My 14 yr old nephew and 17 yr old niece are in foster care thanks to my sister... My nephew is coming here to live (I'm in AZ and he is in IN). He has had a very bad life. He knows no body but me wants him.

I was wondering if anyone would be kind enough to send him something with words of encouragement. No religious stuff. Things with a boy theme, I have never been able to make boy themes.. I plan to try to make a few things for his room.

His favorite color is dark blue, which I just painted his room. He likes space ships or stars to put on the walls.. Other than that I don't know what he likes. I wasn't allowed to talk with him for many years since I told my sister she didn't deserve those kids.

The social worker is coming on Oct 4th to check us out to see if I get him for sure or not.. They told me it would take 2-3 months for the process and its already been over a month.

His name is Nathan

Thank you for considering this!

I go hardcore on Asian art; I will be sending this Torii Kiyonaga tribute: http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/8044290035/in/photostream

Thank you! I love Kiyonaga. I've gotten to see a lot in person; they are amazing. It's been so nice to do the ATCs. I'm been doing large canvases for the past few years. ^_^ I used to paint 25mm models when I was a teen to early 20s so I guess I'm doing miniatures all over again. It gives me a chance to draw again, too.

Oh, here is where I stole her from. Forgive me, Kiyonaga-san!

Deco - It's a learned skill. The two are related but not quite the same. It's all hand eye coordination. I tell people, when you were little writing out your name was hard. Same skills. Absolutely same skills. You just train your coordination and the channels in your brain, same as anyone learning to pitch baseball and many other skills. ♥ Also, there are TONS of free videos online on drawing and painting. I have basic information for painting on my blog, go to the last post and read forward. Go to Jerry's Artarama sales online, they have thousands of free videos. Check YouTube for tutorials. Internet connection and you can have the equivalent of a BFA with some time. ^_^
