A nicely executed drawing of twin birches at the edge of a creek or slough at sunset in winter or autumn, 10 1/2" by 13 1/2" (18 1/2" by 22 1/2" framed), signed at lower left by artist Dan Ryan and dated there 46. This is in the style of earlier decades stretching back to the turn of the century, leading me to believe that the artist was at a relatively advanced age at the time this was created. He handled the thin light very well and the drawing has a luminous quality. Note the reflection of the trunks in the shallow water, masterfully handled. Condition appears excellent (not examined out of frame).
