by Bonnie Marris
With thundering hooves, flashing eyes and pounding hearts, Bonnie Marris’ horses represent all
that is truly wild in great wildlife art. Their exhilaration is contagious and their spirit truly indomitable, as Marris’ skill with the brush and empathy with the animal soul brings their joyous freedom to life.
Each morning, as the sunlight rolls over the mountains, these three horses stretch their muscles and begin their travel across the countryside. Today’s leg of the journey begins with a refreshing splash through an ice-cold stream, fresh from the mountaintop. As the water leaps into the air around their knees, the exuberant animals will take different paths over the uneven bottom of the creek bed, but by sunset they will find one another again. By the time the last star has appeared in the evening sky the family will be safe at rest, gathering strength for the next day’s run.

“Native American legends have always intrigued me,” says Judy
Larson, “especially those involving talking animals. So it was difficult
not to be enthralled by one such story, a Cheyenne legend in which an eagle is trapped in a dead elk’s antlers. After asking for help from a warrior who is out hunting, he is set free. The eagle is so grateful that his life has been saved that before flying away, he tells the man to go to the other side of a hill and to look below. There the warrior sees his reward, a beautiful stallion covered with black and white spots exactly like an eagle’s feathers.” Spotted eagle feathers, highly prized by Native Americans, come only from the tail section of immature golden eagles. In Eagle’s Gift, Judy has replicated the eagle feather pattern on the horse’s coat and has hidden therein an eagle or two.
