not a short time.
