James retired in 1997 after serving forty nine years as a pastor and missionary. He used his abilities as an artist effectively as a chalk art illustrator. He still averages a program a week in churches and groups. Using lecturer’s chalk on a four by five foot canvas, Buie completes an illustration in twenty five minutes. He utilizes a system that includes colored bulbs and black lights controlled by rheostats. A recorded musical background accompanies each presentation. Click on images for larger picture.
