Congratulations Jack!


The Agent's Office

12 x 18 x .75

I met John Dietz almost thirty years ago. He came swaggering into the Rochester, Michigan art gallery that I was living in (that's another story!), looking as if he had just tied up his horse outside.

Back then, Jack was creating large paintings of strong, proud Native Americans with red and white face markings and feathered headdresses. His realistic style was tight and clean, down to the details of the delicate feathers. Today, his western subjects range from rugged mountain men to classic firearms.

Jack's painting "The Agent's Office" is a finalist in the last round of judging in the Hunting Art Prize in Houston, Texas. Congratulations!
