I want to buy 2 local paintings that are 4 feet wide by 3 feet tall of beach scenery. I would really like to find a good local artist who could paint pictures of the old BCís Bar & Grill in this size to bring back a lot of fond memories! If you have information or know of a good local artist that could do this please leave information here or PM me. Iím sure one of you that has lived here for umpteen years know a good artist. Thanks for any help or information you can provide!

Talk to Jerry at the Art Gallery of San Pedro. He is connected to the island's artistic community as well as many artists on the mainland.

I have been to the Art Gallery & I somehow suspect that Jerry would not want to give me a list of his artist. I could be wrong, but I'm sure he would be happy to sell me a painting! grin

Papo does remarkable paintings of Ambergris Caye's iconic scenes. He can work from a photo.
I believe he has a studio on west side of Middle Street, near Greenhouse.

Man at Work paints very realistic scenes of San Pedro. He plays at Carlos and Earnie's bar by the airport on Sundays

Caye Time, I have talked to Man at Work & so far has failed to produce any paintings, not sure why.

Diane Campbell, I will check on Papo. I know you well & have had many beer's with you at BC's. Oh, the memories! I am related to M&M. I'm sure an intelligent & beautiful Canadian girl such as you can figure it out! But you bring up a point, I do not have a picture of BC's from the front or ocean view. Is it possible for Papo to do it from memory?

If there is anyone else that knows a local painter, please let your finger's walk across the keyboard with a name & information. Thanks for everyone's help, I do appreciate it. grin

I went with Diane Campbells suggestion & had Papo paint one from a picture I found of BC's. It turned out great, thank you Diane!

Yes, I did confuse you with another Diane, sorry! I got the picture from SanPedroScoop & it was taken by Marie Chestnut in 2005. It was a good picture & Papo did a great job of capturing it on canvas! Thank you for recommending Papo!
