I Have Seen My Lord

I just finished my latest painting, "I Have Seen My Lord". Oil on canvas, 36x48 inches.

In the early morning, Mary sits outside the garden tomb collecting her thoughts. The Savior has just left her after tenderly telling her of his resurrection. She is about to run and tell the world.

Thanks to Lori Hagey and Regina Davis.

See the painting on my website.

That’s Not MY Jesus

Gethsemane by James C. Christensen
Gethsemane by James C. Christensen

He smiled, shook his head for a moment, turned to me and said,”How do you think BYU's basketball team is going to do this year?"
