45085779_10214937847217806_8917605253398921216_oAs you may have seen, we’ve been commissioned by a company in Columbus to outfit their offices with our art. We’ll be rocking a series of 3 Columbus themed paintings. Here’s a start to second piece in this series.

It’s been fun working outside the Cincinnati Skyline world and focusing on some new areas. This year we’ve been asked to paint the St. Louis Skyline as well.

Excited to share the latest on this Columbus Ohio inspired painting. Still a lot more to do on this piece but it’s coming along nicely.

10834864_10204589885045219_2028440389862689861_oHere’s a peak in the studio at an early start to the painting titled, St. Johns and Cincinnati I’m rocking for our anniversary coming up in May. Don’t tell my wife I’m doing this, it’s a surprise.

What makes this painting super special is that it features the church we got married in, St. Johns, we both love the city of Cincinnati, and of course the lit up stadium of our favorite NFL team, the Bengals. I actually took the reference image one night before heading down to a Monday Night game when the Bengals beat the Broncos late 2014.

Golden Evening Suspension | Cincinnati


Here’s another painting inspired by the beautiful Cincinnati Skyline. This 24″ x 36″ acrylic on canvas painting of the historic John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge, titled Golden Evening Suspension. This painting showcases the strong foundation and vivid structure of this iconic Cincinnati landmark. The perspective for this piece is from Covington, Kentucky, so you’ll notice a small section of the Cincinnati skyline on the opposite side of the bridge.

At night, this bridge has the most beautiful gold color reflecting into the water and just bouncing from ripple to ripple. I don’t think I’ll ever stop painting this Cincinnati icon.

This particular painting is extra special to me. So special in fact, that 8 canvas prints were made of this piece so I could give them as gifts to the groomsmen in my wedding.

Beautiful Horse in Union, Kentucky | 24″ x 20 Acrylic on Canvas


Ever since moving to the country and being surrounded by the beauty of these horses everyday, Jeff Johns knew it was time to start painting them. Johns’ first painting in this equestrian inspired series titled, Beautiful Horse in Union, Kentucky, captures a special horse right off Big Bone Road in Union, Kentucky. While the entire series will be of nature and likely quite a few  horses from Union, Kentucky, he’ll have to figure out how to name the future paintings.

The painting, Beautiful Horse in Union, Kentucky is a 20” x 24” acrylic on canvas, gallery wrapped and ready to hang. Should be finished early August 2013. If you have any interest in this painting, or any others, call Jeff Johns today, 859.630.9657

Majestic Sunflower 3 | Mixed Media on 16″ x 40″ Canvas

Majestic Sunflower 3 ~ 16″ x 40″ Mixed Media on Canvas

Hope you enjoy the series of Majestic Sunflower. Happy to introduce the 3rd painting of this series. This is the second painting to be commissioned after the creation of the original which has also been sold.

It’s fun to study each piece, while building off what was learned in each of the prior sunflowers. While I’ll be the first to admit, there’s nothing like the original, the one that inspired all these great paintings, it’s fun to take what you’ve learned on one and carry that onto another, leaving a stamp in time of the progression of the Majestic Sunflower series.   It is neat to see the aesthetic enhancements made throughout each series. How far will I take it? Now that’s up to you.  Call Jeff Johns today and order your very own piece of the Majestic Sunflower series: 859.630.9657

GreatMorning™ ~ Arkansas Sunrise Painting

18″ x 18″ Acrylic on Canvas

After a wonderful weekend in the mountains of Arkansas, Michelle and I were up bright and early geared up for a long drive ahead. As we headed on our way before sunrise, we saw cows frolicking in the morning sun. We just had to turn around and take some photos of this beautiful scene. We spent about fifteen minutes on the side of the road just watching the sunrise, with whites of the cows eyes staring at us.
This painting is a glimpse of what we saw that day, and wanted to share an impression on canvas. This painting will evolve, and the process will be captured in this blog post.

Stay tuned and take care,
