The Spiritual Themes in the Art of James C. Christensen


The Fruits of Adversity

"The Everyman is enjoying the white fruit of the tree of life, but the tree is coming from his hump--from his trials and adversity," Christensen explained. "He's walking on the strait and narrow path, which happens to be on top of a wall in this painting, but it's through the adversity he has endured that he is able to enjoy the fruit."
