Inspired by a recent mural project, James Christensen set out on an awfully big adventure. Wanting to do something grand and romantic while exploring the texture, surface and richness of paint, James chose for his subject three of Paul's greatest virtues - in the form of three women. ||This piece is a little bit of a departure,|| Jim says. ||But these gifts of the spirit are important qualities for us to remind each other about.|| The words in gold leaf identify the three as their names appear in the original Greek Biblical text.
||And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.|| - I Corinthians 13:13
