Pick an art magazine and the chances are that they have recently, or are preparing to, publish a story on the artist Bonnie Marris; most recently SouthWest Art, Western Art Collector and Art of the West magazines. She’s invited to participate in more of the major art shows than she can possibly supply and the invitations continue to pour in. The paintings she finishes apart from exhibitions are completed for major galleries.
Collectors are drawn to Bonnie Marris’ paintings because the love she has for the animals she paints simply radiates from the canvas. This exhilaration is contagious as Marris’ skill with the brush and empathy for her subject brings to life the joyous freedom of the wild. One of the secrets to the success of her work is showing her subjects engaged in activities that we can easily relate to without imposing human interpretations upon the actions of animals.
With Summer Fields we have a perfect example of such a Marris work. Warm summer winds are blowing the leaves and grasses. The sun heats the colors and edges until they blend into one another. Horses' tails swish and calmness blankets the field. They rest together, best buddies, massaging each other's backs and listening to distant breezes.
