Italian Gothic
The story on this piece is that two gentlemen farmers who lived on adjacent farms in the Italian countryside fell in love.  One was married to a woman and the other was not.  They lived on their farms until their deaths.  (You can add your own details.)  Hence, the name, Italian Gothic!  I was thinking about placing a pitchfork in the collage for awhile and decided to leave it out!  American Gothic already has that prop!

Babaji honors the film Bend It Like Beckham.  I just love that film and can not tell you how many times I have watched it.  My Babaji is different than the one in the film, but I can imagine the respect he would command.

Congratulations John. Both of these pieces are beautiful, unique and very compelling. They really have a story to tell. Wish I could be there to celebrate with you!
