Joianne Bittle has an awesome job (Exhibition Assistant at the American Museum of Natural History) where she gets to paint, draw and make dioramas. Wow. But she’s also an accomplished artist in oil and wax, as these paintings attest. Her series of beetle paintings, A Royal Family, were the result of six years of life observation.
