Artwork Description

“The title of this painting comes not from the predicament of the travelers, but from the creation of the piece itself,” says artist James C. Christensen. “Every once in a while, I work on a painting that baffles me so much that I set it up on a shelf. This one got shelved three or four times until I got excited about it again and finished it―twelve years later.”

The boat-as-metaphor for life’s passage is a familiar Christensen motif, as is the fish as faith and spiritual guidance. Christensen collectors will notice additional familiar travelers in this land-locked community of birds, passengers and apparent royalty, all guarded by a petite knight in armor on a pig.
