He remembers once he was painting the portrait of a little boy who was dying of a liver ailment, and he saw doves coming out of the canvas and through Charles, then flying into a bright hole in the middle of the canvas - reminiscent of a 'sparle' - and Charles cried and cried, he remembers; then, dry-eyed, he painted [the child's] portrait..."
