Oscars Red Carpet 2021-Wings on the Runway ©Bohoy

No runway to speak of.

No zoom; no masks.

No hosts to boast.

Big shoulders. 

With wings of freedom.

Mixed media, 10x8.

In Bermuda there was beautiful young schoolgirl on a bus dressed in brights that matched the houses and flowers that whizzed by. I did not see that she was black. I saw a colorful child that I needed to paint.

When I had my very first job as a teen painting signs in Corning, New York I saw a hilarious man that I respected who was my first boss. I did not see that he was black. 

When I hired a photographer at my first design job in Boston I saw a talented, wonderful man who took the creative photos that I needed. I did not see that he was black. 

It wasn’t even a thought in my head each time. NOT  THOUGHT.

What is wrong with those in our world that don’t see a person as a person.

The newborns.
Glad to be alive. 
Frolic and dance, bounce and bob, jump, and scamper, and skip on the green.
Spring is coming.
HURRAY.

Diversitree

Just as the trees, flowers, vegetation, and animals share the earth; so do we. All colors, all countries, all creeds.

We are all ornaments on the tree of life.

Celebrate this diversitree.

Pastel, 9x12.

Thanksgiving gift

























Our good earth bestows a gift each fall. 

From its watery bogs pop plumb ruby red jewels, if sweetened, grace our tables of Thanksgiving. Cranberries. 

Like 2020 they are bitter, but can be sweet.

Our stars 
The men & women who fight and fought for us.
They place freedom in the hands of the children of the future.
Thank you.

Halloween House

"Halloween House, 2007"

Moonlit night, 

a scarey sight, 

glimmer of light, 

a dose of fright– 

Who dares to knock?

Honors

A thank you on 9/11
I put up this painting in April in honor of the Covid workers, but now I revised it to include the firefighters and state troopers that came to our aid when our camper van burned on our way for a Labor Day vacation. 
Since today is 9/11 it's a reminder of how appreciative we are, and should be, of our 1st responders. 
Prayers for them as they fight the fires in California.
