Looking through Todd’s work
His etchings are super realistic and detailed. Everywhere I look is filled with a meaningful mark within his etching. The use of color also adds a dimension of time and a sense of moodiness. Some of the etchings feel cold and sad yet are stinking all at once. I find the etching of the moon the most etheric. The subtle detail of the tiny dots on the plate creates such a contrast with the start black and the bright white moon.

The way he describes his paintings are so wonderous and poetic. While reading the beginning of the article was simple and as I got further, I felt like there were two different people. I think the way he writes is wonderous. Some of the word choices adds a layer of depth into what he’s trying to explain. I find it incredibly nice to read with the sprinkle of understanding the connection with the land.
The Power of Great Paintings
The way this guy writes sounds super excited about the paintings! Todd writes in a descriptive way. Essentially like a creative writer and not necessarily what I would expect as a journalist. He’s so cute with the way he describes the canvas to the contours of the peach. I want to travel back in time just to go to this exhibit. Usually, paintings can be boring, but I think having him as a guide through the museum would take looking at these old paintings to another wolrd.
