Thrilled to share our latest commissioned painting of this breathtaking church located downtown Cincinnati on Sycamore Street. St. Francis Xavier Church was an absolute pleasure to bring to life with brush and paint. This church has quite the history in Cincinnati as it’s first mass was celebrated there over two hundred years ago!
Given the amazing history of the church, this piece is being commissioned for an upcoming wedding. If you look close you can even see we worked the time of the wedding into the clock hands. Enjoy!

Here’s the final capture on this painting that captures the love between two sisters as they were on a family vacation in beautiful Amsterdam. The cobblestone moss filled roads, combined with the beautiful architecture really make this painting shine. There are multiple aspects to this painting that I really love. From a painting perspective I love the glow of light radiating from the right corner by the Juli Dans sign. The other component of the painting is that it really brings to life our passion of painting cities and combines it with human emotion. Thrilled with the final result and could not wait till our client had a chance to see it in person for the first time.
Here’s a quote from her Facebook post after receiving the painting. “Beyond excited to see the finished product in person! Jeff Johns and Colin Daugherty are SO very talented and I am always in awe of their skill and craft. This will be an heirloom piece for our family to enjoy for years to come!”

Excited to share the final capture of this painting of one of the most amazing wonders of the world, Niagara Falls. After being invited to speak at recent conference by CEF (Creative Education Foundation and CPSI (Creative Problem Solving Institute) I was asked if I had a painting I could donate to the event. Since our portfolio is mainly Cincinnati inspired artwork and current inventory is of that it was apparent that this event in Buffalo New York would need a new piece of art. With a passion to paint local landmarks as inspiration what would be better than the beautiful Niagara Falls. That’s the inspiration behind this vibrant painting.
Proud to say the piece sold for a significant amount working as a great fundraiser for this event.

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.
