The Beetle

This work is styled mostly on Native American rock art,
which has long been one of my major influences. As one
will note by the date, 1978, this is one of my early works.

In 1973 I began a novel, entitled, 'Rainbeetle,' which
expressed my interests in folklore, mythology, etc. This
work is thus one of many beetle images that I have
created over the years.
