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,
sometimes your precious cats or dogs
look their best in a nice outfit!
Framed ‘royal portraits’ of your beloved ‘fur persons’
can be transformed into pillows, photo art, skins
or other ways to keep your loved ones’ good energy visible!

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.
