Almost Heaven

“Almost Heaven” – Jack Sorenson


As a Christian and someone who loves the mountains, how could I not be a fan of this painting?

Ridgeway, Colorado is one of my favorite painting locations earth. That’s where John Wayne’s “True Grit” was filmed, and I think it’s one of the most beautiful parts of Colorado.  I’ve painted in that area several times over the years. I used to go every fall when the aspens turned, and I continue to be inspired by the rugged beauty of the San Juan Mountains and the Dallas Divide in particular.

God has Blessed our nation with many stunning locales, but few can complete with the beauty between Ridgeway and Telluride Colorado.
