As if wings have grown. When Natasha already lived in the house - a boarding school for invalids, she has learnt that the elderly artist - the invalid here works. The girl has taken courage and has approached to it:
- you the artist? I too like to draw.

- this person has made of me the artist, - Natalia speaks. - it has given me theoretical knowledge, technics.
