Recently, I was approached by the Arts & Science Council about an opportunity to participate in a special community event of a Charlotte based management consulting firm Accenture. The event was a day long affair to build community in the company. I was invited to do a live painting to be projected during the portion of the program spotlighting ways employees have already invested individually in the local community and offering ways for them to push further.
The event took place in the Mint Museum uptown. In typical grauel style I responded to the words, and actions of the speakers in the form of whimsical village shapes inspired by the activity. The time flew by with laughter and crowd support. At the end of the session I was sad to depart. Over the week following, I revised and honed the image into the painting below. I am grateful to the ASC and Accenture for allowing me to be a part of their community. I look forward to more adventures in live painting. A 15” x 20” acrylic panel of the work will soon be hanging in the main office of Accenture Charlotte. You can add this to your own art collection here.
“We really enjoyed having Jonathan at our meeting and were so appreciative that he was able to capture the event and our discussions in such a creative way. We loved the work that Jonathan did for us and I know we will enjoy it for many years to come.” – Accenture
Special thanks to Virginia Garramone & Shannon Walker at the ASC and Laura Breiding at Accenture for working with me to make this happen.
