This page concludes Ch. 5. I hope to be posting Ch. 6 soooooon.
I wonder if old Madam will call her grasshopper?
Hm, I'm going to have to think about what Madame Ving will call her rather challenging student.
I like Ving's face. She looks strong and positive and kind.
I'm glad to hear this comes through in her expression--I worked a loooong time on M. V's portrait to get it right.
She reminds of my second foster mother, Addy. Old at 65 (to me at 15), detached, deeply understanding and supportive while clear about rules.
She should know not to judge someone on appearence alone.
Ha ha, Plymayer. Marita has a few things to learn. As we shall see in Ch. 6.:) Thanks for hanging in there!
Yes! Hmmm! Thanks for your comments, they are valued.
I just found this place. I really liked it! I hope you will finish it!
Thanks, Oscar! Glad you enjoyed SNW. Working on Ch. Six right now and I intend to finish it within the next six months. That's my goal anyway. :D
