Carlos Weil, owner of the Carlos Weil Gallery, asked me to 'modify' two bonds issued by the French during their ill-fated attempt to build the Panama Canal. These two paintings, along with others similarly 'modified' by other artists, have been included in his book, The Canal of Many Colors: A Whimsical Trip Through the Panama Canal.
