You moved Heaven and Earth to get that poster for me and I am so appreciative! I then spent 3 weeks traveling Central America, with that art tube!! Anyway I just wanted to update you and let you know I gave the artwork to my sister, Georgia for Christmas, she finally got it mounted and it's on the wall in a prideful place in her room! I've attached a picture! Thank you again for everything you did to help me out that day! Regards, Zoe."

Scott Struwe, Welcome To AggielandThomas Jordan Gallery fan Scott Struwe enjoying a Happy Birthday. "I wanted to send you a quick thank you and note about a recent Texas A&M piece you sold to Erin Struwe. My three boys presented it to me today for my birthday and I couldn't have been more excited. I've followed your work for a while and admired you from afar. I've seen earlier A&M pieces, but I love this piece. You happened to note the date Bonfire fell in 1999, which was my senior year at Texas A&M. I love how you've captured so many memories in this piece. Again, thank you for sharing your gift and allowing my sons to make my birthday special." I'm honored to have been a small part of your very Happy Birthday, Scott!

They remove and reduce mold, dust and allergens so you can breath cleaner air. I recommend Les at Mr Duct Cleaner for your indoor air quality needs. Thanks Les!!
Robert Bastarache, Oklahoma State TributeThomas Jordan Gallery fan Robert Bastarache visited my tent at GrapeFest this past September and ended up making a special purchase. "I happened upon Tom's booth and because I'm a sports fan, I was immediately drawn into looking through the paintings. Out of the corner of my eye, I spotted an Oklahoma State University painting. My oldest son recently graduated from Oklahoma State University so I knew I had to get it for him as a Christmas present. I did not want to buy it right then because I knew I had a long day ahead of me and nowhere to store the print. Tom was very personable and really took interest in my story about my son graduating from OSU and becoming a baseball and football coach his very year out of college. Tom gave me his card and told me to call him when I was ready. Talking with Tom over the phone and follow-up email/text correspondence was so easy and helpful! Tom shipped the painting to me the very day we talked on the phone even before I sent the check to him. Now that's customer service! My son was ecstatic about receiving this painting for Christmas and couldn't stop looking at it. He said ""Dad, Tom must have put a lot of effort into researching OSU because you aren't going to come up with all the detail in this paining without knowing about OSU and its history and tradition."" I highly recommend purchasing from Tom as you will not go wrong with product quality, attention to detail, and customer service!" I'm Happy your son likes the OSU print Robert!

Matt Schuda, Philadelphia Eagles TributeHere's a fun story from Thomas Jordan Gallery customer, Matt Schuda. We are Philadelphia Eagles Fans from South Jersey and moved to Frisco, TX in 2015. We met you at the Wildflower show in Richardson, TX earlier this year when we saw the, not yet completed Eagles painting. We spoke for a bit and you shared the stories behind it. Anyway, I was so excited and wanted a Philadelphia Eagles Tribute print. Afterwards, I Facebook messaged you and never heard back. Unbeknownst to me, my wife Dawn Marie, had also messaged you and told you to ignore me if I reach out to you. You and she made arrangements and she had purchased the framed prints. At McKinney Oktoberfest, she managed to keep me away from your booth. Unfortunately she was unable to do the same when we visited Arts in the Square for the Christmas fair. Me, being me, poked fun (harassed) you for not answering my message. You were a good sport! So fast forward to Christmas morning. My wife and girls surprised my son and me with the framed prints. The one I am holding is the canvas print and my sonâ€™s is the regular print. Thank you so much for making such a unique and beautiful work of art. It will be cherished in our home.

Steve and Janis, Classic StringsSteve, showing off his new Classic Strings print by Thomas Jordan, has loved playing music since learning to play trumpet in elementary school (which he still plays every now and then).

Now that he's gotten to that point, including writing two songs about Janis and their incredible love, who knows what his next musical adventure will be?
Howard, Classic StringsHaving gotten my love of music from my Mom, I have been playing guitar and piano for almost 50 years . I love to play guitar with groups, solo or even on an album we made back in 1973. While visiting a McKinney art festival in April, I came across this Classic Strings print by Thomas Jordan and just loved it. At first I walked away but immediately came back to purchase it. My studio is in the basement, but this beautiful print is too good to keep hidden and I now have it hanging in my den. Thank you, Thomas! -- I'm so glad you enjoy it, Howard!

This is a picture of their son-in-law Trey with the painting and they provided a short and very interesting history with the picture.
This painting was a birthday present for Trey Waldrep, a 2010 graduate of the University of Alabama and son of Kent Waldrep. In 1974, Kent was a football player for Texas Christian University when he was paralyzed in a game against the University of Alabama. Legendary Alabama coach Paul "Bear" Bryant took special interest in Kent. In 1973, Bryant established an endowed scholarship fund that benefited the children of his former players. In 2006, Trey received the Bryant Scholarship to attend the University of Alabama. It was the first time the child of a Tide opponent had received the scholarship. Trey, Kent, and his brother, Charley were extremely impressed with the painting. Trey just cannot stop talking about it.
An amazing story for sure. I am so very glad you all enjoy the painting. Thanks Again. -- Tom

We loved being up close, and so many to see. Like Karen said, almost everyone has a favorite team, and you represented a lot of them. I am enjoying my painting and showing pictures of it to other fans...even the "non-viking" ones. My phone, of course, doesn't do it justice, but I tell them about it...the detail and the research you put into each painting. Jeff hung my painting and framed the roster so that I could be reminded of who is who. With each game and each win, we are getting more excited about our trip to the new stadium. We will send you some pictures of the stadium, if we take any good ones."
Thanks again, Sallie & Jeff Fortney
