Jack Sorenson is one of the most sought out and prolific western artists of the last two centuries. His work with the American Quarter Horse Museum; Leaning Tree Cards, Santa Fe Indian Market ... and beyond. See for yourself in these works.
The premier living western artist has now become a friend, Jack has come out to Dad's Herdwear shop in Goodnight Tx. and painted a couple of amazing bison scenes. I will completely apologize for the quality of the photography of these pieces.. it truly doesn't do them justice. (paintings will be professionally boxed and packed for shipping.
We have two original paintings available for our 12 days special, you could get one, or if you add both to your cart, we have built in a little discount.
Smell the dust; admire the power; feel the ground shake ... and in Jack's words, "I'll bet the sound of the buffalo stampede, especially coming towards you, was much like thunder across the plains". 16" x 12" image; 21" x 17" with frame. Thick texture particularly in the dirt/grass. Feel free to call or write with questions. More images available on request ... if needed.
The companion work to "Plains Thunder". Same emotion and energy, but with the bison running East to West in this one. If you want the pair (if both are still available) we will do a somewhat reduced price. It really would be nice to keep this pair together. This is a different style for Jack; but they both capture the whole heart-racing breath holding imagery of what it must have been like when the big herds were on the run... and you were right there!
Though born in 1954, Jack Sorenson grew up living the Old West lifestyle that he now depicts in his work. Coming of age living and working at Six Gun City, a dude ranch and frontier town in the style of the Old West situated on the rim of the Palo Duro Canyon and owned by his father, Sorenson was deeply embedded with a love for the stories and imagery that characterized the Old West, and which continues to motivate him to this day.
Whereas other teenagers spent their adolescence working in retail or fast food, Sorenson worked as a stagecoach driver, a performance gunfighter, and a horse trainer. A naturally gifted artist since childhood, Sorenson began painting full-time in 1974. After his first one-man show sold out that same year, Sorenson committed himself to a career in art and never looked back.
Jack and wife Jeanne are also two of the most giving people you could want to meet. Art and demonstration donations from them have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for all kind of Texas Panhandle organizations and churches. And he keeps right on painting and creating.
"I think great paintings should tell a story, should involve the viewer. So much of Western Art today depicts a cowboy or Indian riding across a landscape. I think we as Western Artists have the opportunity to do so much more." -Jack
