Collector Spotlight: A son's black Christ gift for his dad for Christmas

By Ernest Disney-Britton
"Black Jesus Christ Knocking At the Door" by Diane Viera. Art Poster Print - 16" X 20"
"Black Jesus Christ Knocking At the Door" by Diane Viera was a Christmas gift from my son Kai this year. That brings my Jesus series to fifteen, including a baby Jesus by Niccolo Cosme and this 16" X 20" art poster print by Viera. Now is probably a good time to explain my taste in religious art, which does not run to old masters. I lean toward the likes of outsider artists like Tom Torluemke and Tony Melendez. The subject speaks to me, and I'd like to know more about Diane Viera. Does anyone know anything more about this artist?
