A humorous hand-varnished canvas on board by lovable cow artist Caroline Shotton.
This quirky piece is based on the classic ‘American Gothic’ painting by Grant Wood. The original was painted in 1930, after Grant noticed the Dibble House, a small white house built in the Carpenter Gothic architectural style, whilst driving in Iowa, America.
Caroline says: “Grant’s painting has a slightly dark feeling about it, so capturing the facial expressions without it looking miserable was quite tricky. I hope I’ve found the balance between recreating the original feel and adding a touch of humour.”
