The Suspension Bridge, Roebling | Cincinnati Ohio

Image

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.

Cincinnati in April

CincinnatiinApril_lqHere’s the latest commissioned painting, titled Cincinnati in April. Really enjoying painting this perspective of the Cincinnati Skyline because it truly captures the essence of the city’s most iconic structures. The vivid Ohio River draws your eye right up to the beautiful Suspension bridge on the left of the canvas framed by the Great American building and ballpark to the right of the canvas. The symmetry of the city is spectacular from this vantage point, which is likely why this is the third painting from this perspective and we’re starting a new one next week.

If you’d like to see the other two paintings that lead up to this painting you can view here. Cincinnati in December and Cincinnati Brilliance.

Under the Suspension, Cincinnati

UnderTheSuspension3Here’s a start on this latest commissioned painting of the Cincinnati skyline titled, Under the Suspension. This is the third rendition of this painting and really looking forward to seeing how it shapes up. Super excited to be working from this reference again as the perspective of being under the bridge and actually on the river really draws you into the city and perches you right under all the magical lights of Cincinnati.
