Spring Robin in snow

The spring robin is dazed and confused.
As are we.
It's spring, but snow petals
are replacing our flower petals.

Floating at the Oscars 2014, pastel, Bohoy

The Oscar 2014 red carpet had lots of flowing trains, blush gowns, pregnant ladies and men in white.

Snow Day, Blizzard of '78, pastel, Bohoy

Hard to believe that it was 36 years ago to the day that New England was pummeled by the "Blizzard of '78". 
The snow choked us. 
Wind whipped us. 
The ocean beat us.
Time stopped. 

We all stopped. 
Lessons learned. 
And oh so many stories to tell. 

Pastel, 8x10, $175.

Dad & Daughter bride


A proud dad commissioned this painting of his newly married daughter for her Christmas present.
He even built an elaborate frame for it.
How sweet it is- the love of a father.

Rainy Day Friends, watercolor, Bohoy

Friends.
Like Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid.
But 'chicks'.
Caught in the rain.
"Raindrops keep fallin' on my head... 
It won't be long till happiness steps up to greet me
Raindrops keep fallin' on my head
But that doesn't mean my eyes will soon be turnin' red

Cryin's not for me
'Cause I'm never gonna stop the rain by complainin
Because I'm free
Nothin's worryin' me."

From song by B. J. Thomas
