American Flag and Eagle Painting

Unique American Flag Art

Recently I had the pleasure to bring to life the idea of a client in Maryland, with this painting of an American eagle watching over a nest in the shape of the United States, with the U.S. flag waving in the background!

Indianapolis Skyline Art

Indy Monument Circle Art

Monument Circle in Indianapolis is located in the center of downtown, and is a beautiful place to gather for lunch in the summer or for year-round events that take place there. When I was a student at the University of Indianapolis, I used to love to go there.

In the middle of it all is the Soldiers and Sailors Monument, which was constructed between 1887 and 1902.

Original Indy Skyline Framed Art

The original art was created with acrylic paint on textured heavyweight canvas paper. It’s framed in a matte black aluminum frame, with a double mat and anti-reflective glass.

Toronto Skyline Art

Painting of the Toronto Skyline

This Toronto skyline painting is part of my new series of city skyline art!

Framed Original Toronto Skyline Painting

The original was created on 11×14 textured canvas paper and comes framed in a black matte aluminum frame with an archival and acid-free double white mat.

The main reason I thought to paint Toronto next was because they had just won the NBA championship! And I have been a fan of Kawhi Leonard for many years (sorry Toronto fans…as a native of Indiana, even I was disappointed when the Pacers drafted him and then traded him!)

This Toronto art is also available on an organic cotton t-shirt, mug, birch wood panel, matte paper art print, and a wall clock:

City Skyline Art – Chicago

Chicago Skyline Art

In the past few weeks, I’ve started a new series of paintings with the themes of city skylines and transportation maps. As a kid, I was always fascinated by downtown skylines, and remember how big of a city even Indianapolis seemed to me when I first saw the downtown.

Even though I’d rather live in the country now than a city (more room to roam, better access to nature, way less electromagnetic frequencies, etc.), I still find downtown skylines very appealing to look at.

The first city I painted was Chicago:

Each city skyline painting will have a black paint outline of the downtown buildings. This Chicago skyscape features a view of downtown as seen from Lake Michigan! The painting with blue oil paint is the original.

It’s also available as an art print on matte paper or a birch wood panel, as well as on an organic cotton t-shirt, a mug, and a wall clock:

Custom House Painting on Canvas

A Painting of a Childhood Home

Recently I’ve had the pleasure to work on a watercolor painting of someone’s childhood home, which my client is gifting, along with her siblings, to her parents for their 50th wedding anniversary!

Here it is so far:

Once finished, I’ll mat and frame this in a professional gallery-quality frame.

There is something very special about having a place to call home during childhood! I think about this often with my own kids, and they mention to me how much they love “their house”. Sure, I pay for it, but it pretty much has become their house!

I have fond memories of the house I grew up in as a child. Even though I only spent 10 years of my life there, it was during my formative years, so feels much longer in my mind than it actually was, and I suppose it it this way for many others also!

Portrait Painting of my Son

Baby Portrait Painting

FINALLY, I finished an oil portrait painting of my son! It’s been a couple years in the making. He’s now three (or, I like to say a “threenager”, which is a new term I heard from my wife the other day), but we took this photo when he was a baby seeing the beach for the first time.

For our first son, it was easy to find the time to draw and paint him (I did 3 portraits!). For our 2nd son, it took me over three years to finish one! For our 3rd child (due later this year), they’ll be lucky to get a sketch (just kidding).

This painting was created on hand-stretched organic cotton canvas.

Mural Paintings with Zenaviv

Mural Paintings in the DC Area by Artists Impacted by Autism

Starting earlier this year, I began working on art projects with a wonderful company in Ashburn called Zenaviv, which promotes and connects artists impacted by autism with businesses and individuals.

These artists have incredible natural talents that serve to beautify spaces. The positive feedback from the murals gives the artists validation of their talent and a meaningful boost in their confidence!

Recently, I collaborated with them on murals in the employee entrance at The Jefferson Hotel in Washington, DC, a luxurious 5-star hotel.

Prior to this, Zenaviv artists completed a mural painting at The Four Seasons Hotel in Washington DC, and we are currently working on several mural paintings for Fannie Mae.

Zenaviv’s mission is to empower artists impacted by autism by providing them with a means to earn income and boost their self-esteem. By the end of the year they expect to promote at least 25 artists with consistent income. Over the next five years their goal is to directly impact 2,000 artists and indirectly several more around the world!
