Flying Pig, Cincinnati

FlyingPigCincy

Here’s one of the latest commission paintings of Cincinnati we’ve been rocking. This painting in particular was commissioned by a local running enthusiast. If you haven’t heard of the Flying Pig Marathon it’s actually been around for over twenty years and is powered by P&G. To learn more about the marathon click here.

In this painting we really aimed to hero the pig over the beloved Cincinnati skyline. A nice rendition of the skyline with the Great American building in the foreground as the pig spreads it’s wings and soars over this amazing city.

Stay tuned… one more session and it’ll be complete!

Walnut Street, Cincinnati

WalnutStreet_Small

After many hours this painting titled Walnut Street, Cincinnati is now complete. The piece started from our client seeing the portfolio of Cincinnati paintings on this site and wanted to capture the neighborhood in which they live, our luck it was beautiful Walnut Street right downtown Cincinnati. We were able to capture the Aronoff Center, all the bars and restaurants and the glowing lights leading you through this unique perspective of the city.

To kick off the project, I headed down to photograph the street scene from several different angles which you can see here so our client could pick the lead. The best part about this process was that I avoided getting hit by a bus or heaven forbid the streetcar. Once the lead reference visual was selected it was time to start rocking the painting.

My guess is we have over 100 hours combined on this piece. The neat thing about this piece and all the paintings we work on is that we start the piece in it’s entirety, then I’ll take the left side of the painting, Colin will work the right until we meet in the middle. Then we’ll flip the canvas vertically and put the finishing touches on both sides to cary each of our styles throughout. The new owners are really excited about the piece and here’s a few photos of it proudly on display in their home.

St. Xavier | Cincinnati, Ohio

We love creating paintings with a lot of emotion. Both in the layers of paint, how the medium is applied to canvas and the exact subjects in which we bring to life. This piece was commissioned by a couple married in this church. To make this painting even more special, we worked the hands of the clock to the time they were married we also added the bride and grooms names and wedding date to the painting.

Pink Ribbon Luncheon | Cincinnati 2015

PinktheTownIt was an honor to be featured artists “live painting” the 2015 Pink Ribbon Luncheon, Cincinnati at the Duke Energy Convention Center this year. Such a great experience to meet so many people and showcase our true passion for painting with others and to top it off, a percentage proceeds from sales went to support breast cancer care.

We started to gear up for the event by working on a cityscape painting of the beautiful Cincinnati Skyline. We worked it in grey-scale first then decided to add pink and really Pink the Town.

What an event, not only did we support such a good cause, we also met a ton of great people and make some really strong connections while doing what we love to do, and that’s paint the beautiful Cincinnati Skyline.

A special thanks to the Chris Collinsworth Proscan Fund

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
