Six Bird Hunters in Full Camouflage
by James C. Christensen

“For these hunters, the ritual is far more important that the prize,” explains Christensen. “Bonking the bird is not in the thing; the technique of the hunt is. Each of these bird hunters is a “master” of technique, whether he’s disguised as another bird, a pear tree, a rock, a fungus-covered log or a butterfly. Whoever has the best costume, more than who gets the bird, wins.”

“That accounts for only five bird hunters, though. What about the sixth? Is it the fish? “No,” says Christensen, stone-faced. “That’s a decoy. Still can’t find the sixth bird hunter. That’s because he’s very, very good,” says Christensen.

As this Fine Art Anniversary Edition Canvas shows, you can never have enough of the right gear. Certainly there are more efficient ways to go about such an endeavor, but where is the fun in that? Get your edition of Six Bird Hunters in Full Camouflage and join a hunt where imagination and invention are the most important things of all.

About James C. Christensen

Inspired by the world's myths, fables and tales of imagination, James C. Christensen wants his work to add up to more than a beautiful - if sometimes "curious" looking work of art. Having taught art professionally for over 20 years, he likes to think of the world as his classroom. His hope is that through whatever he creates-be it a porcelain, fine art print or book-he can convey a message, inspiration or a simple laugh. He believes that teaching people to use their imagination helps us find solutions to sooth the stresses of everyday life-or get a little lift to help us keep going. In short: all things are possible when you share Christensen's philosophy that "Believing is Seeing."

Christensen was born in 1942 and raised in Culver City, California. He studied painting at Brigham Young University and, for a while, the University of California at Los Angeles before finishing his formal education at BYU. Since then, he has had one-man shows in the West and the Northeast and his work is prized in collections throughout the U.S. and Europe.

Christensen has also won all the professional art honors the World Science Fiction and Fantasy Convention can bestow, as well as multiple Chesley Awards from the Association of Science Fiction and Fantasy Artists. Christensen has been designated as a “Utah Art Treasure,” one of Utah’s Top 100 Artists by the Springville Museum of Art and received the Governor’s Award for Art awarded by the Utah Arts Council recognizing the significance of Christensen’s artwork to Utah’s cultural communities. He was inducted into the U.S. Art magazine’s Hall of Fame and is an Honored Alumnus at Brigham Young University for his contributions to fine art and education. James and his wife Carole, co-chair the Mormon Arts Foundation. He is a frequent guest lecturer at Brigham Young University, and has also given workshops to large companies and organizations on the subject of creative thinking, including the California Art Educator’s Association, Hallmark and Intermountain Health Care. 

In addition to his fine art limited editions on paper and canvas, Christensen’s work can be found in five acclaimed books and a series of interactive journals and in three dimensions in porcelain and hand-crafted limited-edition bronze sculptures.
