    I have trouble rephrasing the original sentence.

    Suppose that you like to draw pictures and play music. Someone makes a comment on your skills.

    The original sentence , "You draw pictures better than you play music.", is good.

    I want to get some practice in rephrasing sentences.

    If I want to use the words, an artist and a musician, in a sentence to comment on your skills, I can rephrase the original sentence as follows.

    (ex) Your being an artist is better than a musician.

    Is my rephrased sentence correct? I have trouble rephrasing my original sentence. Thanks for your help.
