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.

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.

Unexpected Asterisk | CPSI

UnexpectedAsteriskSay hello to my latest painting. This piece was inspired by the upcoming creativity conference by the Creative Education Foundation, CPSI. Known as the Creative Problem Solving Institute. The conference takes place this June and prides itself on creative solutions for complex business issues, helping professionals like you move ideas into action. One of the sponsors of this conference is Seed Strategy, Inc. where I work as SVP, Creative. This connection along with my passion as a fine artist lead to this outstanding opportunity to design, craft a painting and ultimately be facilitating a live community art project during the event!

During the process I had great time bringing this simple symbol we use and see all the time to life. The asterisk is a symbol that basically says something was omitted from the text. I wanted to celebrate that symbol and bring a whole new energy to it.

While working several designs for how the asterisk could come to life, here’s one example of it in a lanyard card design for the 2019 event.

ColumbusSkyline_36x60_JJCDsml

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. This series of  paintings will depict the beautiful city of Columbus Ohio. This is part of a series of 3 Columbus themed paintings.

OTR, Cincinnati

OTRCincy_SML

Here’s my latest painting of Cincinnati. This one is a little bit different as my focus isn’t on the skyline, but a city street in the beautiful city. I wanted to capture OTR in this bold, impressionistic style. There’s a lot of energy downtown now, especially in this area, and wanted to bring that to life with a brush and some paints.

Cincinnati in January

Here’s the first few captures of our latest painting of the Cincinnati Skyline inspired by the view from across the Ohio River in Covington Kentucky. To just stand there and soak in all the colors in the buildings reflecting and dancing into the water is a treat to the eyes. It’s always a pleasure to try and capture this same experience at the home studio with a paint brush in hand.

This is now the fifth painting from this vantage point. You can check out these earlier paintings that lead up to this piece, Cincinnati in DecemberCincinnati Brilliance Cincinnati in July and Cincinnati in April.

Stay tuned as we continue to share the progress on this painting. We’re looking to finish it by the first week of December.
