Tall Tales tell stories of my life thus far: the experiences, dreams, fears and aspirations that I've collected in my 33 years of adventure. The lanky-limbed characters spin a collective yarn, uniting the viewer and artist in an unfolding tale of artist's life.

The series puts an introspective and contemporary twist on western art. I create fictional characters and root them in the nonfiction narrative of my life, bridging the divide between reality and my imagination. The mixed media paintings feature four characters that represent different aspects of my identity: Slim Pickens, Bluebeard, Jack Knife and The Lady. Read more about the series >

In this piece, The Lady stretches out her arms, taking in the peace and grandeur of the God that she has finally found. This painting represents the quiet strength that the women in my life have taught me. Those women, my wife, moms, sisters, grandmothers and friends, have shown me the true power of the female spirit. That it's not about ego and trying to prove yourself to the world. It's about submitting to something bigger than yourself day after day. It's about sacrifice for the greater good. And it's about helping one another and lifting each other up. Most of the women that I've learned from are anchored in their faith, which is why I included the cross on the mountain top. You can see these crosses on top of all the mountains in Germany, where my wife and I first fell in love.

Tall Tales is both a contemporary spin on western imagery and a glimpse into the fiber of my being. These energetic mixed media paintings are full of life and sure to inspire conversations about the tales that they tell, both tall and true.
