Originally from Buck’s County, Pennsylvania, Charles grew up in Ocean City, NJ and began painting and drawing scenes of Ocean City and Somers Point, NJ in 1985. The first painting that Charles sold was of Dot’s Bakery, located at 31st and Asbury Avenue. Since then, Charles has created a line of prints from his original paintings that have become very popular. He is probably best known for his image titled,
“Out All Night!,” that features the famous old bars of Somers Point, New Jersey including; Bay Shores, Tony Marts, The Anchorage, and The Dunes. Other popular Lounsberry images include; Mack & Manco, Bob’s Grill, Night in Venice to name a few. Charles works in all mediums including oil, acrylic, and colored pencil, but mainly in watercolor and he has developed his own unique recognizable style of painting that combines photographs and watercolor. He selects his images carefully and only paints scenes that have some meaning to him. He maintains a studio in Florida. Charles’ work is represented by Great Bay Gallery in Somers Point, New Jersey.
