SunsetPainting_small 2

There’s nothing better than walk on the beach at sunset with the people you love. This piece of art was crafted to capture that special moment. And during these times of staying home and crafting art and having two of our family vacations canceled this piece really shined uplifting light and optimism during those times.

Now, I’ve got to say I’m super excited to share the final capture of our latest Carolina beach inspired sunset painting. What a joy to paint such a vivid painting during these times. This is the second commissioned painting that we’ve finished during COVID and can not wait to deliver this to the new owner.

Liberty Enlightening the World, New York City

StatueofLiberty_smallHere’s a look at my latest painting of the beautiful Statue of Liberty. With COVID-19 in full force and the initial mix of emotions during this time it took a while to pick up a paint brush. Finally after seeing the impact this pandemic initially had city of New York I realized that while in quarantine it was time to do my first painting of a major icon of New York and the United States of America.

As mentioned, this is my very  first quarantine painting ever, now I must say that I had another commission in the works prior however this is my first inspired painting during this time.

Excited to share that this This painting is finally complete. Never have painted the Statute of Liberty or NYC before but thought it would be a great time to start. That said, I had a blast working it and excited to share the final capture.

Johns’ Roebling Bridge painting is now the cover of Cincinnati’s Budget in Brief Documents FY2020.

IMG_8300I’m super stoked to share that I’ve recently had this painting featured on the City of Cincinnati legislation documents. For fiscal year 2020, Cincinnati has selected my painting titled, Golden Evening Suspension, which will be used as the cover for the Budget in Brief, a document used by city council to assist in determining legislation spending, and will also be featured on the city’s official website.

It’s just awesome to see your passion come to life not only on canvas but other content that can really inspire the public. This particular painting selected by the City of Cincinnati showcases the strong foundation and vivid structure of this iconic landmark. At night, this bridge has the most beautiful gold color reflecting into the Ohio River. This particular painting is special to Johns, so special in fact, that he had canvas prints made of this piece to give as gifts to the groomsmen in his wedding.

What makes this piece extra special is that the gift of art keeps on giving, I actually sold it to longtime friend and colleague where it proudly is on display in his home, and now will live on in print and digital forms for the City of Cincinnati.

Music Hall

MusicHall_Hero_smallThis piece is finally complete and has to be one the first paintings of Music Hall that captures the entirely new facade. A few features include newly reopened windows and elaborate painted black bricks that accent the red bricks on the building. Really great work to the teams at Messer, PWWG and 3CDC and the rest of the project team for bringing to life the new face of Music Hall which was such an inspiration to paint.

It was an honor for myself and Colin to paint this key icon in the city of Cincinnati since 1876. This is our second painting of Music Hall, click here to see the first which captured the Lumenocity event from a few years back.

Cincy in July

CincyinJuly

Here’s a progress capture of our latest commission painting titled, Cincinnati in July. This is a rather large painting which were working in black and white. It’s fun to paint in greyscale, however when you have something as magical as the city of Cincinnati you have to make sure you have the right contrast between those multiple shades of grey tones to really make it pop. Looking forward to finishing this one up very soon.
