I am trying to create dynamic images within a loop; however, I receive an error.  Here is my code:

<cfset labelArray = arrayNew(1)>
<cfset labelArray[1] = 'Hello'>
<cfset labelArray[2] = 'World'>
<cfset labelArray[3] = 'USA'>

<cfset attr = StructNew()>
<cfset attr.font="Arial">
<cfset attr.size = 12>
<cfset = "bold">

<cfloop from="1" to="3" index="i">
	<cfset "myImage#i#"=ImageNew("",200,30)>
    <cfset ImageSetDrawingColor("myImage#i#","white")>
    <cfset ImageDrawText("myImage#i#", labelArray[i],10,20,attr)>
    <cfset ImageSetAntialiasing("myImage#i#","on")>
    <cfset ImageRotate("myImage#i#",-90)>

    <cfimage source="myImage#i#" action="write" destination="myImage#i#.png" overwrite="yes">

<img src="myImage1.png">
<img src="myImage2.png">
<img src="myImage3.png">


Unable to cast an object of type java.lang.String to Image.

How do I loop through script without receiving error?
