Seagulls, abundance and The North Sea

Meeuwen, overvloed en de Noordzee
oil on canvas, 30 x 150cm
painted on location - Thurs 21 Feb 2013

No shortage of feeding for these seagulls and a few crows. Brought up by the natural movement of the tide, a variety of shelled sea creatures, become a source of life sustenance to this group of  feathered beings. While painting this scene I had this thought ringing in my head, the Good Lord doth provides, for creatures large and small!  Personally I'd rather say,  Mother Nature provides. But that is only a play with words. The point is I am convinced that there is an overflow of Abundance on this planet, however there may be a misconception with ownership and distribution!
BTW,  for your information, what you see here is the most Northerly point of the Zandmotor,  joining up with the beach at Kijkduin.
