“Finding their place in the world” – Jack Sorenson

PURHASE PRINT

This is kind of a humorous painting. These cowboys are hopelessly lost and have stopped to stare at their map up on the Llano Estacado, where I live. The landmarks are few and far between. Even the roan isn’t sure where they are.

“Padre’s Flowers” – Jack Sorenson

PURCHASE PRINT

I did this painting for the Altar Guild at our church.  I do a painting for them each year and they sell chances on it.  Usually I paint Jesus or the Blessed Mother, but this year I decided to paint an old Spanish Mission.

Being a story-teller, I couldn’t just show the building.  That burro is feasting on the poor priest’s flowers.  I don’t think he’ll be happy when he finds out.

“American Pride” – Jack Sorenson

PURCHASE PRINT

This painting was done for my first book with Harvest House Publishing, “Everything I Know I learned From My Grandpa”.

I’m a patriotic American, and I wanted to show a grandfather teaching his grandson respect for our flag and what it represents.  This is obviously something they do together each morning and something I wish more American’s did.  Clearly, chickens are not very patriotic.

“It’s a Wonderful Life” – Jack Sorenson

PURCHASE PRINT

Hot off the easel.  I feel very Blessed to have grown up Cowboy.  I have wonderful memories of my childhood.  There was a lot of work of course, but there was a lot of fun as well.  I always felt sorry for my friends that grew up in town.

On any given day when I was young, I might have been huntin’ with my dad, fishin’ with my granddad, taking a long (several mile) ride in the Canyon, or swimming my horse across one of our ponds.  It was Heaven on Earth if you ask me.

“Mama’s Little Helper” – Jack Sorenson

PURCHASE PRINT

I could spend all day watching a young foal and his mama.  Everything is new to a colt…when they first learn to walk, when they discover that they can run and jump.

More than once, I’ve been painting mares and foals in a pasture and had to stop because a colt was so curious about what I was doing that he would approach my easel and try to put his nose in my palette.
