“This is the Church of the Brotherhood of the Paradise Children,” explained Bruce Kramer.  “We would play music and OM together—talk about spiritual things. It wasn't about Jesus. It wasn't about Buddha, but it was about spirituality. We would answer questions for each other, and if anyone had a problem, we'd talk about it. So, it was a place to work out whatever was going on in your head that day.”

“At the end of the service, we'd walk together through the forest, cross the road, and go into this giant wet cave. I mean, it was an awesome cave. We'd climb down into the cave, dive into the water, and then we'd swim underwater and surface in this little lava hollow. We’d be treading water or hanging onto the lava walls and eyes would slowly adjust and then we could see light shining through the water from far below. The cave was pitch black, but the water was a deep turquoise blue. We called it the Blue Room and we would do this every Sunday. The water was cold, so afterwards we’d go to the beach, lie in the warm sand and pick shells. That was a typical Sunday in camp.”

Prints are on Hahnemuhle heavyweight (315 gsm) 100% archival cotton “Photo Rag Baryta” paper, using archival inks and archival spray coating. They have a 200-year life expectancy before any deterioration of the print will be observed when stored, handled, and displayed under archival conditions.

What is often called “Gallery Wrap Canvas” is a fine art inkjet (Giclee) print on canvas, with printed edges to wrap around a wooden stretcher frame, like a painting. With canvas prints, your print image is still the same size, but given a "wrap effect" around the edges to account for the thickness of the stretcher. Canvas can be rolled and shipped with no effect to the print. Your local framing shop should be able to mount the canvas to stretchers at a fraction of the cost of traditional framing, making for an overall more economical way to get fine art on your wall. The canvas is printed to wrap around a 1-inch stretcher (1.5 inches on larger sizes). Specifications will be provided with your order. Feel free to contact us if you need guidance with your canvas order.
