Picasso's Studio France Interior Painting by k Madison Moore






Picasso's Villa Veranda Studio
France 1961 - 1973

Painting with The Masters Series
Masters Studios Series

14 x 18 Interior Oil painting on Canvas

Visit My Portfolio Here


This is the second painting from my new Masters Studios Series.
This is such a special series for me because it is evolving my imagination
in so many directions that the ideas are just flowing. 

The best is that I can create any kind of scene that I think the Masters
would like. I am in keeping of places in which they lived and their studios
around the world during their lives for these paintings to add a "little'
reality!

This painting from my imagination is of his Veranda Studio that he
could have or should have had at his last place of residence in his 
farm house in Mougins  Southern France from 1961 -1973
until his death.
                                                 


I can imagine Pablo sitting in his Bentwood wicker Rocking Chair
at the end of a long day of working in this Vernada studio enjoying
some grapes and a glass of wine in a cozy pair of slippers.


Many of his paintings include chairs similar to his personal 
rocker that you see in so many of his studio paintings.
I thought the chair was a nice touch for this piece.







The paintings  that he was working on here are

Seated Woman 1927
Buste de Femme 1928
Jacqueline with Flowers 1939
Marie-Thérèse avec une guirlande, 1937
Courtesan woman with Necklace of Gems  1901


It was a lot of work creating the pebble stone and brick floor.
I wish all the little details would display better in a photo
because this is full of details which can certainly be more 
appreciated in hand. 

The flow of the vines on the old stone
wall against the tall arched windows just seems so fit for Picasso.
Many of his homes and studios had arches so he must have been fond
of them. I would love to have a room like this with tall windows, a dream!

The details are incredible and time consuming in this series but are so satisfying.
With this series we will travel to different countries and to imaginary spaces
The Masters. So fun!

This is also a nice size at 14 x 18. However if you would like a larger size just
email me for info.

Wind Beneath My Wings

Emotions in Color Series
14 x 16  Nude Oil Painting on Canvas


I was listening to Bette Midler singing
Wind Beneath My Wings while I was painting
this and I just went with the flow......tada!
Love when that happens.

Did you ever feel like you had the wind 
beneath your wings?

Enjoy! 

Did you ever know that you're my hero?
You're everything I wish I could be.
I could fly higher than an eagle,
For you are the wind beneath my wings.

Fly, fly, fly high against the sky,
So high I almost touch the sky.
Thank you, thank you,
Thank God for you, the wind beneath my wings.


See Bette perform this beautiful song Here

Welcome to My Jungle - Again

Inspired by Henri Rousseau

©kMadisonMooreFineArtInc.2013

Painting with The Masters
Art within Art Series

16 x 20 Interior Oil Painting on Canvas


I loved to do puzzels when I was a kid.
Once in awhile you would see a photo with
several hidden elements in it that you had to find.
I would not give up until I found every single one.

I really like Henri Rousseau and his funny animals
and jungle paintings. I did a lot of research on his
work for this composition. See if you can find the 35
animals that are in this painting. I had a blast painting
this one but with all of the details it was never ending.

Whom ever purchases this painting will get a diagram
of where to find all of the animals. This is a fun painting
for everyone, kids and adults and surely a great
conversation piece.
Have fun!


Here is the list:

White Bird
Squirrel
Robin Bird
Ape
Owl
Giraffe
Hummingbird
Indian Flute Woman
 3 Butterflies
3 Lions
4 Monkeys
Snake
2 Raccoons
Frog
Cobra
Bunny
2 Mice
Cat
2 Parrots
Ladybug
Ant
Caterpillar
Turtle
Big Bird
Dog

Henri Rousseau: Jungles in Paris was a visually exciting, important exhibition. A collaboration between the Tate Modern, the Musée d'Orsay and the Réunion des musées nationaux, in association with the National Gallery of Art, this was the first Rousseau retrospective in the United States since MoMA's show in 1985, which had a quite different agenda. That exhibition and its catalogue focused primarily on Rousseau's influence on vanguard artists of the twentieth century: he was the rebel, the outsider who represented purity and instinct. Now that Rousseau's place in the modernist pantheon has been secured, it seems, we can cast our nets more widely to consider other issues—of audience, politics, and history. In this most recent exhibition, selected by Christopher Green and Frances Morris with Claire Frèches-Thory, there were certainly references to Rousseau's modernism and to his outsider status—labels told us that certain works "caught the attention of the avant-garde"—yet the focus was not so much biography or canonization, but contextualization. What was being contextualized, specifically, was the artist's jungle paintings—the densely packed, enigmatic fantasies painted mostly between the years of 1904 and 1910. The jungle pictures were understood here not merely as one artist's quirky fixation, but as part of a broader cultural phenomenon, namely the French fascination with exoticism during the nation's colonial expansion.

Love painting the Blue Nudes. This is another

This is also a new size that I am going to start using.
Really nice and for those who have many of my
Blue Nude paintings this will be a nice addition to
the other sizes for your displays.

Painting of Interior Inspired by Matisse by k Madison Moore Matisse Studio Paris

Painting with The Masters
Art within Art Series
Masters Studio Paintings

14 x 18 Interior Oil Painting on Canvas

SOLD

Visit My Portfolio Here

I have been wanting to do paintings of studios that I image
for the Masters. This is the first. The fun part of this is that
these are interiors that I picture the Master would be painting
and creating in and not the real artists studios.

I did research several of the Masters studios. There are not
really many photos of their studios and the photos that I did find
were so dull and drab. Made me wonder how they created in such
depressing surroundings.

This is my studio for Matisse looking out over the colorful rooftops of
 France with the Eiffel tower in the back ground and a big flowering tree 
in front of the large window. He was born in France and worked most
of his life there. I can picture him here.

Hanging on the walls are my impression  of some of my very favorite 
Matisse paintings. I can image Matisse sitting in this comfy chair by the 
window or standing behind that easel painting this cute little lady.

Enjoy
Studio Matisse - Paris France

   







Initially trained as a lawyer, Matisse developed an interest in art only at age twenty-one. In 1891, he moved to Paris to study art and followed the traditional nineteenth-century academic path.

Discovering manifold artistic movements that coexisted or succeeded one another on the dynamic Parisian artistic scene, such as Neo Classicism, Realism, Impressionism and Neo-Ompressionism, he began to experiment with a diversity of styles, employing new kinds of brushwork, light, and composition to create his own pictorial language.

In the autumn of 1917, Matisse traveled to Nice in the south of France, and eventually settled there for the rest of his life. The years 1917–30 are known as his early Nice period, when his principal subject remained the female figure or an odalisque dressed in oriental costume or in various stages of undress, depicted as standing, seated, or reclining in a luxurious, exotic interior of Matisse's own creation. These paintings are infused with southern light, bright colors, and a profusion of decorative patterns. They emanate a hothouse atmosphere suggestive of a harem.


I found thee really great Photos Matisse when I was researching for this painting and wanted to share them.   Check them out Here

Effie Gray - Her Passionate Lives by k Madison Moore


 Effie Gray
Her Passionate Lives
©kMadisonMoore2014


Painting with The Masters
Art within At Series
14 x 18 Oil Painting of Interior on Canvas



A painting worth £50,000 has been found behind an old mattress in an attic where it had lain collecting dust for decades. 

The 45-year-old woman owner had been given the art work for her ninth birthday but had kept it in her loft for years and forgot about it until she put her house up for sale.

An eagle-eyed auctioneer who was valuing her belongings spotted the oil painting and was stunned when he realized it was by 19th century artist John Everett Millais.

I just love it when I find stories like this. I automatically have visions of a painting. In reading more of the details of her life 
(below) the composition just fell right in place within minutes. 
Here is the painting of Effie in the attic but on an easel instead of being hidden behind a mattress where it was found after many years.

I created the attic as a special private place where Effie may have gone to be alone and think , maybe read her love letters ( on the ottoman) or write some secrets in her diary (on the chair) or read a favorite book (on the chest). Keeping her company is her little bird friend. 
This is Effie's special place......or her spirit's.
Enjoy


A Special Gift for the Collector
that purchases this painting.

I am including this book by John Ruskin
and John Everette Millais
Effie
The Passionate Lives of Effie Gray




This is a short description of the story.
Now you will have the book and the entire
story to go with the painting.




Effie: The Passionate Lives of Effie Gray, John Ruskin and John Everett Millais


$70,000

Effie Gray, a beautiful and intelligent young socialite, rattled the foundations of England’s Victorian age. Married at nineteen to John Ruskin, the leading art critic of the time, she found herself trapped in a loveless, unconsummated union after Ruskin rejected her on their wedding night. On a trip to Scotland she met John Everett Millais, Ruskin’s protégé, and fell passionately in love with him. In a daring act, Effie left Ruskin, had their marriage annulled and entered into a long, happy marriage with Millais. Suzanne Fagence Cooper has gained exclusive access to Effie’s previously unseen letters and diaries to tell the complete story of this scandalous love triangle. In Cooper’s hands, this passionate love story also becomes an important new look at the work of both Ruskin and Millais with Effie emerging as a key figure in their artistic development. Effie is a heartbreakingly beautiful book about three lives passionately entwined with some of the greatest paintings of the pre-Raphaelite period.

I just received this beautiful email from one of my collectors and wanted to share. Thanks so much for your lovely words Heather.


Love this.  Tks for yr beautiful paintings. 

 You have a 'beautiful' mind, beautiful thoughts that you express in yr colourful  paintings - a  'Kaleidoscope' mind.   

You have  been blessed with a marvelous gift.   The carpet is beautiful, can feel the texture. Love the pensive look on the young girl's face on the decorative easel.   If we had bay windows in our  home. we would have gone in for a window seat just  like the one in yr painting.  The room looks so  warm and cosy. The suspended light from the timbered ceiling looks like something my ma-in-law bought from a palace in Palanpur, Western  region of India.    When we had  left India,  we had  left behind some of our stuff in our  company's (Not really our Company -'Coats Viyella') warehouse in Bangalore, amongst which were a couple of  pretty ceiling lights, like the one in yr painting -  they disappeared.   One of these , when in our possession, was suspended ,  over a bar which had wooden beams , to which my pa-in-law had suspended his  miniature collection of  bottles of liquor/liqueur.  It was a beautiful cobalt blue, slightly different in design, that looked like an inverted cup  with a metallic rim and a pretty metal appendage at the bottom , suspended by 4 metal chains to the middle of the bar area.  

Sorry, if I've gone on and on - yr painting evoked memories in me.

Best wishes and warm regards from Deepak and self,

God Bless!

Heather

The Presence of Peter
©kMadisonMooreFineArtInc.2014


12 x 16 Oil Painting of Interior on Canvas

I always love to pay homage to Peter Max.
He has the greatest bright colored palette
and of course you know by now I do as well.
I love to do my take on some of his elements.

I could spend hours enveloped in this this room.
Was Peter here before me?

Enjoy
The Presence of Peter


Peter Max- Magic of Vibrant Color Palette

Peteг Maҳ?s famous pop art has become an iconic representation of Americana. Hiѕ work has rɑnged widely in thеmes over the course of his long standing career. Throughout his career however, Peter Max?s artwork has remained identifiɑble by his signature usе of vibrant color. This sіgnature vibrant color palette creates a magіc touch easily noticed in any Peter Max work.

Waltz Dance Painting by k Madison Moore Waltz by The Light of The Moon





Waltz by The Light of The Moon
©kMadisonMoore2104


Dance Series

14 x 18 Dance Oil Painting on Canvas


I always loved the elegance and the flow of the waltz.
The first time I ever danced the waltz was at one of my 
cousins weddings. My very sweet Uncle Ed that I always
adored approached me, grabbed my hand and very quickly
 shuffled me to the dance floor and said, "Waltz with me"
I said, " I don't know how!" He said, "You will in a minute.
Let's go." He was right. It took only a minute and we
 were soon gliding around the entire dance floor. He was
so beautiful on his feet. I thank you Uncle Ed and miss you.
This is when I fell in love with The Waltz

Enjoy
Walt by The Light of The Moon



Waltz is a smooth progressive dance characterized by long, flowing movements, continuous turns, and rise & fall. Graceful and elegant, Waltz dancers glide around the floor almost effortlessly. The American style is punctuated with lavish open movements, underarm turns, and solo spins. 
The Waltz is the oldest of the ballroom dances dating from the middle of the Eighteenth Century. The German "Lander", a folk dance, is supposed to be the forerunner of the Waltz.
It is not known exactly when The Waltz was introduced to the United States. It was probably brought to New York and Philadelphia at about the same time, and by the middle of the Nineteenth Century was firmly established in United States society.
It came as a surprise to learn that the waltz was once considered to be a forbidden dance. It once held this reputation because partners were permitted to make contact. Such contact had never before been seen in the dance halls of Vienna.

His Kiss Inspired by Gustav Klimt by k Madison Moore





His Kiss
Inspired by The Kiss by Gustav Klimt
©kMadisonMoore2014


Painting with The Masters
Gold Leaf Series
24 x 24 Gold Leaf Oil Painting on Canvas

Sold



This is something that I have been wanting to do for a long
time. Although this painting was inspired by The Kiss by Klimt. It 
is a close up of the upper bodies and not of the full Klimt painting.
I changed all of the symbols, colors and almost everything else as to 
how I wanted to see it. I have painted  many inspirations from 
The Kiss as it is my very favorite of his works.

Working in Gold Leaf is a challenge but very interesting and fun.
I look forward to adding more to this series.

I have posted this piece on an angle so you can see how the light
reflects the gold leaf in the composition. 
The cape is gold leaf as well and some of the geometric blocks
 in his robe. I used gold leaf powder for the stars in the background 
and parts of the flowers in her dress. So hard to see in a photo. 
Really happy with the way it came together.

Enjoy

His Kiss!





The Kiss (Lovers) was painted by the Austrian  Symbolist painter Gustav Klimt between 1908 and 1909, the highpoint of his "Golden Period", when he painted a number of works in a similar gilded style. A perfect square, the canvas depicts a couple embracing, their bodies entwined in elaborate robes decorated in a style influenced by both linear constructs of the contemporary  Art Nouveau style and the organic forms of the earlier  Arts and Crafts movement. The work is composed of oil paint with applied layers of  gold leaf, an aspect that gives it its strikingly modern, yet evocative appearance.

The use of gold leaf recalls medieval "gold-ground" paintings and illuminated manuscripts, and earlier  mosaics and the spiral patterns in the clothes recall  Bronze Age art and the decorative tendrils seen in Western art since before classical times. The man's head ends very close to the top of the canvas, a departure from traditional Western canons that reflects the  influence of Japanese prints, as does the very simplified composition.

Sun and Life Homage to Frida Kahlo Interior Painting by k Madison Moore


Sun and Life - Homage to Frida Kahlo
©kMadisonMoore2014

Painting with The Masters
Art within Art Series
16 x 20 Interior Oil Painting on Canvas


This is a painting that I started some time ago and was recently reminded to finish it and I am so glad. I painted it in a larger format as I had a lot to say in this piece. I will be doing more larger paintings for many of my future works and will be using more elements an details. I loved using all these southwestern bright colors and of course mixing prints
The idea of all this fruit and juicy watermelons came from one of Frida’s paintings. She must have really loved watermelon as much as it is present in her work.  A couple of Margarita’s on a chilly afternoon in front of the fireplace, kicked off her boots and cuddled up.




I inserted Frida into my impression of her painting 
Sun and Life.
I found this such an interesting and deep felt painting by Frida and I am happy that I included it in this composition.
There is such beauty, yet a sadness to some of Frida’s works and she surely had a way of expressing her deepest feelings.
Obviously not being able to bear children was a constant in her life so is portrayed in many of her paintings.

"Sun and Life
As a result of a terrible bus accident at age 18, Frida was unable to have children. Her obsession with fertility was often the subject of her paintings. In this painting,  ( on the back wall  and below) the life-giving sun is surrounded by plants in the form of erupting male penises and female wombs. 
This painting also reveals Frida's sadness over her infertility as shown by the weeping sun and fetus.
There is such beauty, yet a sadness to some of Frida’s works and she surely had a way of  expressing her deepest feelings.
Obviously not being able to bear children was a constant in her life so is portrayed in many of her paintings.
Sun and Life by Frida Kahlo 1947




This is to give an idea of the approx. size with a floater frame.



Frida Kahlo de Rivera \ born Magdalena Carmen Frieda Kahlo y Calderón; July 6, 1907 – July 13, 1954) was a  Mexican painters who is best known for her self-portraits.
Kahlo's life began and ended in Mexico City, in her home known as the Blue House. She gave her birth date as July 7, 1910, but her birth certificate shows July 6, 1907; Kahlo had allegedly wanted the year of her birth to coincide with the year of the beginning of the  Mexican Revolution so that her life would begin with the birth of modern Mexico. Her work has been celebrated in Mexico as emblematic of national and  indigenous tradition and by feminists for its uncompromising depiction of the female experience and form.

Kahlo had a volatile marriage with the famous Mexican artist  Diego Rivera. She suffered lifelong health problems, many caused by a traffic accident she survived as a teenager. Recovering from her injuries isolated her from other people, and this isolation influenced her works, many of which are self-portraits of one sort or another. Kahlo suggested, "I paint myself because I am so often alone and because I am the subject I know best." She also stated, "I was born a bitch. I was born a painter.
