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.
