St. Xavier Church | Cincinnati, Wedding Day

Thrilled to share our latest commissioned painting of this breathtaking church located downtown Cincinnati on Sycamore Street. St. Francis Xavier Church was an absolute pleasure to bring to life with brush and paint. This church has quite the history in Cincinnati as it’s first mass was celebrated there over two hundred years ago!

Given the amazing history of the church, this piece is being commissioned for an upcoming wedding. If you look close you can even see we worked the time of the wedding into the clock hands. Enjoy!

Lake Point Tower | Chicago Skyline

Lake Point Tower, Chicago Skyline Painting

Super excited to share the final capture of our latest skyline painting featuring the amazing Lake Point Tower in Chicago, Illinois. As Cincinnati-based artists it’s always awesome to get a call to paint something outside of our beautiful city. This painting was commissioned by a lovely couple living in Colorado who will be moving to this beautiful building right across from Navy Pier.

One neat thing about this piece is that it’s the second painting that was inspired by the original photograph that I took while going around the ferris wheel with my wife while we took a weekend trip to Chicago.

Can’t wait till the new owner see’s this in person for the first time. Looking forward to boxing up and shipping out very soon.

Sisterly Love, Amsterdam

Here’s the final capture on this painting that captures the love between two sisters as they were on a family vacation in beautiful Amsterdam. The cobblestone moss filled roads, combined with the beautiful architecture really make this painting shine. There are multiple aspects to this painting that I really love. From a painting perspective I love the glow of light radiating from the right corner by the Juli Dans sign. The other component of the painting is that it really brings to life our passion of painting cities and combines it with human emotion. Thrilled with the final result and could not wait till our client had a chance to see it in person for the first time.

Here’s a quote from her Facebook post after receiving the painting. “Beyond excited to see the finished product in person! Jeff Johns and Colin Daugherty are SO very talented and I am always in awe of their skill and craft. This will be an heirloom piece for our family to enjoy for years to come!”

Optimus Prime | Transformers (A painting for Jackson)

With being home around the boys it’s been fun to do some new paintings for them and their rooms. Jackson and I spent weeks trying to figure out what to paint for his room that would capture what he was most in to right now. He recently had a Blaze and the Monster Machines painting on his wall that I did about 3 years ago and since he’s grown out of that we needed something new.

He’s super into robots at the moment and we came to the conclusion that the Transformers are the ultimate robot because they can turn from one thing into another. My favorite Transformer growing up as a kid was Optimus Prime and it’s funny that Jackson’s is too because I was able to create a toy that I spent most of my childhood with. Now it’s currently hanging proud on his well and his face when it was complete was priceless.

SunsetPainting_small 2

There’s nothing better than walk on the beach at sunset with the people you love. This piece of art was crafted to capture that special moment. And during these times of staying home and crafting art and having two of our family vacations canceled this piece really shined uplifting light and optimism during those times.

Now, I’ve got to say I’m super excited to share the final capture of our latest Carolina beach inspired sunset painting. What a joy to paint such a vivid painting during these times. This is the second commissioned painting that we’ve finished during COVID and can not wait to deliver this to the new owner.

Sunset on DUMBO | Brooklyn, New York

DUMBO_FinalPainting_SML

Sunset on DUMBO, Brooklyn, New York | 24″ x 36″ acrylic on canvas

Excited to share this painting inspired by the stunning view of the Manhattan Bridge from a city street. This area of Brooklyn, New York is referred to as DUMBO, Down under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass. It’s a famous spot, and super instagram worthy.

After seeing this perspective in many movies, in all different seasons, I just had to capture a painting from this vantage point. Another interesting component to this painting is the architecture. While I love painting bridges this was just perfect, and really branches out from all the paintings of the Roebling Bridge that I’ve done.

I hope you enjoy this painting as much as I did with the creation. Looking forward to hanging this piece in our home till it sells.

StatueofLiberty_smallHere’s a look at my latest painting of the beautiful Statue of Liberty. With COVID-19 in full force and the initial mix of emotions during this time it took a while to pick up a paint brush. Finally after seeing the impact this pandemic initially had city of New York I realized that while in quarantine it was time to do my first painting of a major icon of New York and the United States of America.

As mentioned, this is my very  first quarantine painting ever, now I must say that I had another commission in the works prior however this is my first inspired painting during this time.

Excited to share that this This painting is finally complete. Never have painted the Statute of Liberty or NYC before but thought it would be a great time to start. That said, I had a blast working it and excited to share the final capture.

On the Roebling Bridge | 30″ x 40″ Acrylic on Canvas

Excited to share that this painting has officially sold bringing in a significant amount of money towards a local small business. Our friends at Libby’s Southern Comfort will receive 100% of the proceeds going to both their staff and business.

Looking forward to picking up the brush and making more art. The odd thing about this time is that Colin and I haven’t been able to paint together on the same canvas at the same time and I miss that. Pretty soon we’ll be painting together again and I can’t wait!! 😁

In the meantime we’re happy our art was able to make a difference in a small way. Congrats to the winner of the painting and we hope you enjoy!
