AMERICAN GOTHIC II / AKA LIKE A FISH NEEDS A BICYCLE
This painting is inspired, of course, by Grant Woods' famous “American Gothic”. I had the idea for this painting for a long time before I actually put it on canvas. I wasn’t sure I wanted to copy another artist’s work - even with the added whimsy. Working on this piece forced me to closely examine Wood’s work and increased my respect for the artist’s skill.
Oil on canvas, 32x25 in floating frame. $1250
