  1. I’ve just followed the link and I’m amazed at how many wonderful things James Christensen painted. His paintings are incredibly complex – and so colourful. I could spend ages scrutinizing all the intricate details. Christensen had enormous skill and certainly knew how to draw us into the world of each one. I’m sure he’ll be very missed.

    1. When I was very young I wanted to be a children book illustrator 🙂 I loved details 🙂 My parents sent me to music school, they thought it was more beneficial.

  2. I have never heard of this man before so I followed your link and now I am sorry I never knew about him because what he wrote about and painted is right up my street, anything to do with myth, fables and fantasy I love. I take my hat off to anyone who can create subjects from imagination as good as he did. So sad. RIP 😦

  3. What talent Mr. Christensen possessed! He also drew some fine monsters. I hadn’t heard of him before, so thank you, Lady Inese, for your post. Perhaps he was able to now meet the angel with one wing, which he seemed to illustrate a few times. xoxo

    1. Thank you so much for stopping by, dear Friend. There is a quote I love to share. All works of James C Christensen have a story behind them, and a source of inspiration 🙂
      “We are, each of us, angels with only one wing.
      And we can only fly embracing each other.”
      — Luciano De Crescenzo

      1. What a gorgeous quote! I’ll need to do more research on Mr. Christensen. I like the idea of the stories behind his paintings. Thank you very much! I shall read up on Luciano Crescenzo. Peace and love. xoxoxoxo

      2. It’s such in incredibly sad loss, the beauty of his imagination is just stunning. I love how you can get lost in these paintings and the stories they share… Love the Dr Crescenzo quote! I’ve read a lot of his books during my studies but somehow missed this one. xxxxxx

        1. Isn’t it a beautiful quote, and look what a stunning image it has inspired. Truly, all the gifts are inspiring, and they enrich life for all human beings. We just cannot be without each other 🙂 xxxx

  4. I’m really impressed by the lovely fox’s pictures and story… I didn’t know in Irland you have them as pets… the pictures you show in the blog (with the fox) are of deep beauty and I can tell from the eyes of this wild animals that they are happy to be with humans! Thank you for sharing :-)c

    1. Thank you for stopping by! I am not sure that foxes are considered pets in Ireland. I guess, they are not. It is a wild animal, and it can be adopted as a pet only in extraordinary circumstances.
      Have a wonderful week!

  5. I didn’t know the artist, Inese, but I liked the example of his work that accompanied your post. It is sad that he has passed on, but when I followed the link to his entry in Wikipedia, it seemed he’d lived a fulfilling and creative life doing what he loved. I guess that’s as much as any of us can really hope for.

    1. Thank you for stopping by! Yes, he lived a fulfilling and generous life, and left an amazing legacy of beautiful, sad and wise creatures I love so much. He was creating and giving away many of his works. Just a generous soul, may he enjoy the beautiful world on the other side of the veil.

  6. This saddens me when we lose a true artist and special, thoughtful person from our world. “Gone too soon . . .”
    I loved the painting and quotation you shared of James Christensen. He may have been called to join the angels and we may see his creative forces in the heavens. xo

    1. I didn’t know him personally, I only know his niece, but I love his art and all the characters. May he rest in peace in a beautiful world out there.

    1. Thank you so much, Jean. I didn’t know him personally, but his niece is a good friend, who actually advised me to take up portrait photography 🙂 His paintings are so in tune with my inner world, as if it is where I came from, and where I will return to 🙂 He knew where is that portal 🙂

  8. Thank you for sharing the lost this great artist. I like his work immediately – this kind of paintings or drawings. They have so many details that draw you to explore and imagine about each part of the paint.

    1. Thank you so much, Teagan. I look at his works enjoying every detail and forgetting about the time. A huge loss, especially for his family. They are all very talented. Many Hugs.
