"Babies are in constant motion while awake it seems, but I wanted to at least try to draw this new life in all his alert wakefulness. An impossible task I supposed, but as I watched him, I began to notice recurring patterns of movement and the same shapes in his posture as he wriggled, the same unwitting gestures with his hands.

Every morning for 5 to 10 minutes, while he was relatively relaxed in his chair, I would get a few lines down. To my surprise after about two weeks this drawing emerged.

The chair seems to frame him a bit like a mandorla in early Christian icons. The mandorla was used to depict sacred moments that transcend time and space."
