Blue Nude Oil Painting - Reluctant by k Madison Moore


Emotions in Blue Series

11 x 14 Blue Nude Oil Painting on Canvas

I am so happy that my blue nudes are enjoyed
so much by my collectors that I have to keep adding
to this series. Always enjoy painting my nudes. The
blues are so different than painting the natural nudes.
Thanks to all of my collectors.

Hummm...why is she so reluctant?

Original Nude Oil Painting Emerging by k Madison Moore


Fine Art Nudes Series

11 x 14 Nude Oil Painting on Canvas

This is he second new natural nude painting that I have
completed for my Fine Art Nudes paintings series.  This one took such
a long time. The natural nudes are so much different than painting
the blue nudes so these are taking a little longer until I master the
technique for these.  It has been a log time. However, I am very pleased at 
the results of this piece and looking forward to painting more natural nude paintings.

Interior Painting Inspired by van Gogh by k Madison Moore

A Blessing for van Gogh

Painting with The Masters
Art within Art Series

11 x 14 Interior Oil Painting on Canvas

My Inspiration for this painting is from a combination
 of Vincent's paintings: 

 Portrait of Gauguin's Rocking Chair
Vincent's Straw Hat 
Sorrowing Old Man
Starry Starry Night
 Bedroom in Aries
 Head of an Angel
Vincents Shoes
Self Portrait

Read about my inspiration for this painting as you go through this post.

This is what Vincent said about his painting Sorrowing Old Man ('At Eternity's Gate')
"Today and yesterday I drew two figures of an old man with his elbows on his knees and his head in his hands. I did it of Schuitemaker once and always kept the drawing, because I wanted to do it better another time. Perhaps I’ll also do a lithograph of it. What a fine sight an old working man makes, in his patched  bombazine suit with his bald head."

I always loved this painting but I found it to be so sad so never used it in my work. After reading about van Gogh's doubts with his faith I decided to change the old man into van Gogh.

When Van Gogh was younger, he was thinking about dedicating his life to those living in poverty through evangelization. This religious undertaking helped him to create the Starry Night painting that everyone knows today. He was in an asylum in 1889 when he painted the image of the night sky with stars sparkling in the moonlight. Count the stars and there will be 11 of them.

Then I pictured  Vincent  sitting on his bed  praying deeply under the sky of his Starry Starry Night painting. I found this beautiful painting that Vincent painted after Rembrandt's  Head of an Angel and pictured it hanging on the wall behind him protecting him and blessing him in hopes of restoring Vincent's faith.
…and that is the inspiration for this painting about Vincent. 
A Blessing for van Gogh

“The Angel (After Rembrandt)” is also known as “Head of an Angel (After Rembrandt)” and “Half Figure of an Angel (After Rembrandt).” It’s an oil painting that looks more like watercolors than oils completed in September 1899, less than a year before Vincent Van Gogh would die of a gunshot wound.

Although not considered one of Van Gogh’s best works, it is one of his most notorious because the current location of the painting is unknown. Even the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, considered the most knowledgeable source of information on the enigmatic artist, has no idea where the painting is now or whether it has been accidentally destroyed or sitting in a private collection...

Rembrandt (1606–1669) painted many angels in his legendary career as well as other religious scenes. Van Gogh would copy numerous Rembrandt's, especially those featuring angels. This particular painting is done mainly in shades of blue with a yellow halo.  These shades and streaks of yellow can be seen in Van Gogh’s famous painting “The Starry Night.”  The angel’s downcast face is in pale skin tones, making the face pop out from the rest of the painting.
The angel is pretty but is not looking at the viewer. One arm is outstretched to the viewer, but the palm is tightly closed. The angel seems at once to be revelatory and yet still retains his secrets, almost teasing the viewer with his closed eyes, seraphic smile and closed hand. The angel mirrors Van Gogh’s own dilemma with Christianity.
Van Gogh and Christianity
Van Gogh was a minister in an impoverished mining community in Belgium when he was struck by the desire to create. His superiors removed him from the ministry because he looked and acted more like one of the miners than a minister. He was sent home in disgrace. It also during this time that Van Gogh doubted the same beliefs that he was preaching. Why would a loving God allow such suffering?
Van Gogh wrestled with Christianity the way that Jacob wrestled with the Angel – another Biblical scene Rembrandt painted but Van Gogh declined to copy. The angel in that painting has his eye half-opened and looks on Jacob with pity. Van Gogh’s angel looks very much like this angel, but does not show pity.

Picasso's Greatest Muse Painting of Interior by k Madison Moore

Expressions of Marie Therese -  Picasso’s Greatest Muse

Painting with The Masters - Art within Art Series

11 x 14 Interior Oil Painting on Canvas

I always love painting with Picasso and his many wives and lovers. Marie Theres was only 17 when they met and they were together for 10 years. I thought this composition would be fun to have a couple of portraits of Marie on the wall as well as her seated on the sofa. Picasso had such an imagination especially when portraying his women. Funny how he saw them!

Expressions of Marie Therese

Picasso’s Greatest Muse

The love affair of Pablo Picasso and Marie-Thérèse Walter forms a captivating new exhibit at Gagosian Gallery, curated in part by the couple’s granddaughter.

Picasso and Marie-Thérèse met by chance on the street while she was shopping at Galeries Lafayette in Paris in 1927. As the story goes, Picasso said, “You have an interesting face. I would like to do a portrait of you. I am Picasso.” Supposedly, the young girl knew nothing of the artist, who was married to the Russian dancer Olga Khokhlova at the time; but she agreed to see him again and a romance, which inspired countless works of experimental art, was born. Marie-Thérèse later gave birth to Picasso’s first daughter, and while the couple remained together for more than 10 years, they never married. ~ Paul Laster
