Justin paints multiple skyscapes contained in forms that twist and overlap each other. These contorting forms mimic the behavior of thoughts and emotions when observed in the mind through meditation. He represents these mental events as skies because of the infinite variety of moods a sky can evoke. Justin uses colors that challenge each other for dominance, generating a visual energy. These color combinations are meant to evoke an intensity which he equates with conscious awareness.
