The subject matter of "In the Bu With My Boo," another work from the Coconut Radio series, was meant to be about the beauty and honesty of peace. Created during the pandemic, this work represents the very first moments of peace that we were able to experience after many months of daring to leave our studio. It was a visit to the home of close friends in Malibu, which I learned shortly after moving to the West Coast was sometimes called "the Bu." Before I moved to the West when I had studios in New York and Baltimore, I learned that the word "Boo" was often a term of endearment. The larger figure of Charlie Brown is a loving portrait of my best friend and wife Jennifer, as well as all of the special loved ones in our lives. The headdress, represents a wreath of peace, and is constructed of many flowers from several of Sparky's strips. of course, the Embraced character of Snoopy is a self-portrait. - Tom Everhart
