Tug Gilberto Guardia
This is a painting that, upon request of the American Society here in Panama, I donated to that organization
for its art auction held on August 26, 2015. The theme for the auction is the Panama Canal, and it seemed to my wife
and me that it would be appropriate to depict the tugboat named for Mr. Gilberto Guardia, the first Panamanian Administrator
of the Canal. For those of us who had the honor to serve under Mr. Guardia, he was an inspirational leader. He continues to
be one of the finest gentlemen we have ever known. This painting is a tribute to him.
