Finding Their Place in the World

“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

“Padre’s Flowers” – Jack Sorenson

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

“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

“It’s a Wonderful Life” – Jack Sorenson

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

“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.
