"I painted this during the time that my wife had our first son, Henry. I drew this the week before his delivery and I started/completed the painting that winter. I remember reflecting on my sense of mortality at the time, while also considering all the thoughts that were swirling through my head as I was coping with being a new father and with learning to paint while holding a baby. This painting truly encapsulated my sense of youthfulness paired with my growing need for maturity."
