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.
