“Like it’s common name, these beetles glisten and shine like mini jewels. I remember as a kid in the Meekatharra outdoor roller skating rink we used to pick these beetles up and put them on our jumpers where they would stay like brooches as we skated around the yard. While I have normally used birds as a focal point in my floral paintings, I thought that these little guys were cute enough to be a feature in this one.” Helen Ansell
