On the Roebling Bridge | 30″ x 40″ Acrylic on Canvas

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.

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!

Flying Pig Over Covington, Kentucky

FlyingPigOverCovington_small

Here’s one of the latest commission paintings we’ve been rocking. This painting in particular was commissioned by a local running enthusiast. If you haven’t heard of the Flying Pig Marathon it’s actually been around for over twenty years and is powered by P&G. To learn more about the marathon click here.

In this painting we really aimed to hero the pig over the beloved Covington Kentucky Skyline. A nice rendition of the skyline showcasing some renowned architecture in both the Ascent and the Roebling Bridge as in the foreground as the pig spreads its wings and soars over the other side of the Ohio River to Cincinnati.

DeltaMural_GreatAmericanBP

Excited to announce that we’ve landed an entirely new painting commission from Delta Airlines. We will be painting a Cincinnati Skyline landscape onto the walls of the CVG Customer Engagement Center in downtown Cincinnati. This 22 feet wide long wall is over 9 feet tall and will be covered with paint from floor to ceiling depicting the beautiful city of Cincinnati and magical waters of the Ohio River.

We are honored and privileged to leverage the image rights from Steve Ziegelmeyer, at Ziegelmeyer photography to use his original photograph which has already inspired several painting renditions of this scene and will be integral in crafting this mural for Delta. To see our other paintings inspired by this photography, click here for the first one, and here for the second.

Throughout the Delta mural selection process we worked up several digital compositions of what the wall could look like with our paintings in place. Below are a few which were shared in the early rounds of the selection process. We also worked up images that included the tristate, and even versions with airplanes flying over the city which are not indicated below. In the end the painting above was selected as the inspiration to drive this mural.

 

The Cincinnati paintings included in the digital comps leveraged following paintings of the Queen City by Jeff Johns and Colin Daugherty and can be seen here. Great American Ballpark at NightCincinnati in July, Under the Suspension Three, Cincinnati Skyline and Bluffs View of the Cincinnati Skyline,

This piece will be titled, Delta, Great American Ball Park at Night | 255″ x 115″ acrylic and mixed medium on wall. Start date is August 25th. Stay tuned for progress.

Cincinnati Skyline

Here’s final capture 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. This is seriously one of my favorite portraits of the city so far.  Looking forward to rocking the next one.

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
