Bonnie Reid

Marengo County

Folk Art Painting

“I always liked doodling when I was little,” Bonnie said when she explained how she got started painting. “I love children, bright colors and nature. I would sit with my children and now my grands and try to keep busy and decided to paint again. It’s good for your mind, it especially helps me when I get to missing my son.”

She has painted with oils and water colors but prefers acrylic paints on stretched canvas. “I paint on my old antique easel, at my home.” Depending on the size of the canvas, completion of a painting can take a week or more.

Bonnie’s stated feelings of living in the Black Belt and its influence on her art are “Nature and good southern charm, such a sweetness about our culture.”

Giggling in front of a bright yellow background, there are two roosters in this happy and bright painting by Bonnie Reid.  The roosters are full of bright colors that completest the sun-colored background.  To accentuate the rooster's faces, the artist used a pen for the detail work.  You can almost hear the squawking of the farmyard birds through the painting.Bonnie Reid: Gossiping Ganders; 11"x14"; acrylic on canvas; signed by the artist
