In case your computer can't pick up the subtle colors, the moon is pale yellow, and the moon glow and highlights are a very pale moonglow blue. In fact, that's what I call the formula. Moonglow Blue. It's also a good band name.
The areas where it looks like the ink is missing are areas where the board had wide grain. Although I like having the grain show in my work, I found it was distracting in the large field of black. I attempted to overload the block with black ink. However, when going through the press, the pressure would cause the paper to skate over that thick layer of ink. Ergo, I lost five on this edition. The good news, there are five beautiful pieces available at etsy.com (click on the press at the top of this page).
I put the print on the mantelpiece and my wife and I spent some time discussing it. Then we both got quiet. One yawned, then the other. I recommend this print for a bedroom, maybe a child's bedroom. Because I'm getting drowsy right now. Look at that happy, napping cat. Sooooo snuggguhwqdddddddbnzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
