As expected, a couple of days out of town and away from the studio brought everything to the "just right" stage of dryness. I rolled in last night and collapsed into bed, and this morning I rolled straight out of bed and over to the press for a session of "pajama printing." (That's printing which happens before I have breakfast or change out of my jammies.)
The final dark is subtle... one more reason why it was such a headache to get a decent photo of the image. The irony is that my phone camera did a better job with the blues than my "good" camera did, but I think after some tweaking I got it close.

This piece is destined for the National Western Club Show, in conjunction with the Coors Western Art Show in January. It will be my first time exhibiting at this prestigious event, and I'm looking forward to connecting with artist friends new and old, as well as new collectors.
I need to get back to the "yellow" piece that I started last week, but first I need to take a little break and catch up with all the tasks that have been neglected while I tamed this particular beast. You know, things like bill-paying and grocery-buying and laundry-washing.
But maybe I'm first going to try nap-taking. I think I'm due.
