Frida Kahlo 106 Inspired Painting by k Madison Moore I have Wings I can Fly

The Medallion - I Have Wings to Fly

Forever Frida Series

Inspired by Frida Kahlo

16 x 20 Oil Painting on Canvas

Commission Projects Welcome
Do you have a Frida idea?
If so Email Me

I have such admiration for Frida and her life story. There are so many people that love her and many collectors of anything Frida Kahlo, that I decided to do a series as a homage to her. I have 6 older paintings already but will hopefully be able to build a series of 100 Frida paintings based on her life. 

This painting touched me and has a lot of meaning to my life as well.
I had years of recovery from a serious accident and lost the use of my painting arm for many years along with several other injuries and disabilities left from it. When I read about what she faced in her very short life I feel blessed and inspired.

1948 - Frida painted two self-portrait’s  in which she appears wearing the traditional Tehuana headdress. This is similar to the one that Diego loved so much.  In Frida’s painting she has a look of pain and tears on her face. I don’t like to paint sad emotions so I painted her as I would see her in this headdress, more beautiful and peaceful.  

I loved that she wore a medallion with a dove figure.  The Dove is generally thought to be a symbol of freedom. Birds can walk on the earth and swim in the sea as humans do but they also have the ability to soar into the sky. Birds are free to roam to earth and the sky. Many cultures believe that they are a symbol of eternal life, the link between heaven and earth.

Quote Frida:  “Feet, what do I need you for when I have wings to fly?”

I wonder if maybe her medallion represents her feelings in this quote.
With all of her pain and adversities she still faces life with a gentle positive spirit. Is this the spirit of the Dove?  The freedom and the ability to walk through life with bravery. Is this her link between Heaven and Earth? Eternity?

Original Art Museum Collection Series Oil Painting - Renoir by k Madison Moore

Dancing with Renoir

Inspired by Pierre - Auguste Renoir

Art  Museum Collection Series
11 x 14   Museum Oil Painting on Canvas

Painting with an artist like Renoir is a challenge to me. Not trying to really duplicate
his work but  doing my own impression. However, working with the impressionist
style is the real challenge. My usual work is so detailed and impressionism is so loose.
I think I did well with this piece. It has been sketched for about a year. I had to really be
in the mode for a challenge to paint this one.

Dancing with Renoir

Impressions of a few of Renoir’s Paintings in this museum exhibit painting

Summer of Moments 1883    
Dance in the City, 1883   
Dance at Bougival, 1883
    La Loge  The Theatre Box, 1874   

Pierre-Auguste Renoir (February 25, 1841 – December 3, 1919) was a leading french painter in that  Impressionist movement.
Renoir was born in Limonges, France, and was the child of a working-class factory. As a child, he worked in a porcelain factory where his drawing talents led to his deigning the prints on fine china. Before officially beginning his artist training, he painted hangings for overseas missionaries and decorations on fans.
A prolific artist, he created several thousand paintings. The warm sensuality of Renoir's style made his paintings some of the most well-known and frequently-reproduced works in the history of art. The single largest collection of his works—181 paintings in all—is at the Barnes Foundation, in Philadelphia Pennsylvania.

She and her second husband, Baron Raoul Kuffner, one of her earliest and wealthiest patrons, moved into American film director King Vidor's former house in Beverly Hills.

Miniature Chair Paintings Inspired by Modigliani by k Madison Moore

Jeanne’s Blue Shoes
Inspired by Modigliani

Miniature Paintings - Chairs Series
6 x 8 Chair Oil Painting on Canvas

I have been wanting to do a series of small paintings of chairs so here is the first of my
Chairs Series. I decided to start with a few based on The Masters that  I had in mind. I never get tired of panting with Modigliani, especially his portraits of Jeanne. It seems that they are all so different and she never looks the same in any two. This on is one of my favorites of Jeanne. I guess I picture Jeanne in high button blue shoes. I have no idea why, accept that I lie it, lol!

Jeanne Hebuterne  (6 April 1898 – 25 January 1920) was a French artist, best known as the frequent subject and common- law wife of the artist  Amedeo Modigliani.
gentle, shy, quiet, and delicate, Jeanne H├ębuterne became a principal subject for Modigliani's art. 
If you have never read the story or haven’t seen the movie it is a wonderful love story starring Andy Garcia. Definitely one of my favorites.

Monarch Cottage Oil Painting on Canvas by k Madison Moore

Monarch Fantasy Cottage

Fantasy Cottages Series

18 x 24 Cottage Oil Painting on Canvas

This is totally out of the box for me. I figured I would expand my horizons and try something new.
I have been thinking about this composition for awhile. I'll see how this one goes and maybe do more. 

I love cottages. I live in a mountain cottage. It was originally a mountain vacation home that we
made into a primary home. Believe me, it was and still is a lot of work and and ongoing project.
Our home sits in the middle of the woods overlooking a lake.  In the summer we have butterflies and hummingbirds all over the place among many other beautiful wildlife, deer, bear, groundhogs and more.

I love the Monarch Butterfly lady dancing her way to the pavilion among the monarchs, the flowers and the giant  mushrooms. I could live here in the depths of the woods listening to the waterfall among all the nature in my Fantasy Cottage.  Maybe cuddle up under one of those big mushrooms?Could you?

Miniature Nudes Series

5 x 7 Nude Oil Painting on Canvas

The Shawl


Love painting this miniature series. It's been awhile since I painted
so small. These are great for the collector that is running out of hanging space 
or even for a bathroom. I have  small gallery of miniature nude paintings 
hanging in my bathroom and it looks great, especially the side wall next to
the mirrors. Makes it look like twice as many, lol!

Reading with Picasso
Inspired by Pablo Picasso


Painting with The Masters
Art within Art Series

11 x 14 Interior Oil Painting on Canvas

I was looking around for some new inspiration
from Pablo when I realized that he painted 
many works with people reading. I did a search:
Did Picasso read a lot? The only answer I could find:

So I guess Picasso didn't read very much with
all the woman he had in his life. Quite amazing!
It is always fun to paint with Picasso.
His faces and colors are just the best!

Interior Oil Painting Inspired by van Gogh by k Madison Moore Tea with Vincent

Tea with Vincent

Painting with The Masters
Art within Art Series

11 x 14 Oil Painting of Interior

Thank you Charlotte

I recently came across a painting by Vincent van Gogh similar 
to the view out of this window. I could picture myself sitting
here having tea with Vincent overlooking a sea of Sunflowers.
It seemed to make his so happy to paint them all the time. it 
was one of his favorite subjects. The flooring is my take on
one of his paintings. I love the soft greens against the golds.

The brilliant blue dining set is so adorable. The blue
represents the brilliant blue he always used in his paintings.

The table is all set and waiting for Vincent  with giant coffee cakes, tea spoons and checked napkins. So cute!

Just got this lovely email from one of my collectors and wanted to share: Thank you Heather.

Dear Madison,  
 This is a  divine painting - absolutely beautiful.   Love Van Gogh -  Love the  'blue' colour of the  furniture, in the style of Van Gogh's  furniture (rustic) in his bedroom painting.    Almost bought a pale  'blue' suede 3 seater  sofa when we were living in Sao Paulo for 5 years in the 1990s.  Regret not having bought it.   T his painting will bring so much joy to anyone who sets eyes on  it.
It would have made Van Gogh proud  - you have captured his essence in it.    Anyone who paints  flowers  such as Sunflowers, Narcissus/Daffodils ,Irises, Peonies  must have a beautiful soul.  These flowers are so beautiful (not forgetting  orchids and Pansies).   If I had to live in a house like this overlooking  a beautiful field of Sunflowers I would spend my whole life day dreaming.   Love the orange centres you've given the Sunflowers - brings them to life in a special way.    The colour co-ordination of the   added items in the picture such as the   dark brown of the backs of the chairs, the orange frame of the picture on the wall, the beautiful carpet , the teapot, the  bowl  on the side board, framed photo of Van Gogh with his pipe,  the curtain, the  little red roof house in the background with the backdrop of the blue mountains add so much charm to this particular painting of yours - making  it really 'Special' in every way.  This means you must have been in a beautiful frame of mind while painting.   Thank you so much for sharing this painting with me.  
Hope both you and your hubby are doing fine.  
Thinking of you.  God bless!
Close with my warmest regards,

Blue Nude Oil Painting by k Madison Moore Purple

Feeling Shades of Purple

Emotions in Blue Series

11 x 14 Nude oil Painting on Canvas

This was fun. I like adding the accessories to the
nude body. The purple made a nice contrast to the blues.
In this painting I used a deeper blue to enhance the purples.
There are some days when we just need to feel the colors
we are wearing. I guess today she is
Feeling Shades of Purple.
humm...Do you know what Purple feels like?

Amethyst  In general, the beautiful purple color of this crystal is the color of the spirit and spirituality. Amethyst is also a crystal of protection, selflessness, nobleness, spiritual consciousness, meditativeness, balance and inner peace.

Picasso Interior Oil Paintings by k Madison Moore

More of my Picasso Interior Paintings Collection

 I think one of my favorite things about Picasso's work
is how he painted women.  Did he really see them this way?
I read that he painted them in such a manner to hide what they really
looked like but who knows if that is true. I think it was just his style
and maybe is comedic personality showing in his work. 

These are three of several I have painted with my impression
his ladies. The first two are sold. However I can repaint a similar
in any size that is desired. We can also use your colors and elements
to make changes or I can design one just for you.
Please contact me with your ideas.
Never any obligation
