“Spirit Unbroken” depicts a fallen warrior who is attempting to rise from a prone position with the aid of his shield. The piece is not only well done, but it genuinely reflects the essence of its title.
Tracy Beeler’s many talents as an artist began at an early age initially under the tutelage of her father, Joe Beeler, a founding member of the Cowboy Artists of America. Her mother Sharon, also a painter, assisted in Tracy’s development as an artist. Tracy then went to Florence, Italy, for a five-year intensive study program which focused on anatomy, composition, sculpting and drawing.
