Kicking-Off the Experiment in Full-Time Goofing-Off Begins.....NOW

It's the first day of the rest of my life! In the 70s, this was a corker of a joke!* In the 20s, "corker" was a word that meant "on fleek"**!

I have retired from my real, paycheck-type job and have dedicated the rest of my life to goofing off and painting stuff.

To celebrate, I am clearing out my studio of all the B Sides* to make room for more attempts at A Sides. The following paintings are going for $0*** to the lowest (and/or first) bidder. For more information, or to put your bid in, visit my facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/janicetracyart or leave a comment below. 

Here's an early (but not earliest - those have been destroyed) seascape attempt.  I may be able to create seascapes of which I am proud by the time I die, but I'm not holding my breath (because that would just hasten my death). Take my seascape. Please. Needs a frame.

Here's another seascape that escaped me by THAT much. It's not a failure of foreshortening - there really is that much beach - but it is a failure of design. Again. Design can be a bugger, because what I am compelled to paint does not always match with what looks good on canvas. I am learning to "photoshop" reality to fit good design, but I'm a work in progress.

Here is one I have had hanging in my home for a few years. It is a view of a particular slow spot in the Deschutes River from one of our favorite hiking trails. I like it, but it has been replaced on my walls with some newer stuff. You are welcome to hang it on your wall if you like.

Here is a study of ponderosa pines. I put a skull in it once I realized there was no reason not to. You take it.

What if Van Gogh had suffered minor head trauma and then visited Hawaii? He might have created something like this. It can be yours for $0 down and $0 a month for, lets say, 600 years.

Come talk to me in the comments below or on facebook. In the unlikely instance of some sort of artwork tug-of-war, my choice of homes for the art will be capricious and unfair.
