Fighting Cocks

Watercolor. I don’t even bother to ask myself where some of these images come from. I’m just a vessel. I woke up one morning with something akin to this in my head and couldn’t do anything else properly until I got it on paper–so here it is. I really love it.

Perhaps it’s a comment on the strained (to put it mildly) relations between Haiti and the Dominican Republic while the real ones in charge–safely hidden away in the great house–look on laughing at the peons tearing each other to bits. A surprisingly good comparison of the Dominican Republic and Haiti is from Henry Louis Gates, Jr.’s Black in Latin America series on PBS.
