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

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.

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

“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 :)

Forever Frida Series, Frida Kahlo's Birthday, Portrait of Frida Kahlo by k Madison Moore

"I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it's true I'm here, and I'm just as strange as you.” 





 Portrait of Frida Kahlo in a Floral Dress
©kMadisonMoore



I have so much respect and admiration for Frida Kahlo and is why I have dedicated a series to her. If you are not familiar with her please click the enclosed links to read about her life. Her life was full of physical pain from a serious accident. I can relate. I also had a serious accident with many injuries including breaking my painting arm in half. I did not paint for 5 years and had to learn so much again. Frida is an inspiration to all women artists. Yesterday was her birthday and I wanted to post this then but was a bit under the weather.

This beautiful floral portrait is my birthday gift for Frida.
Enjoy!

Forever Frida Series

16 x 20 Frida Kahlo Oil Painting on Canvas





Frida Kahlo de Rivera born Magdalena Carmen Frieda Kahlo y Calderón; July 6, 1907 – July 13, 1954)  was a  Mexican painter 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. 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.  Mexican and Amerindian cultural tradition are important in her work, which has been sometimes characterized as naive art or folk art.  Her work has also been described as surrealist, and in 1938 Andre Breton, principal initiator of the surrealist movement, described Kahlo's art as a "ribbon around a bomb".Frida rejected the "surrealist" label; she believed that her work reflected more of her reality than her dreams.

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."

This was a special gift for a special friend who is a Veterinarian. Last October I lost my sweet
pet cat Russian Blue named Maxwell at 17 years old. My vet took such great care of him. In
December I was till broken hearted and when Andrew ( my Vet) heard this he got me another
beautiful baby Russian immediately that we named Pita or Petee.

When I found out that he and his wife were expecting I wanted to show my gratitude so I painted this
for their new son Hudson. They loved it! The title of their's is "Hudson's Special Friends." You can see his name across the book that the little owl on the crib is holding.
I can personalize yours with any name you want and anywhere you want within the print.

Frida Kahlo The strength of the Magnolia is also symbolic of self-respect and self-esteem. Oil Painting by k Madison Moore


Frida’s Magnolias

Forever Frida Series

14 x 18 Frida Kahlo Oil Painting on Canvas

Sold

Frida's Magnolia / Floral Painting




This is another dream. I was researching Frida and found this lovely 
painting she created of Magnolias and other flowers. That night I had a
dream of Frida surrounded by Magnolias and wearing her arrangement
in her painting as a headpiece.  Went to my studio early am and started 
right in and this is what evolved. Love it when things like this happen.
I dream so much of my work that I have even started a new series titled

Only in My Dreams 
This will be all kinds of work, 
all subjects, no series, just dreams.
What do you think?

There are so many meanings for the representation of the Magnolia that can refer to Frida. Maybe that is why she favored them. Here are a few.

The Pear Cactus Flower is a representation of life and death existing in many of Frida Kahlo's paintings. Also in the right of the flower arrangement there is a open calla lily which is not very obvious at all. The artist put it there most likely because calla lily is the favorite color of her husband Diego Rivera and it showed up in lots of Diego's paintings.

The Magnolia Tree was named after a French Botanist Pierre Magnolia in the 1600’s. The scent of the flower depend on which variety of Magnolia is used. Each color leads to a different meaning.  The White Magnolia Flowers stand for purity and perfection.

During the Victorian times, the magnolia flowers symbolized dignity, nobility, poise, and pride. 

The strength of its bloom is also symbolic of self-respect and self-esteem.

 Since these flowers represent durability, strength of character, and bearing, they are widely used in weddings.

 Magnolias are also associated with the life force and therefore can be sent over on the occasion of birth.

 These flowers also represent a love of nature.

A Waltz is a dance in triple time. Waltz Paintings by k Madison Moore



Melodies of After Six I and II
©kMadisonMoore

Dance Paintings Series

20 x 48 Dance Oil Painting on Canvas

Sold Commission

I painted a piece titled ‘Waltz by The Light of The Moon”. My new collectors fell in love with the concept but they wanted their own original.
Then they decided that they wanted a two part canvas to be connected in some way but yet be able to stand on it’s own without the other. I connected them by the huge tree and the sky and by adding musicians to the right canvas.

They also purchased a painting from me titled “After Six”. They fell in love with the redhead, her face, her big pink hat, the hot pink shirt and her floral shirt. They decided they wanted her to be the pianist in their Waltz painting and we would call this composition ‘ “Melodies of After Six”

What fun these collectors are to work with. They now have a few new scenarios’s for future paintings featuring “After Six” which of course is her name now.

If you have an idea for a special painting please email me. I would love to work with you.
