Some Panama paintings from George Scribner’s feed the hungry benefit

“Calle 3 Este” (8” X 12”) — The Casco Viejo in Panama. Whenever I travel to Panama I try and go down to the old historic section of the city and take pictures. An image I’ve been meaning to paint for years. There are some shots I know I just have to wait until I get better at painting to try them. I added the figure (red shirt) in the distance for scale and interest.

I now have a YouTube channel with a few painting tutorials.

I’ve been meaning to do this for years and took advantage of the time I’ve been spending at home to film and edit a few tutorials. I break my classes down into three steps – Drawing then Values (light and darks) then finally Color. I posted the first one on Drawing and the other two (Value and Color) are on the way. Enjoy!

Happy holidays and here’s to a better 2021!

Take care,

“Taboga” (12” x 16”) This is a shot I took years ago from the old Hotel Chu on Taboga Island in Panama. I’ve re-painted it a few times and finally got it where I like it. I didn’t exaggerate the color of the house, it was just like this.


“Scale” (8”x 10”)  A couple line handlers on the Panama Canal retrieving the ship’s lines.


“Half Ahead” (12” x 24”)  Miraflores Locks, Panama Canal. I took the shot from the second set of gates around 9 p.m. after painting on site. In the painting I opened the gates (obviously would not have been happening while standing there!) to give the painting more interest and activity. My thanks to Mark Goodrich for the title.
