Little white flowers surround the dark waters behind the farmhouse. The moons made them dance and entertain the shadows that surrounded the lake. I've grown to trust shadows. Usually, shadows meant you were in the green, where it's safe. Around these parts, nothing is more comforting than a dark forest. I watched the flowers dance for a good while. The liquid black waters rippled providing the applause. I whispered, " thank you." The Green Goddess made me blush once again with her beauty.

Dye used a long rectangle canvas. It mimicked the view we had from the farmhouse. The moon's light cut through the trees creating little strips of light along the marsh capturing the flowers perfectly. Dye used one of his mixtures to force the color to drip down along the textured black background. The drips allow the idea of reflection to become part of the abstraction. The moon was high, and there we were growing midnight.
