House Commission 5

Yesterday I delivered the first of two house commissions I've been working on over the past few weeks. This one's of a section of an old housing block in the Walnut Hills/Eden Park area in Cincinnati. Most of these homes have been divided up into apartments or condos, so they are multi-family dwellings in a beautiful setting. Each has been painted in an individual color scheme and has unique architectural details.

I started this work in the spring with photos and prep-work. The weather interfered with painting it "en plein air" as the client wanted. I just finished up on the work early last week, painted partially on site. This painting is going to a soon to be married couple as a wedding gift from the brides parents. A painting of their first apartment. The bride was there for the drop off and was very happy with the painting.
