The Pois Thrashers


The Pois Thrashers, 24×36″ oil on board, framed by the artist.

The original is sold. Available as Giclees (5) and APs (5)

Part of the Quench Project, this painting is a depiction of a common scene in the mountains of Jacmel, in the south of Haiti.  These subsistence farmers are practicing an ancient art, very similar to the rice thrashing the enslaved African-Americans practiced two centuries ago in our country.  Madame Rolande, featured, is the mother of Renauld, who gave me an impromptu tour of the farm and the nearby village.  Madame Rolande’s hands, the focal point of the painting, are worn with work and dedication to her mission.
