The plate is done. Tomorrow, I will begin to print the edition of 100. While everyone else is out planting in their gardens, or seeing the lilacs at the Ewing Park Arboretum (always a big crowd there for Mother's Day), or hunting for morels, I will be in my basement studio, printing. It has been a long time since I printed such a large edition myself, but since I am in Iowa, I have to do it alone. In Venice, my long-time edition printer is Roberto Mazzetto at the Stamperia del Tintoretto. I hope to be able to print at least 30 impressions a day.
