Johns’ Roebling Bridge painting is now the cover of Cincinnati’s Budget in Brief Documents FY2020.

IMG_8300I’m super stoked to share that I’ve recently had this painting featured on the City of Cincinnati legislation documents. For fiscal year 2020, Cincinnati has selected my painting titled, Golden Evening Suspension, which will be used as the cover for the Budget in Brief, a document used by city council to assist in determining legislation spending, and will also be featured on the city’s official website.

It’s just awesome to see your passion come to life not only on canvas but other content that can really inspire the public. This particular painting selected by the City of Cincinnati showcases the strong foundation and vivid structure of this iconic landmark. At night, this bridge has the most beautiful gold color reflecting into the Ohio River. This particular painting is special to Johns, so special in fact, that he had canvas prints made of this piece to give as gifts to the groomsmen in his wedding.

What makes this piece extra special is that the gift of art keeps on giving, I actually sold it to longtime friend and colleague where it proudly is on display in his home, and now will live on in print and digital forms for the City of Cincinnati.

The Breathtaking Niagara Falls

BreathtakingFalls

Excited to share the final capture of this painting of one of the most amazing wonders of the world, Niagara Falls. After being invited to speak at recent conference by CEF (Creative Education Foundation and  CPSI (Creative Problem Solving Institute) I was asked if I had a painting I could donate to the event. Since our portfolio is mainly Cincinnati inspired artwork and current inventory is of that it was apparent that this event in Buffalo New York would need a new piece of art. With a passion to paint local landmarks as inspiration what would be better than the beautiful Niagara Falls. That’s the inspiration behind this vibrant painting.

Proud to say the piece sold for a significant amount working as a great fundraiser for this event.

Strength, Honor and Stability, The Elephant

Elephant_final_smlExcited to share the final capture of this triptych of an elephant. The neat thing about this lies in the true symbol of an elephant. For me, this creature has always been an icon for strength, honor and stability. So, I decided to name each of the canvases in that order. The first will be strength, the second honor and third stability. When put together roughly 3″ apart they will make the elephant.

Unexpected Asterisk | CPSI

UnexpectedAsteriskSay hello to my latest painting. This piece was inspired by the upcoming creativity conference by the Creative Education Foundation, CPSI. Known as the Creative Problem Solving Institute. The conference takes place this June and prides itself on creative solutions for complex business issues, helping professionals like you move ideas into action. One of the sponsors of this conference is Seed Strategy, Inc. where I work as SVP, Creative. This connection along with my passion as a fine artist lead to this outstanding opportunity to design, craft a painting and ultimately be facilitating a live community art project during the event!

During the process I had great time bringing this simple symbol we use and see all the time to life. The asterisk is a symbol that basically says something was omitted from the text. I wanted to celebrate that symbol and bring a whole new energy to it.

While working several designs for how the asterisk could come to life, here’s one example of it in a lanyard card design for the 2019 event.
