The race

When I am spending hours working on a painting I often think about life.  These silver gulls always seem to be chasing after something.  When they get there they often find that there wasn’t much there after all and they start chasing after something else again – the cycle is endless.  It reminded me of the words of a very wise king from long ago.  He was talking about a lot of things in life that are worthless. “Chasing after the wind” he called it.  When you look at this painting you will see that these gulls are coming out of the darkness into the light.  When I noticed this I thought: Wow! If all our pursuits in life take us out of the darkness and into the light it is worth it all!  May we all stop chasing the wind and pursue the light…
