Hi, Today I just received a beautiful piece of art that I purchased on ebay last week, it came out of AZ. Stamped on the back of the cardboard backing was your name and address, along with "Selah" underneath. Of course I 'googled' you and as a result found this site. My piece is gorgeous and I love it !! It is quite different from what I see on your site, if you happen to remember this piece and about when you may have painted it, I would love to know. I'd include a picture, but don't think that option is possible here. Anyway, just thought I'd let you know that a piece of your work has found a good home and will be viewed and appreciated every day ! Oh, yes, and it will soon be gracing a wall on the shores of Puget Sound, not too far from you......in Ballard. Teresa : )

Great meeting you and learning that you had been fortunate to know and learn with Mike Burns at SPC now SPU and become friends during your formative days. I know you would still be learning together taking turns on who the mentor was that session if he was still with us fans. Thanks for taking your valuable time to talk with me and introducing me to your other contemporary Tom Jones who I became a fan of also many years. I see you, Tom and Mike Burns with a masters talent in your placement of the your the subject and use of negative space to draw attention to the subject. Your contrast between light and dark gives me goose bumps that's why the little boat was worth the days trip and my choice best in show water color. I think Tom and Mike would be impressed also. I promise to try and organize a get together with John Ebner after school starts in the early fall. John and I will take care of lunch. Maybe some of your crew will come down to the Frye Impressionism show and we could all meet for lunch at least coffee near SPU after a viewing. Thanks again for the family hospitality your family is special. Thanks again, Rick Dagg 206 419 9143

I think i have one of your water colors! It is a lone bird flying over a bleak cove ,with mountains in the back ground. Could this be yours?

Hi Jack. I am in Eugene, OR and I believe I just purchased one of your paintings at an estate sale the other day. It's a small watercolor or gouache and is of a mountain. I looked up the name that was signed on it: Jack E. Dorsey and it led me here. Comparing it to what I see here it might be an earlier piece. I paid $5 for it. It's quite lovely and I feel lucky to have it.

Saw a nice write-up about your awards in the Skagit Herald.....so well deserved. There are many wonderful artists on Camano, but I have to say, your watercolors are so far beyond even the best & I don't have the expert eye to analyze why...wish I could because I'm trying to learn at this late stage of my life, taking lessons from John Delzell, who is very encouraging & freeing in his approach to teaching. If nothing more, it helps me appreciate your art even more.

I have two of your paintings and would like to gift them to my children. Could you please give me an approximate price? I bought one called "Hunting is Good" and another of a duck pond with a shack and dock seen through long autumn grasses. I bought these between 30 and 40 years ago, and I see that you have continued to paint and that people continue to love and enjoy your work. I have loved these paintings for years and years but feel it's time to pass them on. Thank you for your help with this.

Hi Jack, I have 2 of your wonderful watercolors - both purchased at different visits during the annual Camano Island Studio Tour...I have a watercolor of a "red wagon" that is still one of my favorites...I hope your studio is open Friday May 10th when we do the "tour".
