Ahhhhhh ... relief!

So looking forward to this; sunrise strolls by turquoise waters followed by breakfasts of fresh French pastries on a deck among palm trees in sultry temperatures and best of all ....  NO SNOW!

Nose to the grindstone

Under pressure, again.
Right now I'm feeling really good about getting all of my plates printed for the "Print Cubed" portfolio. Three separate plates, for an edition of forty, is nothing to sneeze at and I knew it would take a fair amount of time to get all of the printing completed. It was just a matter of allocating studio time and staying focused. The good news is that the new ink matched perfectly to what I had previously printed.

The next task will be to piece the three separate prints together. This afternoon, I actually got a dozen prints assembled and they're sitting on the press bed weighed down with my antique irons.

Even though I still have a lot to do before I can truly call this edition complete (finish piecing together the remaining prints, adding machine stitching, water-coloring areas, folding, and trimming), it feels good to have all of the printing done.  For now, I'll just let the rest of the edition hang on the line and dry.
