Excited to share final capture of this painting of the Cincinnati Skyline with the view from Devou Park. After spending much of my youth taking this view in I was excited that we got a commission request to paint this vantage point. This painting captures the panoramic view of both Covington Kentucky featuring the Radisson building along with all the iconic structures of the Queen City.
I have to say we’re thrilled with the outcome of this painting and can’t wait to deliver it to our client later this week. One fun fact about this painting is that the moment it was shared on social media we had a request for another commissioned painting just like it. So stay tuned for the next one!

It’s amazing the people you meet and the views you see all brought together by art. Spent the start of my Friday night a few weeks ago scoping out the view of our next commissioned painting from our latest client’s amazing balcony.
What a great gig, getting invited into a home where your artwork will be featured as a focal point. Now this place was simply amazing as it opened up to panoramic views of the Cincinnati Skyline. Be sure to stay tuned to see progress.

Excited to share that this painting of the Roebling Bridge is now complete. This reference image was capture the day before the bridge shut down for nearly three months. Now that the bridge is back up and running we figured we’d complete the painting. Also note that this is the first painting that we’ve rocked that incorporates the SkyWheel.
This painting is now complete of the Roebling Bridge. Absolutely love painting this amazing and iconic structure. This particular rendition in black and white is quite captivating. The other thing to notice is that the reference for this one was from a day time photo versus night time was a bright inspiration on the bridge to us.
This piece is hooked, wired and ready for client delivery and can’t wait till they see it in person for the first time.

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 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.
