About Our Auction

About Our Auction
The purpose of this on-line auction is to raise funds for Wings Programs Inc. - an Equine Rescue located in Corvallis MT. Tracy Rose Moyers is a talented local artist who is donating a portion of the proceeds from her paintings to Wings. The paintings are based on photos of Wings' rescues.. Tracy's beautiful, bold watercolors and acrylics highlight the faces of some of the horses and donkeys that have been saved and cared for by Wings over the last few years. Proceeds will be used to continue to feed and care for these beautiful animals while working to rehabilitate, rehome, and provide sanctuary to some.

Tracy Rose Moyers - Artist Overview

Inspired by the Rocky Mountain West- the almost heavenly feel of the Rocky Mountains, the freedom and wild spirit of the wildlife and the lore of living with and respecting nature and the view directly out my own studio window is the inspiration behind my paintings. Concentrating on the eyes of the animal or human to reveal their inner spirit and soul, to connect personally with the subject matter is my focus.

The approach to the work is direct, without any preliminaries. The process is based on intuition allowing the media and subject matter to become one. The style of painting leans more toward realism with an abstract touch with the desire to reveal the feelings the subject matter evokes within me. And to pass that feeling on to the viewer. My work has been described as American Realism conveying a sense of artistic patriotism.

Creating the Faces of Rescue Series - Artist Experience

The Faces of Rescue paintings include both 12 X 12 Watercolor on Canvas or 6x6 Acrylic on Canvas. I experimented with the paints and colors to get the desired effect. After the painting is finished and dried, I spray it with several coats of UV protectant varnish to protect it. This allows you to hang it without having to be under glass like watercolor on paper.

Painting these paintings of the rescues was a lot of fun. I was trying to capture each rescue's unique personality. I painted them from the photographs and didn’t meet some of them until afterwards so I was surprised to see some of them were miniatures. They had sweet and adorable personalities.
