I have over the years, keep the step by step process of a print, the first proof, 2nd proof, to the final proof or bon a tier (ready to print). The artist often pulls a percentage of prints under A/P artist proofs. These prints are kept by the artist, given as gifts, sold to special collectors. Then the true edition is pulled, a limited number of these prints can be used to Tint or PINX (latin, to paint) hand color. The edition is numbered, titled and signed by the artist. I have tried to keep at least one copy of any print that I have pulled. Some of the proofs are pretty boring so not going to post them but here are a few extras that I found and will post a new one each day on the ART Off The Wall Album on FB.
Have I mentioned that I post a different image some prints, some pastels or other originals on Instagram that I don't share. I don't get one posted everyday but try to get something up a couple times a week.
Finding these little treasurers has made packing a little more fun.
