Small Paintings New Designs

Orange Flower acrylic painting by Debra CorteseSince I’ve recently packed up my life’s belongings and made the move from Miami back to my childhood hometown, Narrowsburg, NY, I’m rediscovering work that I had tucked away in folders, portfolios and boxes. I was delighted to rediscover a folder of small, 5×7 inch acrylic paintings, really exercises in painting, small studies feels like the correct term. And, with my more experienced designer eyes, now saw these previously not so special works as prime material for derivative works. The waves and swirls of color are perfect for patterns and repeat designs. I see home decor textiles, wrapping paper, kitchen and bath designs, handbags of course, and oh, so many possibilities!

I’ve scanned all of them into high resolution files and have already begun the re-design process. And, since I really no longer need to hold on to these colorful little gems, I’ve decided to post them here on my ebay page so an astute and appreciative new art collector will be able to add to or start a collection of original paintings that literally vibrate with joyful shapes and colors.

If you may be that collector, here is the link to all of the small works. Happy bidding and if you are really interested, contact meand make an offer. You will make my day just by appreciating the art 😉

 

High Noon Behind A Stunning Botero

Debra Cortese reading

Had a glorious south Florida day with my friends, Kim and Barbara at the 6th Annual International Orchid Festival at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden. 

 

Hard to imagine a better setting to catch up on reading Alyson Stanfield’s “I’d Rather Be In The Studio”( although definitely not the case here) Took a break from shooting orchids and couldn’t resist capturing this PR moment!

 

Back in the studio today, and much happier since getting out to enjoy my favorite inspirational place. More images coming soon of Botero’s, the orchid devas and new artworks.

Excited now to get back to creating more art!
