Medium: 20 x 16, Acryllic (on canvas)
I developed this painting in order to make a submission to an open showing in Denton’s Fiesta on the square. The submissions must show an aspect of Latin American culture or be festive.
I believe this Iguana is both.
The title I(m)guanna sounds like “I’m gonna”. In my case it says “I’m gonna Thrive”. Iguanas can survive in extreme heat. It is a personal attempt to make a statement that I’m going to thrive and do well when the heat and pressure of being a successful artist is increased.
