Hidden Secrets
by Bonnie Marris

“My paintings are private moments with the untamed, an intimate moment with the elusive side of the wilderness,” relates Bonnie Marris. “If connections between two people begin with the eyes, I think that when you are introducing people to wildlife, you should begin in the same way, with the eyes.”

“There is a line in a song by Cheryl Wheeler ‘. . . they hear voices older than time.’ It’s part of the aura around wolves. When you look into their eyes they seem to see so much farther and know so much more than we do. People have come up to me at shows and tell me that they’ve felt it was the first time they’ve connected with a wolf. I get so excited when I hear that.

“I think about our history with wolves and how much, throughout history, we feared them. It seems we are now attempting to understand them rather than fear them. Wolves are so secretive. It’s taken a long time to realize that they share many traits with us. If you think about how family oriented the pack is, it’s amazing. Family is family and we share that social nature.

“We are so busy and so rushed, a painting is a way to stop and spend a few moments discovering something new about the world in which we live. In the end, it gives us the chance to discover something new about ourselves as well.”

Morning Muses
by Bonnie Marris

Artist Bonnie Marris lives on a farm in Michigan with her husband, three horses and two dogs. Collectors of her work will recognize the coloring on this pair of friends, caught early one warm fall morning when Bonnie stepped outside to check on them. Her horses are her muses and she never tires of following the light moving across their backs throughout the day and the way the whites and shadows in their hair change colors.

“I love this painting because it is as much about the relationship between the horses as it is about the lighting at this time of day and the textures in the grass, alongside the ripples in the water. It’s a meditation, a very soothing piece.”

Marris has become a very successful fixture at the annual Masters of the American West Fine Art Exhibition and Sale at the Autry National Center of the American West and 2010 was no exception. Watch future Catalogues for more exceptional offerings from Bonnie Marris.
