The Spiritual Themes in the Art of James C. Christensen


After the Clouds, Sun

In this painting, the hunchback, or Everyman, is responding to the Spirit, which has touched his hump--or his weakness. The sun is appearing from behind the clouds, and the angel is directing him, not just touching him. Christensen said, "So many times it's through the hard things that we find the greatest spiritual blessings."
