Here is the first print that went through my press...a small copper plate etching called "Inner Child." I spent the whole rainy afternoon in my newly carved studio space, harmonizing loudly with Emmylou Harris ("Wrecking Ball" is one of my all-time favorite albums) while sorting out my system of water baths, inks and blotting paper. Made many prints. I think the press is dreamy. My cats however are very skeptical of the big scary machine and tiptoed nervously around the room.
"Frail my heart apart and play me a little Shady Grove..." she sang.
