Acrylic paint on canvas.

Here is another painting for my upcoming show in Miami, Florida. The size is larger than the pieces on paper that I have been sharing so far. I will try to take a picture of myself next to it so I can post it here or here.

About the symbolic meaning of beetles Avia Venefica says:

Beetles speak to us of groundedness. They move with bellies always close to the earth, and so their wisdom is sacred and deep.  They are connected to the core of earth, and so they are rooted in their knowledge about the way of life and nature.

Beetles also talk to us about steady, gradual progress.  Observing them, they do nothing without pragmatic, methodical movement.

Beetles impart messages such as:

  • “Get to the root of your desire”
  • “Be practical in your expectations of progress”
  • “Find stability in simplicity”
  • “Anchor yourself in honest, true, natural ways”

Beetles also remind us of the simple things in life, and point our attention to the magic in the small.
