Jack J Wells, Western Artist and a character

Jack J Wells was at the National Western Stock Show in Denver yesterday. I guess he has been there before and at the Oklahoma State Fair, All American Quarter Horse Show in Ohio, Houston Livestock Show, Calagary Stampede, and Cheyenne Frontier Days in Wyoming. I talked to him for awhile. He is a big kid with a paint brush and pencil. I asking him how he got started and he said " Well, when I was a kid I liked to doodle, most people stop and I just plain didn't" I "think" Jack is one of the best western artists I have ever seen. He turns out beautiful pencil old western themed pictures and watercolors. He makes his living doing this. Ranching, rodeoing was his family's business. Jack has competed and shown his artwork all over the country. In 1985 , Wells had the honor of co-founding the Professional Rodeo, "Cowboy Artists Association, (PRCAA). Every member of this association is a current and active (or retired) member of a major professional rodeo organization, as well as being a qualified professional artist. He has had more than one hundred pieces of art published as limited edition prints, magazine illustrations, posters and program covers. From mintures to murals his works are shown and collected world-wide by museums, corporations and thousands of individuals. And, quite frankly he turned out to be an inspiration to me. I do beautiful stained glass and have gotten discouraged because I cannot seem to sell it. Looking a Jack I realized that its the fun and professional enjoyment of producing a quality art piece that is important. There is something to be said after all in "Art for art's sake". And OH, did I mention? he also designs business cards.
