A few years ago, we were in Florida. We took a ride up a remote canal where there is an overhang of Mangrove trees into the water. I spotted this Iguana resting in the trees. I thought it was beautiful! I said, "Stop the Boat!" Well, you don't just "stop a boat"! Our Captain had to turn the boat around so I could get a good photograph. I took several, of course. I have wanted to paint this Iguana from the very beginning. I painted him in watercolor. I used transparent colors and did a lot of layering of colors. An artist has to be very patient to do this technique. This painting was juried into the National 2016 Aqueous Show, in the Kentucky Watercolor Society, at Actors Theatre in downtown Louisville, Kentucky.
