October 2001 - Faery Tale- James Christensen


“Across the sea of imagination, in the land of “Once Upon a Time,” there exists the island home of "Faery Tales." James Christensen gives us a glimpse into the daily life of twenty-four of the world’s most popular stories. The Emperor is resplendent in his new clothes, Cinderella dances with her Prince, the Three Bears return home to find an unexpected guest and Rapunzel lets her hair down. How many others do you recognize?"

All generations of any family can find common ground in this bright and cheery ode to the ever fascinating, fantasy world of our youth. Teach your children or grandchildren your favorites and learn some new ones at the same time! Included with each print or canvas is a key to all the faery tales in the image. Enjoy!


“I’ve always felt that defining a spiritual experience is very much like trying to define love. Writers and poets have tried to express ‘love’ in words for hundreds of years. Some things we read give us a feeling or a cue about what love is like, but nothing ever really gets it right. Love is beyond words. It is nonverbal and the attempt to explain it in language trivializes the moment to some extent.

“Every once in a while the Lord will give you an ‘aha’ moment when he deems that you need one. For me, he chose trash night. I was carrying the trash can down the driveway and all of a sudden I just lit up. I was consumed with light and warmth. I can remember it today as clearly as the moment it happened. I thought I was on fire. My soul was filled. I just stood there for seconds, holding the trash can, feeling out of space and time. It then just gradually dissipated. 

“No words were spoken out loud, but when I set the trash can down, I thought, ‘I’m going to be called to serve the Church.’ Even though I was anxious and felt overwhelmed and under qualified, I knew that the Lord wanted me there and I knew that with his help, I could fulfill the calling. 

“I painted the fire in this image with gold leaf, so when from across the room, the gold catches the light and reminds me of a twenty-nine-year-old junior high school teacher taking out the trash.”
