Celebrating Sydney

Sydney the iguana.  Dont’cha just love that face?

Unfortunately, Sydney passed away at the age of 19.  I couldn’t resist doing a painting of him for his….”mom”? 

I want to bathe him in vibrant color, full of life and sun.

I wrapped his tail around the edge of the canvas.

I used an acrylic medium with a heavy body to it, and impressed it with a lacy fabric to get his skin texture.

I wish I had gotten a chance to meet him, but through stories from his owner, and capturing his image in color, I kind of did.
