The Suspension Bridge, Roebling | Cincinnati Ohio

Image

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.

Cincinnati Skyline

Here’s final capture 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. This is seriously one of my favorite portraits of the city so far.  Looking forward to rocking the next one.

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

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.

If you’d like to see the other two paintings that lead up to this painting you can view here. Cincinnati in December and Cincinnati Brilliance.

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.

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
