THE POEM Media painting Omaha Beach
Omaha beach is one of my favorite New Zealand beaches.
Sightseeing, I have traveled, surfed, windsurfed, camped, climbed, and photographed much of the New Zealand’s, North Island East Coastline, and Omaha Beach, appendaged to Tawharnui Peninsular, measures up favorably to any other place I have set my eyes on. Mixed Media painting Omaha Beach
Nestled on the Matakana Coast, its popularity presents modern Kiwiana lifestyles, Pohutukawa trees, bush walks, unique wildlife, Maori, and Pakeha history, rich rural farmlands, thick bush canopies, Vineyards, Olive groves, and heaps of restaurants, cafes and boutique shopping in Matakana and Warkworth villages.
At the north end of the beach, the protected bird sanctuary appeals to anybody who enjoys New Zealand’s wildlife. At the shore’s edge is an abundance of discarded shells, once the domain of multiple sea creatures, long gone, now dead, yet in death, a new beauty has displayed itself in a kaleidoscope of colors.
This hunter gathered multiple shells from the graveyard and a happy foursome made a new life on this artwork.
Note, I started life on the dry flat sandplains of West Australia with a fantastic coastline of white beaches nestled between rocky cliffs that embedded in me a love for the oceans white sandy vistas and open spaces. Those embedded pleasures makes the Omaha and Matakana beaches a no-brainer for my enjoyment.
The playful imagination
If you think about it, we all play at something to stimulate our imagination. The only boundaries to the rule are what we imagine and how we plan our life.
“Omaha Beach Pleasures” portrays my small attempt to convey simple attractions from many of my artistic and photographic endeavors.
The cross pollination from many of my learned art skills using old and new materials is evident in this work .
The philosopher’s thoughts
What about the philosopher’s desire to seek life’s beginning, meaning, the end, and all that’s in between.
I stand on the beach and look to the horizon, I guide a drone up above the surf and take a photo, and then stop to meditate on the wonders I’ve just seen.
How did all this just happen?
Who can I give thanx for all its glory?
I stop again and consider many of the opinions, religions and philosophies others have tried to convince me to believe in.
And it’s here I settle on the greater than I, all encompassing, out of sight invisible, beyond comprehension, “I am, because I am” God who had an idea and spoke it into being.
I have settled and need no more comprehension to understand the “Peace beyond all understanding” that has settled in my being at accepting his story about himself.
