Description: Couple in birch grove

Comment: For Pruett Carter, so much of his success in illustration hinges on his abilities to consolidate what's likely a complex story into a single interaction between two people. Here, we don't care what's going on beyond the birch trees, he's set that up as almost a curtain to get us focussed on the two characters.
