Your child has worn a shirt for so long that it is worn out and stained and way too small, and you love it much more than when it was new. You only have to think about that shirt and you can smell that sweet sweat and warm shampoo, and you can feel their small, soft arms around you. It is so hard to put that shirt in a box. Here is a way to cherish it.
Courtney Mandryk, the founder of Root & Star, will paint an original portrait of childhood cloth. It is a portrait for you, to help you remember, and for your child, too, because they will look at it and know that you really see them, and that they are cherished.
["Cloth" can also include portraits of blankets and stuffed animals or other sentimental textiles.]
Original, signed watercolor on paper.
Turnaround time: 3-4 weeks.
Upon payment confirmation, please send three photographs of the cloth to firstname.lastname@example.org.
