Orange and Purple Abstract Art Painting by Cortney North

Printer update (hint: old printer didn’t make it) and the Enneagram (hint: this is taking over the world)

This week I am excited to announce I am the owner of a working printer. It is a new printer since my former printer decided it was ‘Time’ and went to the big printer graveyard in the sky. Or the electronics recycling warehouse graveyard. Whichever. May you RIP, Well-used Electronic.

Turquoise Waters Fine Art Print Close Up

New Prints in Shop: “Turquoise Waters” and “Autumn Impression”

I completed these paintings a number of years ago, back in 2013 to be exact. I still enjoy viewing them, so they made the cut for prints that would go up on the Etsy shop. “Turquoise Waters” is a style that brings me a lot of happiness. It is soothing

‘Through the Roses’, my newest print, and some bright interiors

My newest print: Here’s what I was working on last week and into the weekend. I had so much fun painting this design. It helped that the sun, for the most part, was shining and the birds were singing. Now that the painting is complete and I’ve spent a few

Here are some of the newest prints available in my shop! With this print, I see myself standing under a trellis and looking out into the sky beyond. The wind is blowing the flowers and sunlight dapples the petals. It’s a calming scene to me and I like that quality

In the Shop: New Prints!

Last week I was able to post three new prints in both of my shops. Two were a series and one was a fall inspired piece. The “Cheerful Garden’ Series is much more bright and colorful than many of my other prints. I’m pretty sure I was seeing summer come

A few more paintings
