Here’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!

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.
