Jack Tracy is driven to create art that lifts the soul. The goal of The Jack Tracy Company is to create entertainment and beauty in music, art, and film. The purpose is to find and express the elements of life that make the heart tender and to share those precious, captured moments. This you will find in sensitive color, in a quiet lullaby, or in a grand story that frees us to enjoy what is true. Heavily influenced by his childhood in southern Bavaria, and a former and lifelong resident of Madrid, Spain, Jack Tracy’s love for European art and literature have been the foundation of his ground breaking and inspirational work. In addition to thirty years of church service, Ordination, a calling to three Pastorates (including Senior Pastor) Jack Tracy also raised his three children at home through tenth grade as a Tutor in the Colorado Public Schools. Jack Tracy has an exceptional eye for color and a hope and harmony that moves your soul through beauty and imagination. Here’s to life….

An artist creates art. I am an artist. I like to try to represent what I see. It was Van Gogh's way. I see a certain commonality and familiarity in almost every face I encounter. It seems to be true to me if I am in Europe or here, if the faces are white or black or brown or red, And I have seen many of them all. I think that's why 13 Friends came about. I just recognize faces. I paint with splashes of color. Here in Southern California I am every day mesmerized by the colors produced by the sun and the sea. And here, all around, all the time, is the beauty of emerging spring leading again to a gloriously colorful summer. I enjoy mixed -media. For example, I incorporated some of my line drawings into my photography. My dream here is to create a collection of unique clocks whose faces and construction would be the canvas for my art. I have a life-long love affair with clocks. More to come.
I'm especially excited about the progress of the story I've written, Apartment on Fire! Its a quirky dramedy about a klutzy guy who feels he must rid himself of his overbearing mother if he is to succeed in life. In the apartment next door is a kooky girl who feels smothered by her domineering fiancee. She dreams of being free of him. The two meet in dreamworld and fall in love when circumstances conspire to drive them apart. She is kidnapped. To find her, he enlists the help of some unusual friends whose smarts and clever weaponry finally unlock the secret of her whereabouts. But, finding her and winning her are not the same. Now, for the first time in his life he chooses to fight. And who he must fight is his biggest surprise. How he fights, and wins, is the big surprise for us. We'll make our pitch at the American Film Market in Santa Monica, November 2-9. Pull for us!
