This is the background story about, “the Baptism”–a painting a made after visiting Jamaica and having a spiritual experience at the river. The video clip is available on facebook.com/creativeillusion1 and is not religious.
The water in the river was so wonderful and relaxing. After bathing in the water, I felt so refreshed and stress free. Indeed, I felt brand new–as if burdens has been lifted and floated down stream. I myself was baptized as a baby where they poured water over my forehead, but I can’t remember it. The experience I had at the river is what I imagine could be the feeling you have when you get baptized.
It was truly surreal. Although I am the same woman, I somehow felt a higher power had guided me to the river and cultivated the entire moment.
