Cincinnati in January

Here’s the first few captures of our latest painting of the Cincinnati Skyline inspired by the view from across the Ohio River in Covington Kentucky. To just stand there and soak in all the colors in the buildings reflecting and dancing into the water is a treat to the eyes. It’s always a pleasure to try and capture this same experience at the home studio with a paint brush in hand.

This is now the fifth painting from this vantage point. You can check out these earlier paintings that lead up to this piece, Cincinnati in DecemberCincinnati Brilliance Cincinnati in July and Cincinnati in April.

Stay tuned as we continue to share the progress on this painting. We’re looking to finish it by the first week of December.

Cincinnati in April

CincinnatiinApril_lqHere’s the latest commissioned painting, titled Cincinnati in April. Really enjoying painting this perspective of the Cincinnati Skyline because it truly captures the essence of the city’s most iconic structures. The vivid Ohio River draws your eye right up to the beautiful Suspension bridge on the left of the canvas framed by the Great American building and ballpark to the right of the canvas. The symmetry of the city is spectacular from this vantage point, which is likely why this is the third painting from this perspective and we’re starting a new one next week.

Foggy Night in Cincinnati

CincinnatiFoggyNightHere’s the progress capture on my latest Cincinnati painting. This piece captures the beautiful Suspension Bridge, vibrant Ohio River and fog sweeping across some of the city’s most iconic buildings.

You’ll notice that I’ve worked a lot of purple tones into this piece and that is for two reasons. 1.) I began working a session on this painting the day after the passing of Prince and was inspired to use more purple. 2.) With the primary focus of the painting being the Suspension bridge which is predominantly yellow in tone, purple is the perfect complement to really set off the bridge. Stay tuned for the final post of this painting.

Testimonial on latest painting.

12814710_10207130701164034_4257797675821309007_nIt’s rewarding to finish a painting. But the real joy comes from getting a note like this.

“I truly adore this painting. It is my favorite piece, and that’s saying a lot because you know we have some good artwork. Can’t wait to always have a piece of Cincinnati with us as we move.” ~ Tegan

Now that’s saying a lot because they have a Leonid Afremov painting. One of my favorite artist for intense use of color.

The photo above is the painting hanging in the new owners home. Y0u can check out a high quality image of the painting here.

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

Pink the Town, Cincinnati

Pink the Town, Cincinnati Here’s a capture of our latest Cincinnati Skyline painting. The idea behind this painting was to drive awareness and support for Breast Cancer. This piece was created strictly as a donation for the Pink Ribbon Luncheon, in Cincinnati at the Duke Energy Convention Center. This piece will be featured in an online auction available for bidding early October 2015.

Really hoping that this piece drives awareness and brings a good return to help the Chris Collinsworth ProScan Fund Pink Ribbon Luncheon.

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
