Steven's Circle Balboa Canal Zone #2

On the right you see the Balboa Commissary where we bought our food & clothes. Across the street, Balboa Road, from the Commissary on the right you see the Balboa Theater & next to it in the middle of the painting you see the Balboa Clubhouse which had a cafeteria, a soda fountain where you could get sandwiches, etc., magazine area, bakery. Upstairs was the barbor shop & the beauty parlor. Behind the Clubhouse was the Balboa Swimming Pool where my dad & Johnny Weismuller (Tarzan) taught me to swim when I was 6 months old.

Sharon as always a great painting and another wonderful memory that you have kindly shared, i am sure you may already have thought about this but combining the paintings and text would make a wonderful exhibition,

Artist Reply: Dear Ian, Thank you very much for your thoughtful comment on this. When I feel I have exhausted my desire to paint the Canal Zone, I do plan to exhibit them When I have moved on to another subject. Same as when I completed my Biwling Ball House series and moved on. I actually had 3 exhibitions for those and turned down a 4th. So yes a great idea. ??. Thank you for your kind words on this. Hugs, Sharon
