I  need a better photo of the goat. I finished after dark and had it hold it up outside to get a shot. It looks like my “selfie as a goat”

This is a Wildfire inspired print, a childhood memory of a really bad song. Someone really needs to do a remix of this.

Capricorn Goat Fish

I am doing an early release of the print, because today is my friend Audra’s birthday. In celebration of her birthday I carved a Capricorn Goat Fish, making one print extra special  with 6 bedazzled rhinestones. Maybe by the end of the day I will add another 8, one on each star. Happy Birthday Audra!

This Capricorn print is included in the 30 x 30, but instead of rhinestone each print will have silver glitter on the stars. I need to wait for the ink to dry before applying the glitter. You can take a chance and grab one up now, or tomorrow I will update the photo with glitter!!!! Here is a close up of the goat head with two rhinestones.

Hummingbird coming your way, Is it Spring? 11 of 30

Blue Hummingbird

To keep it honest, I printed this three days before I launched 30/30, making it sort of a cheat, but the great news is they are dry and can ship Monday morning.

When I can, during the week, I like to carve one block ahead in case I have other events in my life to participate in. This weekend I had a ski lesson and a snowshoe race, on two separate days, each one was 100 miles of travel. That travel seriously cuts into carving and printing time. But that means tomorrow it will be a real print extravaganza from 8am to 8pm, printing, carving, printing more, packaging and shipping them off to you!

Framed Hummingbird

Framed Hummingbird

The image is still 4″ x 6″ linoleum block printed but the paper is slightly smaller 6.5″ x 9″ instead of 8″ x 10″ It is still an edition of 10. It is printed onto German Etch paper which is super rich and heavy.

Print comes unmatted and unframed, picture is framed work is only an example.

Each print is hand printed by the artist, me, Hilary Lorenz in my studio in New Mexico. Each morning I carve a new animal into my linoleum and print never more than 10. I make these cleaver and fun prints available to you on a daily basis through January 31, 2015, This is print #11. And who knows maybe I will extend it!

Horse of Course, Print 5 out of 30

30 prints 30 days, Small Print Store

horse_framedIs this really only day 5 of 30? I am working my tail off and I am just getting started!  I was up past midnight packaging up prints, at the post office bright and early, then back home carving and printing so that I have time run before  4pm when it begins to get dark.

I am very excited to present you with a horse. Make fun of me all you want but today, according to Astrologer Susan Blair Hunt of Santa Fe, my spirit animal of the week is a Horse. What is the significance of a horse you ask? You can read all about it at Shamanismjourney, but the part that most resonates with me is, “People with Horse as power animal are fiercely independent and have little tolerance for anything or anyone that limits their free expression. They give us the safety of speed and the promise of adventure.”  So this week I am embracing my inner horse.

Horse Spirit Animal

Horse Spirit Animal

I always jokes that I was a horse in a former life, or perhaps a pack mule, as I can be incredibly stubborn with endless perseverance, especially when it comes to physical demand.

Today you get a horse for your 4″ x 6″ image printed onto 8″ x 10″ paper. In the edition of 10, you can get it at Etsy, It is only day 5, of my 30 prints in 30 days project, 25 more to go!

Also for those of you ordering multiple prints, please send me a message so that I can adjust the postage before you purchase. You do not need to add it in twice!
