@johntatulliart I saw it as a cloak... until @Lee-White pointed out the hill theory... then it changed my whole outlook on your piece and on life itself... nothing is what it seems haha.
Just realized another solution might be to remove the candles altogether, and give everyone lit pumpkins, light coming up from a pumpkin would be like a flashlight under their faces, the creepiest kind of light. Just a thought...
@Mariana-Campos Don't let this piece fool you! I struggle with color too! Usually I'm too heavy handed.
