Dairy Queens (fine art print) by Bonnie Marris
This shows the lighter side of animals. It is not a portrait, per se, but a close-up that will allow the viewer to relate to these dairy queens.
“There once were three cows from Green Bay
Who loved to sleep in the hay.
But when they were fed
They ate up their bed.
Now they have to stand up all day.”
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.
