Art Deco Painting of Interior with Cala Lilies Inspired by Diego Rivera by k Madison Moore


Flirting with Rivera

14 x 14 Interior Oil  Paining on Canvas

Art within Art Series

SOLD

I always found Calla Lilies to be a romantic flower.
Diego Rivera must have felt the same way as he used this flower is so many of his compositions.
Did you ever see some of the huge murals he did with this flower? He was so in tuned to the Mexican culture and did many murals depicting the Mexican culture that I was surprised that at one point his work was considered Art Deco.

I took a chance with the color palette on this painting with adding mauve to the other colors but I really like the interest it created and I think it worked out really well.

Thanks to all my collectors for all your purchases and commission for this series.

More to come.
Have a great weekend.

Still Life Painting of modern Interior, Inspired by Alexander Calder by k Madison Moore Pennsylvania Artist


Playing Calder

18 x 24 Oil on Canvas

Sold- Commission

Painting with The Masters
Art within Art Series


This composition on Calder and it has really been a challenge. He uses mostly primary colors and very simplistic design so you would think it would be easy! With research and finding that Calder invented the Mobile and many other toys and large sculptures, the word "Playing" just stuck in my head. In this composition the mobile suspends playfully from the ceiling above one of Calder's Sculptures downsized. The original, is Huge! Playing in the paint to create this piece brought to mind "playing" music so this is where the huge Baby Grand  Piano came in on the floor, almost a carpet effect with the objects floating upon it. My way of "playing" in the painting! Oh boy...where do these thoughts come from! Enjoy!


The Cirque Calder can be seen as the start of Calder's interest in both wire sculpture  and kinetic art. He maintained a sharp eye with respect to the engineering balance of the sculptures and utilized these to develop the kinetic sculptures Duchamp would ultimately dub as "mobiles", a French pun meaning both "mobile" and "motive." He designed some of the characters in the circus to perform suspended from a thread. However, it was the mixture of his experiments to develop purely abstract sculpture following his visit with Mondrain that lead to his first truly kinetic sculptures, manipulated by means of cranks and pulleys.

Two months after his death, Calder was posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the United States' highest civilian honor, by President Gerald Ford. However, representatives of the Calder family boycotted the January 10, 1977 ceremony "to make a statement favoring amnesty for Vietnam War draft registers.

Painting with The Masters
Art within Art Series

I love Miro, his primary colors and his childlike style. I painted a similar room to this
before. My collector loved the room and the painting I used that is similar to Miro's 
of course with my changes. The first was a theme of a gambling party and the aftermath.
My collector is not in to gaming so we decided to make it more of a romantic theme but 
using most of the colors and furniture I used in the first.

I am including a photo of the first so you can see the changes. I do this general idea for 
every similar painting that I repaint. Many collectors find paintings that they like in my
portfolio that have already been sold.  I offer to repaint the painting for them but I like to
make changes so that each one is an original for that collector. If you see something that 
you like that is already sold that you would like to have a similar of, Contact Me with your
ideas and don't forget to mention the titles. Of course I can also design on just for you
with your favorite Master as well. You can check out all of my series on My Portfolio. 
This painting will also live in Brazil.
Enjoy!

Emotions in Color Series
14 x 28  x 1.5   Pink Nude Oil Painting on Canvas

I have never displayed two together like this.
I had this idea for so long and finally got around 
to painting them. Of course they are much nicer in
hand as I hear all the time :)

 It is so hard to get the perfect colors with a
 camera. Especially the pink and purple nudes
on a black background.

Because the pink is mixed with the black shadows
in the photo the purple comes out more. There is a
lavender cast to them but they are more pink.
These photos are very close.

I think they are so romantic and and dramatic
can be displayed in so many different settings
as below.

They re available together or separately.

Email Me





Here's a few ways they could be displayed

On my previous post I got his all wrong. This is what happens
with too much multi tasking :)


14" x 28" + 14" x 28"  = 56" plus in between space
These have a really nice span together



      On a large wall behind a sofa would look great too

Animal Portraits Series

16 x 20 Animal Portrait Painting Oil on Canvas


This was a special gift for my Veterinarian and his lovely wife.
They surprised me with an invitation to their beautiful baby shower luncheon
that was this past Sunday.  I wanted to do something special  so I did this
as a sister painting to the other painting that I did for baby Hudson.

I framed both in white floater frames and framed the poem in white as well
for them to hang with this painting. The colors are off here.

Commissions welcome. Contact me with your ideas :)

After Six Series
16 x 20 Boutique Interior Oil Painting on Canvas

Sold - Commission

This is year another painting designed for my collectors for the 
After Six Series. I love that this series is ongoing and that the collectors
have such creative minds. It makes everything so much more fun.

My collectors wanted After Six in a boutique setting with several choices
of formal wear in many shades of mostly pinks. They also wanted her original
outfit somewhere in the piece. The hot pink shirt and the white top with pink 
and blue flowers on hangers is the from the original After Six painting.
You can see the other paintings in this series in my recent previous posts.

Now my collectors are deciding on another painting for this series. I have
so many fun choices of where she is going or will be next so stayed tuned for
more of the After Six Series.

If you have a painting in mind for the After Six Series  please email me. The series
is open for anyone that would like to jump in and add their own painting to this
series. How fun is that!

Reflections After Six, Contemporary Landscape Oil Painting by k Madison Moore




Reflections After Six
©kMadisonMoore

After Six Series

20” x 30” Landscape Oil Painting on Canvas

Sold Commission


Well, this is something I haven’t done for many years.  Didn’t even think
about painting landscapes until my collector requested me to do two for him
and now that he saw these he has commissioned me for another.

My collectors have created their own little series around a painting I did titled After Six.
When they received it, even though a small piece, they fell in love with everything
in the painting, her face, her hair, her eyes and especially the hot pink skirt.

Since their purchase of “After Six” I have now painted several and cross re
referencing her in some way in each painting. In my last painting she was 
subtly in the background as the pianist.  

In this painting she is trying the retrieve her hat from the lake.
I loved painting the reflections of the trees and bridge  and especially
the water lilies. Another nice piece to add to the After Six Series
along with Forever in Love that I posted yesterday. ( photo below)
More to come!

Enjoy.

subtly in the background as the pianist.  In this painting she was here and 
left her hat and scarf and book….or maybe she is just taking a walk around the 
beautiful floral lake to look at the swans.

Swans only have one mate in life. My collectors still have a love affair in their
marriage after 30 years so we have decided to name this painting
Forever in love.

Enjoy.

Stay tuned for the next After Six Paintings

Thank you Ralph and Caryn for the great commission projects

Blue Nude Minimalist Oil Painting by k Madison Moore She Dreams in Blue


She Dreams in Blue

©kMadisonMoore

Emotions in Blue Series

14 x 18 Blue Nude Oil Painting on Canvas




She Dreams in Blue (sequel to "The Pawnbroker's Stepdaughter")

The tiptoes on the bedroom floor
These quiet eyes are spinning in the dark
The secret wish that none will know
She keeps it locked up in her pale heart

Wait for it, it's tired and it's true
Wait for it, it's all she ever knew

She dreams in blue
Wait for it, it's all she ever knew

The background hum of city streets
And whispers from the neighbors intertwine
The distant glow of beacon lights are 
Breaking through the cracks between the blinds

Wait for it, it's hiding out of view
Wait for it, it's all she ever knew

She dreams in blue
Wait for it, it's all she ever knew

She opens up her weary eyes
The foggy cloud of vision fills the air
She strains to make some sense of all the
Abstract shapes and colors everywhere

But all the blue just fades away dissolving in a haze of grey
And lost inside her empty mind is everything she tried to find
And all the blue just fades away, she lost it in a haze of grey

She dreams in blue
Wait for it, it's all she ever knew

Who s The Black Swan? Her Black Swan by k Madison Moore



Her Black Swan
©kMadisonMoore

“But when the swan departs, you shall remain behind, like an abandoned woman.” - Sri Guru Granth Sahib


This is something different for me with a totally different palette. Sometimes we have to just go with the flow and paint whatever
 comes in mind so that is what I did. 

 Is the Black Swan her mate, her lover, her friend?
Can you tell this story? I am leaving this one to you.
Would love to hear your rendition :)
