This is my submission to Art House Coop Sketchbook Project 2011. My subject, randomly chosen by the Art House Coop, is "Revenge," a subject about which I know very little. Over the course of the project I discovered that making my strong positive mark on the future is, in fact, the best revenge. Creating healthy, successful children turns out to do it for me - as does art making and providing art therapy to those in need.

  • The subject for my sketchbook was chosen at random for me by Art House Coop. It gave me much to think about.
  • The tan cover was first dyed black. Then the word was printed on paper, lifted with packing tape, water and acrylic medium. It was something of an experiment. Had to touch it up by hand with acrylic paint.
  • Printed on card stock and glued to the rather flimsy inner sketchbook paper.
  • Now I had to think of everything I know about “revenge.” It isn’t much.
  • Old stamps? Really?
  • Is that really all there is to it? I don’t know what that even means.
  • Okay, let’s go with that…
  • I started to have more fun with collage.
  • Badly printed old picture, dramatized with oil pastels, shiny red tape and thin gesso.
  • The Goddess is, of course, not sorry at all.
  • Good use of marbelled paper from my stash of too-pretty-to dispose-of stuff. I wrote in pencil and covered over the words with thin gesso.
  • Some beautiful paste paper, shapes and textures accented with oil pastels, marker and thin gesso.
  • Gelatin prints made in Essex, MA. Embellished with sewn-on button.
  • Lamprey attached to a fish. It reminds me of an unhealthy leechy person I don’t much like – and the one to whom she is constantly sucking up. Yuck. Maybe personal icky-ness is its own punishment.
  • Some things just pass into uselessness.
  • Paste paper, googly eyes reminded me of the lamprey on the previous page – the fish-face in close-up, perhaps.
  • Shape, color, texture. Stamps and another sewn-on button.
  • Cardboard buttons sewn on with Mylar strips. A camobutterfly with a cat-face to deter birds. Turtle with shell. Multiple styles of protection. The trickster approach to revenge.
  • And go forward
  • Over generations. In strength.
  • With power
  • As vultures feed
  • Symbols of my three children in this book reflect my paradise. All the revenge I need is in witnessing their success and knowing my positive influence on the world’s future.
