You've heard me talk about my Nut Ball Dad (Totally Meant in a Good Way) but I rarely write about my maternal grandfather, George. He was a sweet but ornery man. He pretended to be hard of hearing so he didn't have to listen to my Grandmother!
In their living room hung a huge fake picture of American Gothic. George insisted that it was a picture of his parents in Iowa. I did ask him why he didn't look anything like is parents? Well, Carol Ann I am bald! I never thought much about it until I took my first art class and discovered it was famous.
Because George said it was his parents I always assumed that the couple were husband and wife. I didn't realize there was some supposition that it was a father and daughter. It turns out they are the painter"s sister and dentist. You can read the whole story HEREor Click the Pic.
