Six Over Blue by JustinChristenbery
Six Over Blue
20 x 38", acrylic on canvas. Painted live, 7/28/2015, at OTPH in downtown Cornelius, NC. Auctioned
Sunlit Passing by JustinChristenbery
Sunlit Passing
36" x 36" acrylic on wood panel. Painted in 3 hours on Friday, June 12th. The image is from a photo I caught the night before in the middle of an argument between my pregnant wife and myself whilst on our way to Babies R Us. Point: Don't let the heaviness of reality blind you to the exquisite beauty of its existence.
Great Blue by JustinChristenbery
Great Blue
45" x 45" acrylic on canvas.
Painted in 4 hours on 4/18/'15 for a silent auction benefiting Lake Norman Wildlife Conservationists.
Jason in Life by JustinChristenbery
Jason in Life
24" x 48" acrylic on canvas

A pro bono painting for a grieving mother and something of a new standard for my portrait work. Not as bland as the ultra-realistic drawings, I think. Feels like an accomplishment as much as a well-captured photo and despite less microscopic detail I'm pretty sure it's an improvement.

Life is an experiment and a dream- open and submit to Its process. All potentials are born within your imagination.

Above: Live painting performance piece. Sketched/painted a room-full of rowdy locals and their entertainers.

Current Residence: Charlotte, NC US
I think art's promise is a released and empowered soul. It's less about the art made than the energetic act of creation itself. Somehow, the process unlocks something within those who hear the call to create & respond. We can always be more than we are, and it is the creative act that reveals the truth of this to the conscious mind.

     Changes, changes....
        The call to create resounds... is a time of accepting, choosing, and engaging Life's process on every level.

     Personally, I'm looking to deeply apply everything I've learned. About painting, love, short about Life & being human. I think  big surprises are just around the corner for us as a species. We are capable of so much more than we have dared let on, but there are those who are tired of holding back. More than that, they are realizing that the time for holding back- & there was a long, long time for that- is passed.
