Sweet Revenge

Sweet Revenge
Scorpion snack
Back Yard
My 15 year old son Israel was stung by a scorpion that was on his pillow this morning.
It stung him in his lower back. Thank God he's doing fine but I was shaken up.
This mornings shenanigans inspired this new painting. I'm calling it Sweet Revenge ;-)
Watercolor & Acrylic ink on hand made Twinrocker paper. 6" x 8".

Hi Geninne, I got 2 beautiful yards of Alegria, blue birds on blue in the mail today. It is just gorgeous! Thank you for sharing your talents with the world.

Oh my goodness! So glad to hear your son is doing fine. I would have totally freaked.

Just look at that beautiful painting…talk about "when life gives you lemons…" Sending caring thoughts from one mom to another. :)

Glad to hear he is doing OK! Wow! Sweet revenge is right! ;-) I'd never want to experience a scorpion bite, or even be within reach of getting bitten!

I like your illustration! That purple paper is lovely too!

Love the bougainvillea. It reminds me of my childhood. Ours grew so tall and huge, draping over an entire wall and it had the same exact fushia color as what you have on the picture. It was sad that we had to move without it. Thanks for sharing a lot of beautiful pictures with us!

We sometimes find scorpions in our vacation home in NW Phoenix - I know it comes with living on the edge of the desert but it doesn't mean I have to like them! I love your new picture and glad to hear your son is OK!

To my eye, there's something small, lovely and fierce with that little bird in this picture. She's beautiful and wonderfully made, compared with the ugly scorpion.

I think it's a wonderful depiction of how we mothers defend our children against all harm - bravo!

Hola Geninne,
Que susto! Sofia y yo nos alegramos de que Israel este bien. Por cierto, que talento! Poder sacar arte de una situación como esta, wow! al final el escorpión tuvo suerte, se hizo famoso en un instante y se perpetuo en esta hermosa pintura que has creado. Un abrazo y mucha salud para Israel.

Crikey! That would have been scary for the young fella! Just as frightening for you, I see. I'm sure that Sweet Revenge has a super sharp beak! Thank you for sharing these beauties with us.

Qué impresión! Qué bueno que ya esté bien, dicen que las plantas y las flores de lavanda los espantan, para que pongas muchas! Se dan bien en climas secos. Saludos!

Oh goodness! Glad he's doing ok. The art that came from your experience is beautiful. At least something good came out of it. I said a prayer for Israel.

Just gorgeous colors! So nice that you turned a negative experience into a positive thing by painting! May I ask if you water colored the twin rocker paper first in purple to get that base color?

Love your work Genine. The more I see what you do, the more I am inspired to do something creative myself.

Geanine, dicen que poniendo pequeños recipientes con lavanda fresca en los lugares por donde podrían entrar, los escorpiones se espantan ya que no soportan ese olor. Es una manera agradable de mantenerlos alejados, inocua para el ser humano. Control ecológico de plagas.
Me alegra que a tu niño le esté yendo bien.
Un abrazo.

I love the colors and how they all blend together. The birds feet have to hurt standing on top of the cactus catching the scorpion. The butterfly perched above the bird makes the picture.
