OSI : Connoisseur (2)

How he wanted to be a famous painter
But the contemporaries killed the competition
He was asked to judge , made connoisseur...

( If you haven't , do visit the earlier post for this prompt.)


  1. I liked this one too, with its touch of melancholy - who wouldn't rather be the famous painter?

  2. Pyaara Dost,
    Good Morning!
    He was a famous painter;that is why he was asked to be the connoisseur.
    To defend our skills,to keep them growing,it must be accepting challenges and self motivation.I do that when people try to pour water on my spirits.:)
    Hardly one receives inspiration from outside.
    Wishing you a bright and beautiful day ahead,

  3. @gospelwriter Couldn't write comment as don't have logging on world press..

  4. @Anu..Thanks for your comment.. but for fistever time it confused me.. I couldn't perhaps reach you well.. I wrote.. he wanted to be.. and would have.. so how to stop him.. make him a connoisseur.. easyy way to keep someone on a side..

  5. I think this is a lovely piece and fits very nicely with Part 1 of your story. Lovely, thoughtful words you've woven here.

  6. that must be a great honor and privilege, hence he must draw that innate talent of being a connoisseur to see others' works...:)

  7. I think the judging when to his head. This is a light ending for your writing. I like the first much better though.

  8. Asked to stand on the sidelines rather than jump in! How difficult.
