a black velvet take on Grant Wood’s American Gothic. by Gil Corral, 2013
manoman. this is so fabulously awesome. And on its way to its new home. or actually, one stop before that. on its way to the home of the lovely couple that commissioned it as a wedding gift to give their friends. we’re all looking forward to the gift giving moment!
and with a couple more velvet commissions in the works, it feels like a gloriously velvety time indeed. so to c e l e b r a t e velvet appreciation, in a collision of high ability and low art, of a respectful and thoughtful execution on the tongue-in-cheek medium, let’s have a sale to make way for the fresh work in progress.
yes, LETS! the new roll of velvet will arrive in a couple weeks. make way for ducklings! We’ll post the in stock items on gilcorral.com for some rockin sale prices. (commissionable pieces, or examples of ones that have already found homes won’t have a sale pricing – and the sale will not be available via gil’s etsy site.)
check it out! spread the word!
and if you’ve had something in mind you’d like to see – or are thinking ahead to a custom holiday gift (a beloved pet’s portrait? a character from a favorite childhood story?) drop a line. let’s get our velvet on.
