  1. Rebecca was looking at your art online and again, she said, “wow, it makes my BONES SHAKE!”
    HEHEHE…

  2. Hey Jack. It has been way too long. Just found your website, and wanted to say hi. I will have to try and stop by next time I am down in Wichita. I hope things are going well. Tell Amy hi for me.

  3. I love the new pictures of wood milling. – Give Obie a squeeze for me.

  4. I am really in awe – to think we are getting this incredible HANDMADE alderwood piece. The pictures are beautiful and I am so excited to have it in my home. Your detail work is truly exquisite Jack.

  5. Jack,
    I’m so glad to find you back in the world. I’m curious about your life now. Feel free to write me.
    Yours Truly,
    BiL

    P.S. I’m working with a kids groupd called Whoop Dee Doo we are always looking for new acts and your puppets would be perfect.

  6. Great site – Amy pointed me to it so glad you have a web presence.

  7. Jack, your work is lovely. I’m so glad to “see” you again here. Blessings to you and your family.

    In Him,

    Heidi (Brandt) Schaap

  8. I’m glad to see your homage to Asher Lev. I think it was a great book and I think everyone who is even vaguely interested in art should give it a read.
    If for no other reason than to examine ones own willlingness to pay the cost.

    • Allen,
      Thank you for your kind recognition. The book is very good. I appreciate the voices out there who acknowledge that a price is paid, though I expect few are willing to pay the full cost.

      Jack

  9. Your pictures are fabulous. I plan on showing my Middle School classes your website as we have just finished a printmaking project. Thanks!

    • S.B. Thank you, I am honored to be a part of your class. It would be nice to hear what your students think.

  10. Pingback: Third Sunday of Lent: Covenant « The Contemplative Life

  11. Does the phrase, “Real Life, No Tambourines” mean anything to you? Did you help make a cd several years back for a youth group? I still have that cd 🙂

    • Hi Andi, some things I have forgotten, but I remember playing two or three songs on that cd.

  12. Jacob,
    My name is Steve Greenberg. I am rabbi and a writer and I love your work and would like to use your depiction of Jacob and the angel on the cover of my book, which was printed in the US awhile ago and is coming out in October in Hebrew. You can go online and see it. Wrestling with God and Men: Homosexuality in the Jewish Tradition. The book, won the Koret Jewish book award for philosophy and thought and is now being published by the Kibbutz Movement in Israel. Might we speak about this?
    Rabbi Steve Greenberg

  13. Jack…
    Please be in touch! I am rabbi who loves your work and I would love to purchase one of our drawings for a book cover for my book. The book has changed lives…published by the Univ of Wisc Press and won the Koret Jewish book award….Please email me soon.
    Rabbi Steve Greenberg at rabbistevegreenberg@gmail.com

  14. I work for Cody Rolph as a fishing guide at the bighorn river lodge in Montana. After a recent meeting with Cody he was telling me about you and showed my your website. Incredible I enjoy the barnwood rockers you built almost everyday when I get off the river. Not only beautiful but also very comfortable. Well done

  15. I am pretty amazed by the things you build out of wood. That inspires me. I hope to find more of these pictures. Greetings from Germany

    • Thank you for your kind words, Sven. I hope you continue to visit.

  16. Do you sell a color version of Jacob wrestling? Why is the b/w flipped (right to left)? Amazing talent thank you for creating such intriguing and mystical images.

    • Phil,

      Thank you for your comment. I don’t have any color reproductions of the painting of Jacob for sale. I am getting ready to do some hand colored prints from the black and white print if you are interested. You can email me at playbanjo@gmail.com. The reason the b&w image is flipped, is that through the process of creating the printed image I carved a block of the original composition, which when printed produces a mirror or flipped image from the original. I hope this helps.

      Jack

  17. Just found your site. Really awesome and spiritual. Can I purchase images for use in newsletters?

  18. Found your web by chance, one of those pleasant results of web surfing. I was thrilled to see your work for two (gorups of) reasons 1) for its beauty, elegnace and closeness to the environment you line in, 2) for its diversity. It seems like you live in a beautiful place and you have a very nice workshop. Batur Baslar

  19. Jack, your work is absolutely gorgeous. Your devotion to it shows beautifully. Art in motion.
