Hello Lorflor Project Participants!! It’s been awhile, and even though I said I would be coming back with another Lorflor Project…well…now my projects are of a different nature. Black and white photography. It’s something I have been working at ever since I returned from London fall of 2014. Now that it’s picking up steam and starting to go places, I will be writing a monthly newsletter with updates on my work, as well as when prints will be available for purchase. All the insider scoop, you know.

If you would like to receive these newsletters, you can subscribe via my website:

Thank you so much for following along here and participating in my Lorflor Project I and II. Without them I wouldn’t have made it to London (the Go Fund Me campaign), and speaking of London…that’s exactly where I am now! Working on a black and white photo essay titled, LEAF. I will share more about this project in my upcoming newsletter.

You can also follow me on Instagram: @lorien_bnw

I hope you are doing well!

Coming Back

May 28, 2016 § 3 Comments

Hello Dear Participants,

The Lorflor Project is looking at a come back!

Interest in project has seen increased growth lately and so the planning for another series of Monday paintings is in the works. I hope this is good news!

In the meantime, the Etsy Shop is restocked with $15.00 prints of all the paintings. They are in editions of 50, and once they are gone, they are gone for good. Originals are also still for sale. You can see which paintings are available in the gallery.

I hope you all are well and that at least some of your dreams have come true in the recent years.

More updates to come!



That’s a Wrap!

September 12, 2013 § 2 Comments


Well folks! I can hardly believe it!! The Lorflor Project II wrapped up before I even knew it and now I find myself in London studying for a Postgraduate Diploma in Garden Design. These past few months have been such a rapid and hurried transition – it’s only now at this very moment, that I am realizing everything in my life has shifted around to what it is now. And it looks different. Which is a good thing.

I want to thank each of you for your support with The Lorflor Project I and II, to all who left titles and for those who simply enjoyed viewing the new paintings (almost) each week (when the projects were running). I began painting in the spring of 2011 to help me through a rough patch but didn’t know that over two years later I would end up with 69 original paintings which then turned into prints and cards with an Etsy Shop – followed by a very successful art show hosted at the best gallery in town (my beloved “L Street”) – and that to date – 33 of the original paintings have been sold! It’s really incredible to me, this small side-journey I have taken. To paint and produce an art show is a dream I’ve had for a long time and I am so grateful I have been able to fulfill it at this stage in my life. I am already looking forward to The Lorflor Project 3!!! Get your bio’s ready!

So the art show – yes there was an art show! It was awesome and I was so pleased with the turn out, the food and drink, the atmosphere, the presentation of the paintings and the biographies, and most of all – getting together with people who are very important to me and who have been supporting and rooting for me for a good while now!

While I am here in London, The Loflor Project will be on hold. If you are new to this blog, and want to be made aware when it starts back up again, please subscribe by clicking on the button on the righthand side of this page.

Thanks again and I look forward to seeing you all in 2015!

It Happened!

June 8, 2013 § 1 Comment

Last night was the opening reception for the 2nd Annual Summer Art Showcase at the Covey Center for the Arts! Many of my family members came to support me and we had a fun time watching and listening to people’s reactions to my work. That was definitely a favorite aspect of the evening. And with my little 6×6″ canvas paper – my paintings took the cake for the smallest pieces in the show!

The show runs until July 28th, so if you are in the Provo area – take a look! And you can vote for your favorite as there is a people’s choice award. Muse of a Headdress is on the main level and Arpeggio in Bloom is on the second level.

Thanks again to each one of you for making last night a reality for me! My first art show since High School!

See you Monday!!

A Bye-Week After All

March 18, 2013 § 4 Comments

Maybe it’s the jet lag – but here I sit among several 6×6″ painted canvas papers … nothing has surfaced. Just a strenuous effort repeated over and over again. I think it strange I can’t draw anything out since I have returned home. I was filled and overflowing from my two weeks spent in the London and Ireland. I had transcended.

But now, today – I feel so empty inside. Even exhausted. With nothing to pull from.

Maybe it’s the jet lag – or maybe it’s because I left my heart in Ireland.

See you next week –

The Lorflor Project II: Welcome to 2013!

January 7, 2013 § 1 Comment


Dear TLP Participants,

Greetings from Salt Lake City, Utah! It’s the first Monday of the year, which means new projects and new paintings. Here’s what’s happening with The Lorflor Project:

  • One 6×6″ acrylic painting will be posted each Monday.
  • A new page has been added to the blogsite: The Lorflor Project I: the first 50. This is an archival page for Part One and includes all submitted titles. Enjoy a scroll down memory lane.
  • Limited Edition Prints are now available for purchase. You can visit my Etsy shop to browse the inventory: Lorien Original Art
  • Once a title has been selected, the winner will receive their print within 2 weeks (instead of all at the end). The prints will also be available for purchase at this time as well.

I am excited for the new year and the next 50 paintings. I hope you are too. If you enjoy the project and the paintings, please share via your favorite social media avenue! There’s a share button at the bottom of each post (including this one) which gives a plethora of possibilities for sharing. Just click and take a pick.
