I chose this painting by James Christensen. It is called "The Responsible Woman". This painting presents a women who is prepared for anything at anytime. I like how there is so much detail and yet is still relaxing and not too crazy. This is done by the calming colors and lack of movement in the area surrounding the figure. If other pieces are looked at there is a constant similarity between figures and objects placed in Christensen's paintings. He often adds brightly colored fish and his paintings all consist of bright colors and intense details. His paintings are realistic and yet the theme is completely fantasy.
