Breathtaking story-teller painting! Everything in this picture is so eloquent, that one does not need any description to understand the drama behind it! Brilliant historical masterpiece Nicole! v,f

I greatly appreciate your enthusiastic comment Giarda!

It let me vote again!~such a great and powerful work!

Thank you so much, Lenore! I greatly appreciate your high regard toward my work.

Its so tragical history and its reflecting greatly people sufferings in your painting, and its not dogs fault to hunt them, they just have trained for this...

Hi Jenny! you are perfectly right; those dogs have been trained. I thank you so much for your compassionate comment.

Returned to give this one another vote...a work of historical significance and power.

Thank you so much, Lenore. I greatly value your positive reception!

This Haitian Spartacus looks great in your painting, Nicole, and certainly this is a noble mission you took upon yourself: preserve memory in visual art! I wish I had the leisure and the will to do the same for my people...fav and v.

Ion, you really make me laugh, "Haitian Spartacus", LOL!! Yes, Ion, I do this with a passion, for, Haitian history is so rich. Thank you so much, Ion, for your words of appreciation, and the V/F.

Amazing dynamic painting. You created a great composition that tells the story well. f/v

Welcome to my site, Cori! I thank you so much for your great words of appreciation.

Once the world econmy changes I will consider buying a painting from Nicole. What an original painter. She puts everything into it. Composition, colour textures its all there, wonderful. I will try and copy some of her ideas in my photography.

Welcome to her site, David! She will be pleased for you to have one of her paintings. She thanks you for your very positive comment.

Came back to vote for this one again. This is so fierce and ferocious! What a story to tell. Excellent!

Hi, Lenore! you are always welcome! thank you so much!

very interesting and wonderful composition ..my fave

Thank you, Negoud, for your nice words of appreciation.

Nicole I learn so much from your wonderful paintings and detailed narratives. "Le Negre Marron" a symbol of freedom and reminder of the past could not be destroyed. Not even by a earthquake. v/f

Very powerful and positive comment, Bob. Thank you so much.

Nicole, a beautiful and important contribution to all of our understanding of the history of this terrible period in world history...at a time when there is so much human trafficking in the world, it is wise of us to remember the struggle of others, black and white, and to do all in our personal power to see that we live in a world safe from exploitation of any kind, religious, political, economical, sexual or any form that steals humanity and freedom from the human race..."no man is an island..."

Welcome to my site, David. I thank you very much!

Nicole, you have a rich, beautiful and powerful portfolio. I want to honor the truth and courage in this story and the story-telling. An excellent work, Bravo!

Welcome to my site, Mars! I thank you very much!!!

Nicole~Although featured in Our World Gallery, I didn't comment at the time. This is such a powerful work that speaks to Haitian history, but also of course, the United States. For those of Anglo-Saxon ancestry with any sense of social justice, this hits deep into our collective guilt. Guilt is only useful to teach lessons. It's a lesson worth learning. Vote & fave.

Very well said, Lenore. Thank you so much. Peace.

Very Remarkable Nicole. I love Everything on this Piece.

Welcome to my site, Corey. Thank you very much!

What a powerful expression of a history so cruel and tragic that we of the modern world can scarcely believe it -- but we know it is true from countless accounts passed down to us. Not only that, the scars of these atrocities are still seared into our souls. Whether decended from slave-owners or slaves (or both, as I am) the truth of past crimes will never be forgotten. This painting is a strong and compelling testament to that.

Very well said, Dawn. Thank you, very very much. Peace...

Wow, what an impressive historical work you created, Jean! Wonderful! I do appreciate your nice comment on my "Autumn Landscape", thank you so much!!

Thank you very much, Xueling.
