ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER " H "



Today is ABC Wednesday and the letter is " H ".
" H "
is for Haitian art. I bought both of these paintings when we were in Haiti several years ago.
I love the primitive style and the vivid colors.


This painting is by Jeremy. His artwork is the major way that he supports his family.
We brought him many brushes and tubes of oil paint so he could continue to make a living.
Go to Mrs. Nesbitts link on my sidebar to see what others have chosen for the letter " H ".

Haitian art! There's nothing like it. The first time I saw your blog was a post of photos from Haiti. I knew there was something special about you!

I have several painings, but none like these.

They may be primitive, but they are very appealing and beautiful!

Jay said...

Those are very attractive, aren't they? They have a childlike quality, and yet are quite sophisticated.

Those are wonderful paintings.

Abe said...

This art is nice to see. There are modern qualities about it too. Not as primitive as Grandma Moses, but to me more like the things you see in the Museum of Modern Art. Excellent post.
