Pregnant Gerbil on Olive Green background
Isn’t it cute? A pregnant gerbil on an olive green background. I really don’t know if the gerbil is pregnant, but in the 4th grade when Mrs. Seaver offered her students, “gerbil couples” to take home, I got mine and soon my two gerbils populated into about 200 in record time.

It was very entertaining for a while having all these gerbils. Luckily I always worked, even in 4th grade, so that I could get new aquariums keep my expanding family in. It was really fun at first, then after 100 or so, it was not so fun. But I am still fond of the little critters.

You will find 10 of these prints available on Stonetrigger Press Etsy along with two pages of additional prints. Each weekend I made a new print, always on 8″ x 10″ Rives BFK, and always ready by 8pm EST.
This is it, the last two days of my exhibition at Wave Hill and at the Printmaking Center of New Jersey. I will be at Wave Hill on Sunday from noon to 4, please stop by to say “hello.” After that I am packing up and headed out west for my next project. I have to say, it has been a grant experience!

Yesterday I finished the installation of Nomadic Geography, my “interdisciplinary arts project that visually translates the visceral experience of trekking remote landscapes into linoleum block prints, drawings, and room-size installations.” That is my official one sentence description. I will be doing a talk on November 16 at 1:30, but you are welcome to visit the Garden and Cultural Center any day of the week, exception Monday. Post your one sentence description here, or better yet, tweet it!

Wow, two out of three days complete as I, along with my highly motivated, brilliant and faithful helpers, work on my Wave Hill Exhibition install. I have been waiting all year from this and now it is in high wear and looking amazing. Check it out so far, it opens October 18, 2018 with a talk/reception November 16. Here are two of the four walls in progress.

“Shine On” watercolor and collage 10″ x 14″
Spirit animal of the week? That’s right, it is the firefly. This is watercolor collage drawing #20, it will be sent to the framers to meet the other 19 tomorrow. It is a real wacky one, the fireflies are hand colored linoleum block prints slightly raised off the surface of the paper as it they are flying. Super Cool! These fireflies are here to remind you to, “shine your light.”
Two pieces have already sold from my studio. They will still be in the exhibition for all to see. These smart collectors knew to buy one now because once at the gallery with the commissions added on, the price rises, and then only climb for there. So if you even think you might want one, talk to me now. firstname.lastname@example.org
8′ x 6′ Ink drawing of Lean-to by Hilary Lorenz
My lean-to ink drawing is on it’s way to completion. This will be going into my exhibition at Wave Hill in October. It is big, about 8 feet long and I hope to have it done in the next couple of days. On Friday I shipped all 19 drawings (the of which are already sold!) to the framer. I have the best framing in the world, Rabbet Art Gallery in New Brunswick, NJ. Dot, always takes great care of my artwork. I went to a few framers in Santa Fe, but I decided to keep loyal to Rabbet. I am completely confident that they will frame it and have it waiting for me at the Gallery at Pioneer Bluffs when I get there on October 2.
I had the chance to hike and run last weekend. A friend and I went to Chicoma Mountain, highest peak in the Jemez Mountains, no trail and a 26 mile forest road to drive in on made it a great adventure. The highlight of the day was seeing an Elk. Funny thing is, the prior week an Elk was my spirit animal. The day before the hike I went on a run along the Rio Grande Gorge from Pillar to the Taos Bridge, stopped 3 miles short of the bridge. I ended with 16 miles, but it was a rough run. It should have been easy but with all the direct sunlight it was just too hot for me.
Today everything is bright and beautiful here in Abiquiu, NM, three more weeks and I start my drive east for all these shows. Until then, you will find me in my studio.
