Bing and Beetles

Dorcus tanakai (large) (2)

While looking through some of my paintings to maybe post, I found this pair.  I had forgotten the little details about this species, so I Binged  Dorcus tanakai, and to my surprise my painting popped up as the first image in the Bing image search.  I had originally posted it on Flickr a while back and forgot.  Okay, I know, cheap thrill but a small one nonetheless.

Enough about me, this beetle pair, dorsal and ventral (back and belly) views, were painted with acrylics on canvas.

  1. Your work is incredible! Do your search on somebody else’s computer and see if you pop up. A friend and I did that a while back. Got entirely different search results. For whatever reason the search engines now give u what it thinks u want and not necessarily what u r searching for. For example I was searching on France Bellville and got a lot of ancestry hits because I have been on ancestry lately. I really wanted the sketch artist. It’s the same thing that pops ads up that google thinks you are interested in buying from. I get a lot of cheap joes. Always annoying! Lol.

    I went to Canada on my honeymoon – the reason – I wanted to go to the Insectarium in Montreal (I know, my husband should have sprinted in the opposite direction – long ago! 😉 )
