Shatterday Morning | Triptych

39625152_10214433204162045_5849425452023676928_oHere’s my latest series of paintings for an amazing client. While most of the art in their home depicts Cincinnati, these were quite a bit different as we went with a more abstract and serene approach. The result of the pantings is a very distressed feel with cracks, soft blends, and gritty texture. Think of your favorite pair of jeans and this set of paintings is kind of like that.

If you’re interested in checking out any of the other paintings by this client, they have commissioned these Cincinnati Skyline themed pieces. Cincy in July, Fountain Square Cincinnati, and of course the Flying Pig Cincinnati.

It was awesome to see their reaction to artwork upon delivery. And once it was hung on the wall the paintings really came to life tying the entire room together. Here’s a few photos of the paintings on display in their new home.

While I love texture and dimension, this style of painting was completely new for me to tackle. It was fun to get in there and get my hands dirty while leveraging some new mediums. The material that was integral to this piece is crackle paste by Golden, it’s a thick opaque material that cracks when it dries. If you’re looking to rock a painting like this be sure to check that out. Also do a few test runs of the materials before you start the hero project.

We will be painting a Cincinnati Skyline landscape onto the walls of the CVG Customer Engagement Center in downtown Cincinnati. This 22 feet wide long wall is over 9 feet tall and will be covered with paint from floor to ceiling depicting the beautiful city of Cincinnati and magical waters of the Ohio River.

We are honored and privileged to leverage the image rights from Steve Ziegelmeyer, at Ziegelmeyer photography to use his original photograph which has already inspired several painting renditions of this scene and will be integral in crafting this mural for Delta. To see our other paintings inspired by this photography, click here for the first one, and here for the second.

Throughout the Delta mural selection process we worked up several digital compositions of what the wall could look like with our paintings in place. Below are a few which were shared in the early rounds of the selection process. We also worked up images that included the tristate, and even versions with airplanes flying over the city which are not indicated below. In the end the painting above was selected as the inspiration to drive this mural.

 

The Cincinnati paintings included in the digital comps leveraged following paintings of the Queen City by Jeff Johns and Colin Daugherty and can be seen here. Great American Ballpark at NightCincinnati in July, Under the Suspension Three, Cincinnati Skyline and Bluffs View of the Cincinnati Skyline,

This piece will be titled, Delta, Great American Ball Park at Night | 255″ x 115″ acrylic and mixed medium on wall. Start date is August 25th. Stay tuned for progress.
