Here’s the final capture of one of my most current paintings of the Roebling Bridge from Cincinnati. This was inspired from a photo I captured after spending a beautiful day at Smale Park this past spring while all the beautiful Hyacinth flowers were in bloom. With all the color and beauty framing up one of the most iconic structures in our area I had to lay on the ground and capture the perspective. From there the paints hit canvas and the painting process started.
Hope you enjoy this painting of the amazing Roebling Bridge.

This painting is now proudly on display at Libby’s Southern Comfort, located in beautiful Covington, Kentucky. While on display this piece is now enjoying the amazing aroma from the best fried chicken in town. If you’re in town be sure to stop by to enjoy this latest painting of the Roebling Bridge and some out of this world southern cooking.
While making this trip, even got to enjoy some of the delicious fried chicken to-go!

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 still a bit more to do this piece but I’ve made a bunch of progress and wanted to share the latest. Stay tuned for the final piece. Once it’s complete, I’ll take a nice photo with the DSLR and post.

Excited by the request to create another Majestic Sunflower, I’m going to share the entire process with you. This new piece of artwork will be created with mixed media on a 16″ x 40″ canvas. Starting with the initial sketch on canvas, I plan to give you a peak behind the curtain throughout the entire process of the creation of one of the most dimensional paintings in the fine art world today. As you track this post starting with the initial sketch, you’ll be taking the journey of texture building and layering of paint to breath life into this sunflower.
I never thought I’d recreate a painting, but when there’s a demand for a piece it really fuels the entire process. This new-found motivation is sure to power an even stronger painting than the original. But, even if this piece ends up more beautiful than the original, it will be a piece entirely of it’s own. The first Majestic Sunflower has a beautiful DNA to it, and taught me what I needed to learn to truly rock this entirely new piece of art. I really hope you enjoy the progress on Majestic Sunflower II. ~ JefferyJ.
