I love the first impression on a fresh sheet of paper. The moisture content of a new sheet of paper is more even than it will be for the rest of the run, the fibers haven't been smooshed by the baren yet, and the first impression is wonderfully textured. I decided to start this print similar to the way I started the Let Go print, with a light gray on the edges. So begins a new print.
The beginning is the most important part of the work. PLATO
