American Gothic NOW by EddieTheYeti American Gothic NOW by EddieTheYeti
UPDATE:

This piece is being featured on The History Channel's "Larry the Cable Guy - Only in America". I will post when I find out when the episode will air. I have signed the release papers for it already.

I have been accepted to exhibit in the Colorado Gothic Arts Festival in May of this year. I wanted to do a special piece for this show and I began thinking about the changing meaning of the word "Gothic" over the years in America. I thought about Grant Wood's work "American Gothic" in the context of today's meaning of the word "Gothic". I had a mental flash that became this pencil work. I find at least a few layers of humor in it. I hope you enjoy it too! Thank you Grant!

I saved this a long time ago on my computer because I thought it was hilarious.

How was it that I did not fav it????

I think its because its when I first joined dA and did not know how to fav.

anyway, I still love it, and I still love you and I think you are absolutely amazing.

The most difficult thing to do is to process grief. (Rage is easy to process. Just difficult to clean up if it gets out of hand).

So I love your work. I have grief to process, and you do it for me beautifully.

Let kindness and the insane beauty of nature wash over your soul from time to time. That is the only place I have found true piece.

Thank God for the Rockies and the West. That is where my heart finds a home and solace.

In the meantime, I'll take my green grassy acres and the wide Texas skies as my healing ground.

much much love and gratitude
