Bonner is known for his large, dynamic and colorful landscape art pieces that were first on display at Cottonwood Art Festival for the 50th Celebration in 2019. “After applying for a couple of years, I finally made it in for the 2019 event. The Cottonwood Art Festival is a high quality art festival with great artists who are very friendly. It has a real Texas feel to the event as the crowd and staff are warm and welcoming.”

Each art piece is produced on unique fine art canvas and HD metal prints known for capturing the very best in color and texture.
