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.”
