Yesterday, while returning from the supermarket I happened into an exhibition of Peruvian oil paintings on the sidewalk. I stopped the car and stepped out to see what what it was all about.
Shortly after, a very polite gentleman approached me and mentioned that all the oil painings were on sale for that particular day only. The next day, they would travel to another commercial site within the city. Most of the paintings could be had for $400.00 per item. If you didn’t have all the cash with you, they had an installment plan. You could pay $40.00 per month until the painting was fully paid.
I didn’t have the money with me, plus I already had other money committments which were more important. However, I left the place with a bitter-sweet taste in my mouth for not buying one of these gorgeous paintings.
Below are some pictures of the art event at the entrance of Residencial El Bosque where we live in Panama City, Panama.
This is Carlos, getting ready to collect the painting and place them in a nearby van. The business day was over and it was rapidly getting dark. Time to call it a day.
An installment sale was in progress. The lady in the light blue blouse was buying this lovely painting with brightly-colored “guacamayas“.
There is never a dull moment in the world of photography.
