VINYL SERIES | Collection of Some of the Greatest Albums on Canvas

Here’s a look at our our representation of some of the most iconic vinyl albums of all time brought to life with paint on canvas. This was inspired by a client reaching out who has commissioned many of paintings and have them on display thorough their home ranging from city scapes, iconic structures of Cincinnati, animals and even some abstract pieces.

When they reached out they were looking for something fresh for their home that was nothing like what they had on their walls. We brainstormed a bit and I kicked over an idea to bring to life their favorite albums for display on their wall. After much back and forth, listening to a bunch of great music they aligned on the four albums.

From there, it was time to study the space in where the artwork would be displayed. First we started with color palette knowing that we’d be neutralizing the items to black and white and dancing key colors from their home into the art. We then worked up design layout four four canvases on their wall. Our first direction was four equal size canvases which was really neat. However it was a little expected and didn’t put much emphasis on one piece or another. So after that were were able to identify their favorite albums and look at a design direction that highlighted those. In the end we have a range of canvas sizes from 24″ x 24″, 20″ x 20″and even a 16″ x 16″ This really created a nice interest for the wall filling the space perfectly.

Here's a digital render to show how the paintings will look in their home.

Can’t wait till they see these paintings for the first time this evening!

Terrace View of Bernal Hill, San Francisco

Super excited to share that this painting is finally complete. It was so neat to have someone reach out with the idea to bring to life their view from their terrace of the breathtaking Bernal Hill right at sunset.

All the houses, pops of color and orange and yellow reflections in the windows really makes this painting pop. Can’t wait till the client see’s it in person for the first time!

Lake Point Tower | Chicago Skyline

Lake Point Tower, Chicago Skyline Painting

Super excited to share the final capture of our latest skyline painting featuring the amazing Lake Point Tower in Chicago, Illinois. As Cincinnati-based artists it’s always awesome to get a call to paint something outside of our beautiful city. This painting was commissioned by a lovely couple living in Colorado who will be moving to this beautiful building right across from Navy Pier.

One neat thing about this piece is that it’s the second painting that was inspired by the original photograph that I took while going around the ferris wheel with my wife while we took a weekend trip to Chicago.

Can’t wait till the new owner see’s this in person for the first time. Looking forward to boxing up and shipping out very soon.

Sisterly Love, Amsterdam

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!”

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.

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!

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.
