James Christensen's art is truly magical. If you're familiar with his work, you'll understand why I dreamed fish were floating about my home after reading this.

I attended a lecture he gave called "Imagination 101." He made the following points:

1. Life is a journey--use your imagination.
2. Magic is around us everywhere, everyday.
3. We can all find ways to ease our burdens.
4. Art is a mirror of life and the experiences we share.
5. There is no favorite color, only relationships to color.
6. Humor makes all things bearable.
7. Imagination is the reordering of information we already have.
8. Art is communication and responsibility comes with that.
9. Credendo Vides, or Believing is Seeing.
