A simple study of the situation at hand. A child running with her baby brothers play shovel. Families, couples, children of all ages, all enjoying the warm vibe of this exciting moment here at South Beach. The Hague. Feeling fortunate to have been on location, and to have been gifted with the ability to be able to create this everlasting, immortal scene, on a piece of linen.

The richness of a Nation, summed up .....Yes ladies and gentlemen, it's right here before your eyes! Have a close look at what's shown. The oil is extracted out of the Earth, in this case, beneath the Sea bed. (on the horizon to the left of the sailboat). The oil is then loaded on to a tanker, which is anchored, floating on the Sea, most likely waiting for the oil price to increase on the market! Fortunes are made, the Nation prosperous. Here you see an example of that healthy economy. A favorite pass time for many, sailing the vigorous North Sea.
