Presidential Sweets (suites), pastel, Bohoy

We'll only guess that Washington ate cherries, and Lincoln-logs; Carter- some peanuts. But we do know that Reagan ate jelly beans, Clinton liked doughnuts, the Bushes ate M&Ms, and Obama craved caramels.
It's a presidential suite of sweets.

Pastel, 5.5 x 7, $100.

Ghost Ship, Bohoy

For the novel "Ghost Ship" by Lori Townsend I did a pastel painting of a ship enveloped by ghostly mists and clouds, in an ink-dark night, on an eery rolling sea. The thriller depicts reporter Zilla Gillette who investigates the human trafficking of young girls and boys who have been abducted and carried by a vessel at sea to a hidden location.

American Home Wrecker cover, Bohoy

I used my painting, done in 2008 to symbolize the commencement of Obama's presidency, for the cover of the novel "American Home Wrecker" by Lori Townsend. 
The book is a depiction of the white supremacist underworld, extreme right-wing separatist group in America, as well as a look at domestic violence investigated by reporter Zilla Gillette.

For the cover design I ripped the art apart to simulate what the “home wreckers” in the book have attempted to do– divide America and abolish what our first African American president had accomplished and to create tumult in America.

Café Days

These are the days to brunch & lunch
Inside; not out. 
Sun bathed corners in casual cafés
Hidden from chills about.

November Browns

Brings brown.
Brun branches.
Taupe trees.
Tan tall grass.

Dirt brown ground.
Stone stones.
Brown is beautiful.
Against baby blue skies.
