Cohen sat eagerly at the dining room table as I assembled paint, brushes and paper. I'd suggested he paint while I did the dishes. Hoping to keep him momentarily occupied. He was so pleased with the activity. Mixing, stirring, brushing the paint on the paper. I stepped between the two tasks as he called me periodically to examine a colour, a swirl, a drop of paint. He was so engaged with his task that he took little notice as I drew a chair to the table, leaving the dishes. Sitting opposite him instead, I captured images of my little boy at the big table, both of us present in the moment.
