Celebrating 34,000 blog views in 2013

I was happily surprised a few days ago when I received my blog’s yearly report from WordPress. As stated in that report: “The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 34,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 13 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.”
Well, I know that many blogs out there get more visits by orders of magnitude, but for a site like this one, which deals with a very specialized subject matter without any content compromises… well, I have to say it is beyond my expectations. So thank you everyone out there for following, and I will keep providing my pictures, impressions and reflections as steadily as time permits.
To celebrate this achievement, here is a small gift for readers of the blog: you can dwonload a wallpaper-sized JPG file of one of my classic paintings: a portrait of Megantereon resting on a rock.

Megantereon-resting-low res

I did this painting back in the mid 1990’s, and in its simplicity it remains one of my favorites to this day. So if you want to decorate your desktop with this image from my olden, oil on canvas days, just follow this link:

Thanks again and I hope in 2014 we shatter by far the statisitcs of 2013!

    which species is this pic

    • Well, it is a reconstruction of Megantereon cultridens. But it could be Megantereon whitei just as well, because the differences between the 2 species are rather subtle features of the dentition, which would not clearly affect the external appearance. In life, there may have been dfifferences in the coat colour pattern, just as lions and tigers differ in colour while their skeletons are very similar.
