The image is in honor of Sea Star Estate Farm and Vineyards here on Pender Island in British Columbia.  Their wines have won many gold and silver awards, several restaurants and resorts carry their wines, and the winery has been included in the 90+ Club by two of Canada's top wine critics.  Several released batches sell out before year end.  The owner, David Goudge also supports the local artists by having art shows and music during the summer months and promotes local businesses within the events.

A reduction print is a print using one print block what is carved repeatedly depending upon how many colors will be used. White areas in the print is the first to be carved out of the print block. The next lightest color will be printed, then those areas will be carved out and the next color printed. This process is repeated until the last color is printed.  Because of this reductive method of printing, the whole edition needs to be printed at once. At the end of the print run, the block is completely destroyed.
