Genesis 1:20-23 “Then God said, “Let the waters teem with swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth in the open expanse of the heavens.” God created the great sea monsters and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarmed after their kind, and every winged bird after its kind; and God saw that it was good. God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.” There was evening and there was morning, a fifth day.”

This colorway is one of my “Days of Creation” series.

Day 5- Part 2

Are you sick of Frank Harber yet? LOL Well this book is awesome! Another quote regarding the evolution vs. creation. On page 19, Harber provides some great information. “Evolution requires that spontaneous generation (life coming from unliving matter) must have occurred. But not one case of spontaneous generation has occurred. All scientific observations point to the fact that life only comes from life. This scientific law is referred to as the the Law of Biogenesis. Hence, to get life you need life.” But to me this makes sense. God told the birds and the fish to be fruitful and multiply. He created them just as they were and expected them to reproduce their own kind. What a great God.

Regarding this colorway, I took some artistic liberties. No where in the Bible is there a mention of flamingos, per se. However on day 5, God created ALL the birds, including Flamingos. This colorway was actually inspired by a wetbag I own that with an Amy Butler print. It looks to me like flamingos standing in water and I am so glad that it turned out the way I hoped it would. While I am creative and enjoy this process, I pale in comparison to the ultimate artist- God! He created everything we see. He is awesome!

For your viewing pleasure, the print that inspired this “Flamingos.”
