While Bill Frist was the Senate Majority Leader, a lithograph of a Greene painting hung in his office. A Greene painting hangs in the office of the US Senate chaplain Barry Black. The evangelical television show It Is Written uses a Greene portrait of Jesus in its opening credits.[1]

Greene was influenced by great illustrators/painters like Harry Anderson, Hayden Sundbloom (noted for his classic Santa Claus paintings for Coca-Cola), and Tom Lovell.[2]

Greene grew up in Michigan and attended Chicago’s American Academy of Art. In his early years he did painting and illustrations for Christianity Today, Tyndale House, Focus on the Family, National Wildlife Federation, and NASA.[3]

The painting “Family of God” hangs prominently at the Loma Linda University Medical Center and the painting “Chief of the Medical Staff” [4] hangs in the Florida Hospital Celebration Health.[5]

In 1999, the Pacific Union College's Rasmussen Art Gallery held a Nathan Greene exhibition titled “Portraits of Jesus”.[6]

In 2009, Greene was commissioned to create the “I Was Hungry” painting for the Versacare Corporation. [7]
