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 that this painting has officially sold bringing in a significant amount of money towards a local small business. Our friends at Libby’s Southern Comfort will receive 100% of the proceeds going to both their staff and business.
Looking forward to picking up the brush and making more art. The odd thing about this time is that Colin and I haven’t been able to paint together on the same canvas at the same time and I miss that. Pretty soon we’ll be painting together again and I can’t wait!! 😁
In the meantime we’re happy our art was able to make a difference in a small way. Congrats to the winner of the painting and we hope you enjoy!

Giving the gift of art is always amazing! Here’s a photo of the proud recipient of one of our latest commissioned paintings titled, The Roebling Bridge | A Kentucky Perspective #JJCD#JeffJohns#ColinDaugherty
Who’s up for a challenge? We are…Ha! That’s for sure as we gear up to paint this amazing view of Cincinnati that I personally grew up with. Here’s the reference visual for the next commission painting, titled, View from Devou Park | Cincinnati. And yep, it’ll be in black and white.
Black and white paintings, are they easier? Well you don’t have to mix all the different colors, however the hard part is getting the shades of grey to separate.
Stay tuned for progress on this painting that’ll be titled, View from Devou Park, Cincinnati Skyline | 30″ X 48″ acrylic on canvas by Jeff Johns and Colin Daugherty
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 the final capture of his painting titled, Beautiful Columbus Ohio Skyline. It was really neat to work this painting as it captures everything we love to paint, from the reflections in the water to the architecture of the city. Even had the chance to work in some vibrant green grasses and trees into the portrait of this vibrant city.
This piece has been commissioned by a Janney, a leading full-service wealth management, financial services and investment banking firm to outfit their office expansion in Columbus Ohio.

Here’s the final capture of his painting titled, Short North, Columbus Ohio. It was really neat to work this painting as I’ve had artwork just down the street in a gallery a few years back, then one day to paint the street scene that captured my heart was really inspiring.
