Nature’s Energy New Blues Paintings at GroveHouse Gallery

Just back from hanging my ‘wall’ as featured artist for the month of October at GroveHouse Gallery in Coconut Grove, FL.

Tomorrow night is the monthly Coconut Grove Art Walk and I can feel it is going to be an exciting one! So many galleries and artists participating, even a ballet performance, magicians, and of course food and wine will be everywhere. Hope to see you at the opening reception at GroveHouse Gallery on the Promenade next to Comedy Club – starts at 7 pm, Sat. Oct 2!

Please do comment on the new mixed media paintings. I don’t paint nearly as often as I’d like to, but I sure did enjoy every minute of creating these 🙂 All paintings are for sale. Visit them at the gallery or contact me: debra@debracortese.com

Fuschia Orchid Cascades

 Fuschia Orchid Cascade Nature's Energy Reflections

Fuschia Orchid Cascades is one of my newest Nature’s Energy Artworks. As usual, I was most inspired by this year’s International Orchid Festival at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden. As soon as I saw this particular prize-winning orchid display I was thinking fabric design. Wouldn’t it feel beautiful to wear a flowing, silk fabric dress with these vibrant colors and contrasts?! 
Don’t have the dress fabric available…yet (if you have a source, please let me know?).

Two versions of this artwork are now available as 18×12 inch, handsigned, fine art prints, or you can order it in a custom size on fine art paper or canvas and bring the magic of Nature’s Energy right into your home or office to enjoy it everyday! Call me at 305-665-2528 or email me at: debra@debracortese for size and framing options and pricing.
You can see a larger image here.
