As I drive the open roads of the west, pronghorn are an animal that I see all the time. Small and compact, they have beautiful large eyes at the top of their skulls allowing them to see far and wide if there are predators around. I love painting their heads and horns -- to me, they are just beautiful creatures. This piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the sides. The work comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know Tracy

Tracy Miller could paint animals in the normal shades of color, but why follow the norm when vivid hues are so fun? Her paintings start out in a most unexpected way, painting an all-over colored tone to start. Twisting and turning, her underpainting begins to evolve from an abstract to a visual haiku of black lines and swirling colors. She wants people to see that animals have their place in this world as the unique creatures that they are. She feels the bright colors and expressions in their faces help people connect to them in a very primal way. Much like her animals, Tracy loves to be in the outdoors; hiking is one of her favorite activities. She is also a fan of road trips, “especially taking back roads where you can discover unique out-of-the-way experiences,” she says. Fun fact: Years ago when Tracy was still a fiber artist, she was featured on HGTV's Crafters Coast to Coast.
