revel #2

This painting pretty much kicked my butt. I hadn't done a large
painting in so long I forgot how much work it is.  Well 2  1/2
weeks later I remembered!  How artists can work on paintings
for months and months is just a mystery to me.  By the end
of this one I didn't want to look at it anymore.  I like it alot now
though.  The struggle was worth it.  I joked that I should call this
"mardi gras gothic" but that seems a little gimicky to me and I
really didn't have the iconic painting by Grant Wood (see link) 
in mind when I started, so it became "revel #2.
