THE STORY

Look past the current climate change narrative of hopeless fear, and doom, into another magnificent realm.

“The wonder of it all in the logic of God”​ is inexhaustible, a feast statement regarding all He gives us to play with, and enjoy. For instance, you may look at anything in the universe including all that is on earth, and still find something new to be in awe of. Knowledge is inexhaustible.

I have no idea how many protein molecules are in dinosaurs’ bones, a road runners’ left eye, or an eagle feather! Do you know? There is so, so much to learn and everyone I know has all spiritual eternity to discover knowledge without end. 

Read this word from the most important book ever written on earth. “Everything was created through him; nothing—not one thing!— came into being without him. What came into existence was Life, and the Life was Light to live by. The Life-Light blazed out of the darkness; the darkness couldn’t put it out”. John 1:3-5 The Message Bible

I have experienced this LifeLight and inside this painting, are numerous personified muses coming as the result of my questioning life and its meaning. This humble painting cannot do justice to what I have seen, heard, and discovered.

These are 4 muses echoing my search. Before the beginning began“, “Where are you God to speak to without treason“, “All kissed by a lover’s hand“, and “Billy tea and God“.

The dove – and The Animal Kingdom
The painted Dove is my best attempt to depict a supernatural/spiritual element of the Holy Spirit’s visibility in the physical world. He also represents a universal symbol of peace brooding over what He made. It is to be fearlessly enjoyed.

Symbolically, He watches over all He was an equal and responsible partner in making. He enjoys the pleasure of what they created from the world beyond, a spiritual realm outside the universe.

The Holy Spirit of peace shares His pleasure with whoever wants to understand. That is my deep conviction in “The wonder of it all – The logic of Gods”​ metaphor. God created it all from nothing where He could have initiated the process with a controlled big bang! Who knows? I don’t, because I was not there when it started but He has opened the eyes of my spirit to experience this mystery.

Stop, look, and listen

The animal kingdom tells us something.

There is a mystery pointing to someone greater than ourselves. Every species is unique in its purpose and function. Their biological similarities and differences, colors, and modes of transport, reproduction, diet, and limitations all point to many amazing marvels on the planet.

Think of how we have emulated flight, armature, robotics, chemical cures, communication skills through observing the animal kingdom.

Our privilege

How truly privileged are we to be alive in this generation?

Every generation has gazed upon the wonders of the universe and awed at its majesty with answered and unanswered questions.

This generation now has the advantage of utilizing modern technology in our quest for answers. Technology and science have built a bridge between the wonders and realities of the universe and we constantly make new and exciting discoveries. Modern innovation has allowed us to take monumental steps which would have been impossible fifty years ago.

The Manufacturer and some questions

For a long time, I had no peace or deep conviction that what I believed was right. I had nothing to measure my thoughts with. If a manufacturer (God) existed, “Why the heck didn’t he talk to me?​”  If he existed why does division and hatred breed in this world? Why could he not stop death and extinction in the animal kingdom? Where did all this magnificence come from that many of us have so wilfully and ignorantly abused?

Every species is unique in its purpose and function. Their biological similarities and differences, colors, and modes of transport, reproduction and sex life, diet, and limitations all point to amazing marvels on this planet.

Whether you like it or not, together, we all spin on our earth axis around the sun in a vast universe. Personally, I like it and I think God likes that I like what He made. The animal kingdom spinning with us through the age, beyond comprehension, is another cause for marvel.

Who is the manufacturer? Did He influence, did He make the universe, or did He step back and let it guide itself? Was He Supernatural, Spiritual, Personal, and Eternal? Did he make all this wonder or are we products of science and a big bang without personality?

Seeking answers to these questions led to many God moments, and out-of-body experiences (without drugs) pointing to the metaphor and vision for ​“The wonder of it all”​.

Good wins over evil

Today’s painting testifies to the revelation that goodwill inevitably triumphs over evil. I am not afraid of the foundations of the earth failing us, or of Climate change, running out of resources, natural disasters, or wars. He has shown me the good, bad, and ugly cycle has its completion in Him. The wonder of it all”​ is a small reflection of the beauty and majesty that will be restored when He returns and that installment will be greater than now. All of creation is looking forward to that day.

To add a little insight into save the planet metaphor 


The chrome hex nuts on the installation frame came from discarded vehicle parts in a wreckers yard.

The nuts had travelled many kilometres on a transport vehicle only to be rejected as rubbish and left to rust, buried under foot in the soil of the auto wreckers dirty dismantling yard. That is until the silver sparkle caught my attention as if it was saying, “Take us to your studio and redeem our lives on your new paintings installation frame”. For the price of a dollar each, I paid the redemption fee and here you may enjoy  a new life story.

A little imagination to make something new from what would be deemed pollution.

The metaphors in the story, “Nothing has to be wasted, waste not want not”.

My free fall skydive experience in West Australia had a major influence on the painting

A note for the skeptics

To address a critics conversation a good friend overheard when “The Wonder” was first in public exhibition.

The painting is not photocopied, inkjet printed on canvas, and painted over.

over many labour intensive hours I brushed and finger-painted professional oils onto this gesso primed fine linen archival canvas. You will see its progression in the gallery’s images.
