"This and the companion print of the sunrise at the same location will be available from my New York gallery, Scholten Japanese Art, soon, and you can pre-order specific edition numbers in advance. Cool surfer dude Troy M. was the model, and if you look closely at the detail of his figure, you’ll notice that both this moon version and the sunrise version have different shadow blocks to highlight the different light effects of the two atmospheres. Also of course, this version has the beautiful reflection of the moon on the surface of the ocean and the wet sand, and as it was soon before dawn, the sky is a lighter blue than the previous moon prints in the Black’s Beach series".
