Jorge Bennett’s Paintings of “El Valle de Anton”, Panama. » “Fonda de El Valle” (Small Restaurant of El Valle)   Leave a comment

I made two paintings (from different angles) of this Fonda ( a “Fonda” is a small restaurant with Panamanian typical foods). The innocent absent-minded face of the boy eating the hamburger is what first called my attention, and so I started taking many photos of the scene. Panama was celebrating commemoration patriotic feasts during those days and schools had to parade; thus the child’s uniform. This was by far the most complex of all the paintings in this exhibition, but I really enjoyed painting it.
