I love art! Just like a good poem, most art speaks to me in some way. Take Grant Wood's American Gothic for instance. Every time I look at this artist's work, I find a new story. Sometimes I think this is about the wife; other times I think it's about the husband. No matter what, though, I always find something in a work of art to talk about.
Today, I want you to think about the tone of Wood's American Gothic. If you don't know what tone is, take a few minutes to search that term. Writers, artists (or even a moms!) use tone everyday to evoke a feeling or emotion in their audiences. Please comment by telling me:
1. What's the tone of American Gothic? Tell me why you think that by using "textual evidence".
2. How does this TONE make you feel?
