This jaunty derby
was an essential part
of this young man’s
daily wear for school
for a time.
We artistic types recognize
what courage it takes
and what it costs
to be so different
in this world.
This tiny picture fragment
from long ago
becomes a testament
to childhood’s enduring,
To witness the moment in photographs.
To record the beautiful grace of infancy.
To remember the elders, travelling to see their new young one.
To document time, place, and reality for the future.
To make good energy visible for the home.
To celebrate the two, becoming three.
To honor the spirit of family.
This is why.

Love what you’ve done!
These words usually accompany a new hairdo or living room design.
But this was the response from a father, freshly grieving the loss of his only son,
viewing what I created from the candid image he sent me.
These natural words really meant a lot to me on an emotional level,
knowing what this picture meant to him.
I love what I do
in creating something personal and special for those who are bereaved:
remembering and honoring their loved ones in contemplative art.
If this idea ‘sparks’ a feeling for the need
to see a treasured photo transformed into a memorial portrait,
I would love to help make it a reality.
May your loved one’s memory be a blessing.
Today’s On The Easel is an infant’s portrait in natural light.
Very small infants are absolutely lovely while they observe their world around them –
I love how they embody their innocence, essential energy, and innate purity.
