United We Stand
I was in the process of creating a patriotic mural for a police department in Dyer, Indiana when I started discussing some ideas about a police tribute painting with Dyer Police Chief David Hines, Detective Commander Don Foley, & Commander Jim Bazant. We spent that evening bouncing ideas back and forth. It was about a week later when I began painting United We Stand. I have created this piece to pay tribute to all of those in Blue across America. The Dyer, Indiana Police Department has played an important role in helping me show support to officers and their families. This campaign would not have been possible without them.
Since then, I have donated over 30 police tribute prints to departments and families of officers across the U.S. The original painting is currently on tour and is displayed at different police departments throughout the country.
