Excited to share final capture of this painting of the Cincinnati Skyline with the view from Devou Park. After spending much of my youth taking this view in I was excited that we got a commission request to paint this vantage point. This painting captures the panoramic view of both Covington Kentucky featuring the Radisson building along with all the iconic structures of the Queen City.
I have to say we’re thrilled with the outcome of this painting and can’t wait to deliver it to our client later this week. One fun fact about this painting is that the moment it was shared on social media we had a request for another commissioned painting just like it. So stay tuned for the next one!

I’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.
You can see the original post for this panting here. 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.

Excited to share that this painting of the Roebling Bridge is now complete. This reference image was capture the day before the bridge shut down for nearly three months. Now that the bridge is back up and running we figured we’d complete the painting. Also note that this is the first painting that we’ve rocked that incorporates the SkyWheel.
This painting is now complete of the Roebling Bridge. Absolutely love painting this amazing and iconic structure. This particular rendition in black and white is quite captivating. The other thing to notice is that the reference for this one was from a day time photo versus night time was a bright inspiration on the bridge to us.
This piece is hooked, wired and ready for client delivery and can’t wait till they see it in person for the first time.

Super excited to announce that this acrylic on canvas panting of the Roebling Bridge has now been sold.
After finishing this piece nearly five years ago, it’s appeared in a few gallery shows then due to it’s large size it spent most of the time in the studio as we enjoyed it while we worked on other paintings. Until about two months ago when Brad Wainscott owner of a new restaurant in Covington, Kentucky, Libby’s Southern Comfort reached out and asked if I had any artwork to display in his new space. After this painting of the Roebling Bridge proudly hung on the walls for just a round a month a woman came in for lunch and enjoyed some of the amazing goetta hushpuppies and also wanted this painting.
It’s always fun to see the final resting place of your artwork. Upon delivery of this painting I was able to help the owner up to their magnificent home overlooking the beautiful Cincinnati Skyline. It was like a dream come true to sit there and take in our beautiful city from the comfort of her home. Always inspired by the Cincinnati Skyline you can check out our entire portfolio of skyline paintings here.
This piece is rather large at 48″ x 90″ and took some time to complete and a fun history to it. Now notice all the texture in the background? There’s a story to that. This painting actually lived three lives. The first one it was the actual Frischs Big Boy holding his hand up, but instead of a burger he was holding the city of Cincinnati. Then decided to paint over that and we did the ivory towers of Procter and Gamble. It stayed like that for a while then we decided to paint the suspension bridge.

Here’s one last look at the mural for Delta Airlines. In this capture here I’ve focused on the heart of the painting and retouched out some of the outlets, thermostats, fire alarm devices and door opening objects from the piece. Just super thrilled with where the painting netted out and happy to have another capture of our beautiful city.
