Re: Baptism

There is no way for my mind to discern EXACTLY what she is doing...
I like being mystified
I like the colors, composition and playfulness

and I am wise enuf to know when not to guess.

Really loving this!

Re: Baptism

Very beautiful lighting and a lot of serenity. Is she testing the waters?
She reminds of a sylph, who would surely do so.

Re: Baptism

This strikes me as “Blind Faith” both in the image and the title, as her eyes seem unable to see and the cane she is using. Just my take on it. I do like your work.

Re: Baptism

thanks guys

often my 'message' is obscure - she's baptizing a cross

art, of course, is certainly open to any interps a viewer sees, as it should be, always.

Re: Baptism

I see it now. The cross is so delicate that the crossbar looked like a ripple in the water.
Still serene.

Re: Baptism

Nice work. I thought she was maybe walking on water gingerly as if in doubt.

Re: Baptism

i can see that, chrispy, ginger hesitation and doubt.

my mind went with a calm thought of necessity, somewhat carefully, gingerly, in case things exploded. i don't suppose anyones ever baptized a cross before, who knows what might happen

thanks truffle, kay, bi
