Jack and I are offering a piece from our personal art collection to our Team Senkarik Members. This is a rare opportunity to own a Jack White giclee on canvas of the Dallas Cowboys Head Coach Tom Landry. Father’s Day is just around the corner, maybe that special father in your life is a Dallas Cowboys’ Fan!
When Jack was commissioned to paint the posthumous portrait he was only supplied a black and white head shot of Coach Landry talking into the headphone. Jack had personally known Tom and knew they were almost the same size. So we used a picture of Jack as reference for Coach Landry’s body. Grant Teaff, former Head Coach of the Baylor Bears and Executive Director of the American Football Coaches Association modeled for the hand holding the playsheet. Just thought you’d enjoy hearing how the painting was composed. And remember, you can click on any of the pictures to see the image larger.
The original oil painting is life size and hangs in the Coach Landry Prayer Room at the Kansas City headquarters of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Landry holds the actual play sheet from the November 22, 1984 game that was supplied by our friend, Danny White, who was the Quarterback at the time. The Cowboys beat the New England Patriots 20-17. When Jack was visiting with Roger Staubach, the former Quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys, he was told, “even though he is no longer here with us, Coach Landry is Still Calling the Plays in my life. He gave me a great foundation to be successful.”
The art measures 36 inches tall by 18 inches wide and is signed “Jack White” in the lower right corner. The outside dimension of the frame is 42 inches tall by 23 1/2 inches wide. This Jack White Giclee on Canvas ARTIST PROOF of Still Calling the Plays appraises for $5,000. But we are starting the bid on eBay at only a penny. That’s right ONE CENT! The auction ends Tuesday, June 3 at 8 PM Central Time.
Happy Bidding and Hugs,
