I painted this at the Santa Paula airport here in California while standing on a very hot tarmac. It was so hot, I roughed it out pretty quickly and touched it up when I got back to my studio. As soon as I saw this sign with that chair and bucket and broom, I knew I had to paint it. It was the craziest looking still life I've ever painted.
George’s paintings are inspired by his native Panama, where he was born and raised. The artworks are quiet, thoughtful representations of both city and country life. It might surprise the viewer, given the subtle sophistication of George’s paintings, to learn that he has also been a professional animator with the Walt Disney Company for over 30 years. He directed the 1988 feature length animated film Oliver and Co., and worked on other renowned projects including The Lion King. Now, George’s professional focus is on animation for Disney theme parks and special projects in China. When he’s not animating for Disney, he is painting on location in exciting locales including Shanghai and Panama, or from his home in Southern California.
