oil painting Description

"With baptism, you unite the new faithful to the People of God. It is never necessary to refuse baptism to someone who asks for it!"

While the abstract painting background is somewhat reminiscent of “Adam and Eve,” light breaks through the grey and different hues of blue are prominent. In a very real sense, the background seems to concede that there was darkness but now light is finally shattering it. Furthermore, should one really look at the picture and focus on its different parts, there appears to be a habitable community. Fan example would be the left side of the oil painting canvas, near its edge. Therefore, we have life and light but most important of all we have the sanctification of love.

In the abstract painting centerpiece there is a primarily blue figure, just above the discernible figures of people. The blue contains other colors such as light blue, yellow, red, purple and silver. It is multicolored but in such a way as to communicate the omnipresent blue’s acceptance of all colors and shapes. All are equally accepted and loved.

Should we shift our gaze to the gold figures below the protective blue we find one rising above the other. The second figure is submitting to the larger one and is looking at a gold, with a streak of blue, object. While this is open to interpretation, the figures are the priest, the homosexual and the pound, or basin, of water he is going to be baptized in. The artist is making a statement here and that statement is that none can deny them their own relationship with God and should they choose to, they should be baptized. In this instance, the protective blue is there for the homosexual, for the person who needs protection from the hatred of others but has the love of God, hence the baptism.
