I painted this during my wife's pregnancy with our son, Henry. At the time, she had just cut her hair a little shorter than expected, which unknowingly ended up being a pre-cursor (unbeknownst to us) to her having our son a month early. I painted this a couple nights before she went to the emergency room, where the characters in her hair are ushering in this new orb of light into the world, while one of the characters is holding my heart.
