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.

This piece will be titled, Delta, Great American Ball Park at Night | 255″ x 115″ acrylic and mixed medium on wall by Jeff Johns and Colin Daugherty.
Excited to announce that we’ve landed an entirely new painting commission from Delta Airlines. We will be painting a Cincinnati Skyline landscape onto the walls of the CVG Customer Engagement Center in downtown Cincinnati. This 22 feet wide long wall is over 9 feet tall and will be covered with paint from floor to ceiling depicting the beautiful city of Cincinnati and magical waters of the Ohio River.
Throughout the Delta mural selection process we worked up several digital compositions of what the wall could look like with our paintings in place. Below are a few which were shared in the early rounds of the selection process. We also worked up images that included the tristate, and even versions with airplanes flying over the city which are not indicated below. In the end the painting above was selected as the inspiration to drive this mural.
Here’s a painting of a beautiful dog and his frisbee. While our major focus is on architecture and cityscapes often times featuring the Cincinnati skyline. We also enjoy painting animals and nature inspired scenes. Super excited about the soft and warm energy of this painting.
This is just the first couple session so stay tuned for progress.

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.

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.

Our most recent painting of the Cincinnati skyline was just finished this week. This commissioned painting titled, Cincinnati in July, uses bold strokes and vibrant color to capture the essence of the beautiful skyline. We continue to enjoy painting this perspective of the Cincinnati Skyline as it showcases the city’s most iconic buildings. This is actually the fourth painting we’ve done from this perspective.
