New Addition To The Studio–A Bigger Press!

I didn’t get a chance to post anything new on my blog yesterday, because I was driving to and from Bloomington, IN to pick up a new press.

The new press takes paper 20” wide.  I don’t have a pan large enough, so for now, I’m using my bathtub to soak the paper.

I’m not used to working so large; bigger monotypes force me to approach the artwork differently…I’m able to put much more detail into the work

Handling the plate and paper are a new challenge, but I think I’m going to like living large…

Once I figured out how to line the paper up and get it through the press, the print looks great!
