Thank you for your comments Dennis! I had a wonderful experience in Costa Rica back in March. I was down south of Coronado province, and witnessed a performance by the Boruka tribe. It was inspired by their cultural myth, the transformation of the Jaguar. You correctly see another vertical yellow jaguar in the painting that has been almost completely wiped out. I'm thrilled you still detected his presence.
I view this as an Aztec Jaguar, something in a spiritual realm. A jungle, natural environment with the black predator blending with the surroundings with ears slightly back as if hearing a possible pray. The swirling background could possibly be representing the Jaguar's thoughts, however, looking closely above the head there appears to be a vertical Jaguar. I certainly like the composition, brush strokes, and choice of colours. The Jaguar has been represented in many of the Aztec's cultural ceremonies and is highly revered.
Thank you so much for your comments Karleen. It pleases me to know you see serenity within a colorful, busy space.
I love the fluidity of images in this piece, suggesting flowers or foliage but leaving that up to the viewer. The expression of the animal is serene which suggests a quiet colorful, sun filled moment. The pallet is exquisite!
