Repatriation-of-Sgt-Robert-Sanchez11x14in-WATERMARK

My paintings tell the inspiring stories of people who dedicate their lives to continuing purposeful traditions and aim to create their own lasting legacies. Over the last ten years, I have focused on all kinds of compelling individuals – athletes, musicians, designers, and other talented people. Many of these subjects are friends and acquaintances, and one of the most gratifying parts of my process is spending time with them to learn about their passions and purposes. My current body of work is focused on the deployment stories of special operations military groups and their vulnerable, poignant moments in an otherwise brutal experience. Working closely with members of various Seal units and Ranger battalions, I have collected imagery and conducted interviews with both active and inactive servicemen and women. The first piece in this series pays homage to a close friend and Army Ranger, Sgt. Robert Sanchez. During a deployment to Afghanistan in 2009, Sanchez was killed by an IED explosion. The painting shows the members of his battalion loading his coffin onto a plane to be shipped home during his repatriation ceremony.
