Lights in Motion 100x9 is an abstraction of moving Christmas Tree lights, taken from a taxi passing a big lit Christmas Tree at Lincoln Center in NYC. In this version of the image (100x9) the lights have been tinted a pale green color, with some of them pushed to black and the background has been reduced to gray, showing no detail of the background. And the image was rotated 90 degrees so the movement is in a downward direction and is intended to seem like sleet on a wintery day. This print is #1/3
