artist's comments:

"The reason it is'nt called 'The Burden of the Responsible oman' is that she's so busy she doesn't have time to be burdened! When I asked my wife, Carol, about her burdens, she gave me a funny look and said, 'I don't have time to be burdened.' When you've got so many things going, you might not have time to ponder."

Instead, you can enjoy imagining the meaning behind every part of Christensen's image. Even a cursory glance will reveal evidence of health, happiness, career, and family, as well as the more mundane implements of cooking and cleaning.

"Specifically, what you have here is 'woman as a spiritual leader,'" says Christensen. "She has a candle, which is my way of showing that she is carrying the torch, leading the way. You notice that she has spare candles. Candles are symbols of light and wisdom. She also has a many-handed clock, which could mean several things, and then there is a compass, I put that in at the last minute, because today's woman really has to try to find her direction. The compass is there to help her figure out which way she's trying to go."

It's all part of the artist's homage to the amazing modern woman. Give the gift of gratitude and honor your favorite responsible woman.

‘It is rare to get a framer who can lay his hands on the best quality acid free boards, a range of the best picture glass, and such a large selection of mouldings. I have found it a pleasure to work with the Quality Framing Company.’
