image of dark glossy water with bright yellowy-green lily-pads floating on the top. some of them are partially submerged and you can see their murky shapes and light in the dark ash color of the water.

In the Candleroom at Saint Bartholomew’s on New Year’s Eve


|
it is dusk: we see water, deep maroon with black shadows crested on the underside of shelled waves,. a boat lit up with gold lights and steaming smoke into the mauve-dusky sky casts bands of gold and glittering lights on the path of the water, leaves a dark shadow behind it. the shore is a black band of shadows.

Woman Holding a Balance


|
Image of a house in the dead of night. The house sits in the lower left half of the frame and looks like a cut-out from black paper, lit up only by purple light coming from the windows and doors. To the left is an enormous tree shrouded in shadows. A low cloud hangs near the right side sky of the frame. Above the house is a vast sweep of stars on the gray sky.

image of a woman standing with her back to the camera, in front of a bicycle. she is visible from the waist up. in front of her is a long river, and the opposite bank is full of buildings for a city. a man on a bike is in the far right distance, blurred out. the woman is lit up by a patch of golden light in an otherwise greenish blue image of dusk.
