Some exciting news! We’ve been commissioned by a company in Columbus to outfit their offices with our art. We’ll be rocking a series of 3 Columbus themed paintings. Here’s a start to the start on the first piece.

 

Other pieces in this series of Columbus themed paintings will include a rendition of Short North, one of my favorite places when I visit due to the all the great shopping and restaurants and of course the art galleries. The other piece in this series will be a print of the Ohio State Stadium titled, The Shoe at OSU. You can see that painting in more detail here.

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.

Music Hall

MusicHall_Hero_smallThis piece is finally complete and has to be one the first paintings of Music Hall that captures the entirely new facade. A few features include newly reopened windows and elaborate painted black bricks that accent the red bricks on the building. Really great work to the teams at Messer, PWWG and 3CDC and the rest of the project team for bringing to life the new face of Music Hall which was such an inspiration to paint.

It was an honor for myself and Colin to paint this key icon in the city of Cincinnati since 1876. This is our second painting of Music Hall, click here to see the first which captured the Lumenocity event from a few years back.

St. Johns and Cincinnati | Acrylic on Canvas

St. Johns and Cincinnati Here’s the latest on the painting I’ve been rocking for my wife and I. This painting captures everything we love about the city. The church we were married in, Paul Brown Stadium on a Monday Night Football evening and of course the amazing skyline.

There’s about fifteen hours left until this piece will be complete. My plan is to tighten up the buildings in the skyline, add some color and form to the houses under the skyline and treat the expressway like a time lapse photo with blurred lines of traffic to really add some color and boldness to the piece.

Stay tuned for the final piece. Once it’s complete, I’ll take a nice photo with the DSLR and post.

Enjoy! Jeff
