NOTES: Social Viewpoints was the winner of the David P. Usher Patrons’ Choice Award at the 2012 Masters of the American West! Take pleasure in this prized and privileged glimpse of the carefree nature of the untamed wolf.
“Those of us who are social beings have many different ways of looking at things and many ways of communicating our opinions and feelings which is why I had so much fun creating this piece,” Bonnie Marris states. “You can read the viewpoints of each wolf and compare them to your own. I, myself, often feel my view of things is kind of askew from everyone else’s so I guess I'm the wolf in the middle. I don't know if the ‘painting police’ allow the main subject to be upside down but that is just how this one just had to be!”
Marris’ Social Viewpoints gives you the chance to make a personal connection with the elusive side of life in the wilderness. This joyous work will be available in two sizes. The over-sized MasterWork® Fine Art Canvas edition at 45 x 27 and in an edition of 15 makes you feel as if you are a member of the pack itself. The standard-sized Greenwich Workshop Fine Art Canvas, in an edition of 45, is a jewel to be admired. Whichever you choose, expect a one on one encounter with Canus lupus as you’ve never experienced before!

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."
