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.

View from Devou 2 | Cincinnati Skyline

CincinnatiViewFromDevou2_FinalThrilled to share the final capture of this Cincinnati Skyline painting. This is the second commissioned painting we’ve completed from this perspective.  After spending my childhood years inspired by this view  I was excited to see the panoramic view of both Covington Kentucky featuring the Radisson building along with all the iconic structures of the Queen City brought to life in this work of art.

While generally we prefer to paint in color, the black and white on this painting really allows the painting to focus on the architecture of the city resulting in a dynamic and aesthetically pleasing painting that will look great with nearly any decor.

Can’t wait till the new owner to this piece gets to see it in person for the first time. Getting ready to ship this piece to them in sunny Tampa, Florida.

Cincinnati Skyline | A View from Riverside Terrace

RiversideTerrace_smallHere’s the final capture of this painting titled, Cincinnati Skyline, A View from Riverside Terrace. This painting was originally kicked off back in mid September after being invited to this beautiful living space in Riverside Terrace and asked to replicate the view from our client’s balcony.

After nearly five months of working this painting, Colin and myself have finally decided it is finished. I have to say that after all the skyline scenes we’ve painted this one has to be near the top of our list due to the fact that so many of the iconic structures in the city of Cincinnati are featured in this work of art. One of my personal favorites is the Roebling Bridge and fro this vantage point it takes up nearly the left side of the canvas. Colin’s favorite structure in the city is the Great American Building and stadium and those truly glow in this piece adding constant excitement from left to right of the painting.

We’re thrilled to be finally finished with this painting and looking forward to our client seeing it in person for the very first time. Hope you enjoy too!

View from Devou Park, The Cincinnati Skyline

ViewFromDevou_Final_SmallExcited 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!

Sold! Brush Limbaugh

71344264_10217298261066677_1279370993978048512_oExcited to share that this painting titled, Brush Limbaugh has officially been sold.

This piece from 2011 kind of just happened as was painting all the time and decided to adhere a paint brush to canvas, once I had that I needed to solve what to make the painting. An amazing pun then occurred to me… Brush Limbaugh. From there it was my mission to create this painting. My end goal was to sell this piece to Rush Limbaugh for $10,000. That never happened but I am happy to share that I was recently able to trade Toby Hogan, a house painter this piece for painting our entire basement.

View from Devou Park, Cincinnati Skyline

HERO_REFERENCEWho’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.

RoeblingBridge_KY_perspective_Final_SML.jpg

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.
