I have always preferred to paint angels as
beautiful winged women. I strongly feel that the feminine side of human nature communicates
angelic qualities peace, encouragement, support and unconditional love in many ways, that which we
get from our mothers, explains James Christensen. And then there are faeries. These social yet
mischievous creatures commonly make fleeting and momentary promises. Some have the attention span
of a newt, and I have it on good authority, that neatness may not be their forte either. Given
all that, it's not so hard to imagine a social structure upon which relationships between them
could be based.
Every now and then Christensen breaks out of his tight and detailed style and shows that he also
knows his way around the sensuous qualities of paint. "Angel with Two Faeries" is part of the same
series James created that included "Angel" (his most recent sold out fine art edition release).
"Faith, Hope and Charity" and "Three Clowns" were also painted around the same time.
