  2. You are doing awesome Ankita!! Keep up with the work. Am sure it takes got lot of patience. I get attracted to hand-crafted arts, because I belong to the same field :D

  3. Thanks for introduction of this author who I hadn’t known. I checked her photos on the website and your painting really looks like one of them though her clothes is different. Thanks for reading my old post.

  5. Excellent sketch. I loved her book, but I wished she could use more words that common folks (me) can understand easily! :)
