A Word from the Publisher
Greenwich Workshop and Stave Puzzles:
Over Twenty Years of Fine Art Fun

If you enjoy creating order from chaos, then it’s time you met our friends at Stave Puzzles by entering The Great 2006 Fine Art Puzzle Giveaway (

Steve Richardson and his company, Stave Puzzles, build the Rolls Royce of wooden jigsaw puzzles.The Stave experience extends far past the craftsmanship of the personalized, hand-cut to order, fivelayered,
cherry-backed jewel they create; it’s the perplexing experience of putting that devious jewel together that is so addictive. For perspective on this, be aware that Steve’s job title is Chief Tormentor.

Stave Puzzles and Greenwich have been working together for over twenty years. Some of their best-selling puzzles are ones that use the imagery of Greenwich Workshop artists, especially James Christensen’s. With The Responsible Woman as this Catalogue’s Publisher’s Choice, and the holidays around the corner, it seemed like it was high time to introduce our collectors to Stave.

The Responsible Woman

by James C. Christensen

This painting is an homage to artist James Christensen's wife, Carole. He began to contemplate all her roles in life and the many weighty responsibilities she shouldered as a full-time wife and mother of five young children. Women everywhere relate to the need to confidently soar above life's troubles and challenges. In a given day she may shuttle the children, prepare a gourmet feast, keep to hectic time schedules and more, but she always keeps her head up and carries the light of hope to those around her. A delightful gift to honor a wife, mother, grandmother, sister or any heroic woman in your life.

Among the important women's roles portrayed in this painting are:
- Mother
- Pet caretaker
- Chef
- Housekeeper
- Leader (Lighting the way with wisdom)
- Scheduler
