American Gothic Spoofing

For so long, I have been in love with the famous American Gothic painting by Grant Wood. 
I just love the moody mystery behind the portrait. 
But it is funny the real story behind the portrait. 
Since I love the painting, I create my own spoofs of it often.

For our school office to hang in honor of Buzz, the yellow jacket (our mascot)

I also teach my art students about the painting every year and have my 6th graders do a spoof of the painting. Here are some examples...
