Wish upon a falling star, beware of the black cat and 69 other superstitions!  "Life is a precarious business. Small wonder, then that our ancient forebears were keen to stack the cosmic deck. If you've ever heard that secret voice inside who says: pick up that lucky penny . . . what could it hurt?, then you share something with me and most of the human family," says Christensen.

(A booklet with each print explains all 72 superstitions.)

This print retired April 15, 1998.

 

James ChristensenJames C. Christensen is the internationally lauded creator of "the land a little left of reality." Inspired by the world's myths, fables, and fairy tales, Christensen has become one of the world's foremost fantasy artists, specializing in the art of imagination. He's had one-man shows in the West and the Northeast, and his work is prized in collections throughout the U.S. and Europe. He has been commissioned by both Time/Life Books and Omni to create illustrations for their publications, and his work has appeared in the prestigious American Illustration Annual and Japan's Outstanding American Illustrators.
 
"Credible pictures of incredible things" is the way James C. Christensen describes his paintings. Born in Southern California, he received his BFA from the University of California at Los Angeles and MFA from Brigham Young University in Utah.

The Greenwich Workshop recently commented on the Master of the Imagination:
"It is with deep regret and profound sadness that we announce the passing of artist James C. Christensen on Sunday, January 8, 2017."
