Oil on Masonite
Haitian couples gather together for a night of dancing to music played by their village band.
These hand carved frames are made from hard oak trees grown in Haiti. They are made by frame makers, not the artist. Some frames take weeks to make, while others are carved while the painter is painting and are finished when the painting is done. This is done because the corners must fit. None of the paintings are the exact size. These frames are valued at $200 or more.
