WOOLLEN JUMPERS – and a rainbow.
New Zealand sheep photo art
A gift was foreseen
From another back
A warmer winter
Snug as a bug in a rug
While traveling to Tapora on The Kaipara Harbour, one of my favorite windsurfing spots in the North Island of New Zealand, I was enthused by a mid-winter scene that presented itself to me as I ventured down a hill on a typical New Zealand gravel road. I had to capture the light and the sheep in the moment. After some artistic editing of the original work, including running a Photoshop painting filter over the image I present this image to you.
Please note the unfashionable, unlabeled coats the sheep are wearing as their winter fashion statement. They did not complain once about not having enough money to buy the latest fashion garments! I am sure they were happy with each others company, with their allocation of food from their shepherd. This observation has taught me to be grateful for my lot.
This typical New Zealand story should go on display in the interiors of homes from Auckland to Paris, London, Toronto, Moscow or Beijing. Wherever warm jumpers are a desire in winter. Not only a beautiful work of art but the proverb written with its intention is a heartfelt inspiration to meditate upon. As well as a guideline to understand how the wooden jumper on your back became an item you desired to wear, God has given you a wonderful world to live and play in.
Within the vision of this work is a spiritual journey with religious intention. Look at what God has given you to enjoy. Be thankful you have sheep that keep you warm in winter.
