"Waiting for the Tide" by James C. Christensen
Waiting for the Tide
by James C. Christensen

We will all, at one time or another, find ourselves Waiting for the Tide. When every preparation has been made and every detail attended to, we can stand on the shore and demand that the tide rise, NOW! - all we want. Or, we can recognize that the ocean will come of its own accord - as it always does - and sit back, relax and smell the seaweed.

“This little admiral is enjoying his quiet time” explains James Christensen. “He could push the rowboat out to the water, but he’s in no hurry. He’s not lazy; just patient and he knows that eventually the tide will rise. It's a nice day. He's got a "cuppatea" with a little shot of fortitude and he's enjoying the time. He's not going to let the fact that the tide's not in ruin his day. He went out to go boating, so he's boating. He doesn't need water to enjoy a day at the beach. It's the idea of "making the best of the circumstances."

The design and shape of this piece of art is as special and unique as its message, making this 37” x 9” Fine Art Giclee Canvas the ideal Anniversary Edition for any James Christensen Fan. Have you looked into Try It! Home Viewing? This may be just the piece to give it a go on.

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.
