Night trees, Art Young

From Art Young's diary:

"… Any night I could walk or ride along the road and see interesting silhouettes made by tree forms, many of them so clearly defined as to need to improvement on my part."

"… I enjoyed hunting for tree pictures against the light of the sky or thrown into relief by the glare of automobiles, and drawing them the next day. It seemed to me that this silhouette handling of trees at night had never before been done by an artist."
