James Christensen's Art

I thought it would be fun to showcase some of my favorite artists. Ones that I admire, and that whom I gain inspiration from. I will start with my vary favorite of all, James Christensen. I am lucky enough to own a few of his prints, and I absolutely love his work! For those of you who are not familiar with his work, I encourage you to click on the link below that will take you to his publisher where you can see all of the work they have produced over the years. I could not locate a personal website or blog for James, but if any of you are aware of such a site, please share it with me. Below are some pictures of his work that I own.

This next image is one of my favorites that he has done, but it has been sold out for many years, and if you can find a copy available to purchase, it goes for a lot of money. I still love looking at it, and someday hope to purchase a copy of my own. It's called Once upon a Time ......

You've been tagged by a "Nice Matters." You must go to my blog and retrieve the banner and then pass it on to at least 5 more but no more than 7. You are such a sweety, Sylvia.

Sylvia - James Christensen is a local artist from here in Utah and his stuff is SO wonderful! I LOVE it! You're lucky to have some of his prints. I found this video on YouTube that gives the background of one of his new pieces......

Gayle~ It was nice to see you pop in....do you have a blog? The video was great, and thank you for sharing it with everyone! I have never seen him interviewed before, so it was nice to hear what his inspiration was for that painting.
