monday's muse

One of my favorite books is Pictorial Webser's. I love all of the old engravings. My favorite pages so far are those dedicated to beetles. Yeah, I am that weird girl who loves bugs. In fact, there is one that lives in my studio and I get delighted when this unknown beetle with red markings comes out to play. 
Maybe I am most smitten with this beetle since it holds the name of a gem stone. It isn't a girl thing, it is a jeweler thing.

Though I love this beetle, to me it is the classic shape and markings one thinks of then they picture a beetle.

This little guy has some great markings. They are all quite fascinating little jewels, especially when they are presented in color.

what is your muse this week?
