In silence we must wrap much of our life,
because it is too fine for speech.

This is one of several paintings I just did of my daughter and I when she was an infant.  Because she was jaundiced and born early she had therapy from a biliblanket.  The glow of it was ethereal somehow and I remember feeling scared for her health.  A quiet silence filled the space as we held our breath and she started growing.
