by James C. Christensen“I came up with the idea for this painting while working on the book, Lehi’s Dream. 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. He’s walking on the straight 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 at last able to enjoy the fruit.
“This painting is a continuation as well as a return to the themes addressed in Sometimes the Spirit Touches Us through Our Weaknesses and After Clouds, Sun. I think because I was immersed in the story and symbols of Lehi’s dream, this image popped into my head as another way to express the idea that our trials are given to us to help us grow and become more perfect.“
Miniature art is an important part of any collection and a SmallWork™ is a simple way to either start or add to your collection. Such works are often a collector’s first purchase for the obvious reason, they are less expensive. As single works of art, they can be that final elegant touch in fine décor. At the other end of the spectrum, a wall of miniatures makes for an impressive display of a collector’s unique range of style and interest.
Each SmallWork is created with the same precision as all Greenwich Workshop Fine Art Editions, signed by the artist and numbered as a collectible limited edition.
