Food is libation, pastel, Johanna Bohoy

"A la Carte Art: food paintings by Johanna Bohoy

A sip– forget your fears.
A drink for the moment. 
R&R Time.
One shot of pleasure.
Two parts sublime.

Food is sharing. Picking raspberries by Bohoy.

From my exhibit "A la Carte Art: Food Paintings" by Johanna Bohoy

FOOD is sharing: 
A gift from the Earth.
Ruby red pockets of juice.
Pick one.
Eat two.
One for me-
None for you.
All's fair with kids.

 2008, pastel, 8x10 in 14x15 Ralph Lauren frame, $350.

A la Carte Art Exhibit, Johanna Bohoy

I am exhibiting my food paintings, the month of April In Manchester-by-the Sea, Ma. 

“We are what we eat,” wrote Anthelme Brillat-Savarin in 1826. 
"Dis-moi ce que tu manges, je te dirai ce que tu es." 
Our lives, family, friends, events, libations, and love are all intertwined with food. 
My connection to food is enhanced by my work. 
I am a Dame in Les Dames d’Escoffier International, am active in the Masschusetts Specialty Food Association, am a designer of food packaging, and my husband Larry is my comsummate ‘chef.’
