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.
