"The Courtship" by Bonnie Marris
The Courtship
by Bonnie Marris

Bonnie Marris has published more fine art editions featuring the red fox than any of our other wildlife artist. The red fox was the subject of one of Bonnie’s early limited editions and coincidentally that winter scene of two fox was titled Courtship. This month, we celebrate 30 years of publishing Bonnie’s work with a new vulpes vulpes (red fox) courtship painting.

Widely distributed across Eurasia, North Africa, South China and North America, red foxes hunt birds, insects and small animals, mainly weasels and mice. Red fox pairs mate for life, although they usually only live together during the winter months. The male red fox is referred to as a dog, while the female is known as a vixen and their offspring are “kits”.

About Bonnie Marris

Bonnie Marris has taken an unusual path into art; she developed her talent by portraying animals “from the inside out.” While she was a student at Michigan State University, Bonnie illustrated several major books. One volume she worked on was a leading expert’s mammalogy text that contained several hundred drawings and detail studies. This massive project attracted the attention of noted zoologist George Schaller, who invited Bonnie to prepare the art for posters that would support his worldwide rare animal relief programs. Beyond academic training and emotional involvement, art requires another element for which there is no substitute: experience. Each year, Bonnie makes two major trips, and countless smaller ones, to observe and learn about the wildlife she loves. In 1980, one such voyage took her to Alaska, where she lived in the wilderness for six months. She recounts, “To get into a natural environment and see the animals on their own terms is as important as knowing the animals themselves. For instance, gray wolves on the tundra—the vast, vast tundra with the wind and other forces of nature at their most extreme—that’s what makes them what they are. To stand not far from a grizzly that is so overpowering, so beautiful and so large . . . to watch it pull up a small tree with a swipe of its paw and just a few minutes later see it delicately picking blueberries with its black lips. . . Alaska changed me; it gave me the biggest incentive to paint and increased my interest in the predators: the cats, bears, coyotes, wolves and foxes. They exist on so many levels. Their moods show in their eyes and we can learn so much from them.”
