Art at it’s Best

This is a portrait of my iguana, Mikie, (my tropical recused pet). I was granted permission to bring Mikie to art class, she is quite big and more than a few students were scared of her. Wimps, lol. Thus, at last, she did not get to stay in the class. I had to take her to the small empty gallery. I refused to leave her there alone so I stayed and drew this. Another student came and started to draw her too.
the drawing was done in soft chalk pastel on black paper. It took about 20- 45 min. to draw. Mikie girl sat so still, just like a poser. LOL she held her hand up like that the whole time. She was a good girl and a wonderful subject. Soon the instructor brought in another teacher to see her. They were amazed at all her bright colors. I explained that she has so much color because she is an apex lizard, and I take great care of her. Most females are not nearly as big and colorful as Mikie is!

I had given this to my good friend and Mikie’s godmother, Dana. She and her husband had moved out of state, so it kind of looks like Mikie is waveing bye-bye.
