©kMadisonMoore2014


Chairs Series
6 x 8 Miniature Chair Oil Painting on Canvas


Marilyn Monroe (born Norma Jeane Mortenson; June 1, 1926 – August 5, 1962)[3] was an American actress, model, and singer, who became a major  sex symbol, starring in a number of commercially successful motion pictures during the 1950s and early 1960s.

Soon after her tragic death in 1962, Warhol made a series of paintings paying tribute to Marilyn Monroe, the film star and sex  symbol who had captured America’s imagination. Warhol based this Portrait on a publicity still from the 1953 film Niagara. Warhol took Marilyn Monroe as his subject in different mediums, silkscreening the actresses’ image multiple times on a grid in bright colors and black and white.

A Moment in Time - Frida and Diego Interior Painting by k Madison Moore


A Moment in Time - Frida and Diego

©KMadisonMoore2014

Frida Kahlo Series

14 x 18 Oil Painting on Canvas



Another addition to my Frida Series.   I was inspired by a scene in the movie “Frida” similar to this one where they were lying in bed talking about Frida’s paintings. She told Diego that he could probably paint like that when he was 12. Diego replied that, “He could never paint like that.” A  touching scene with Frida and Diego


This one was tough doing them  from the back to facing reflections in the mirror but I like the way it came out.  I had a blast getting lost in designing the very complicated pleated throw. It almost looks like a skirt but it is my design of an elaborate pleated, fringed Mexican throw. I was looking all over for reference for Mexican Blankets and there were really none that were unusual so I really got into all of the colors and pleats. Fun! Might have to make one for my bed!

Enjoy

6 x 8 Monet Chair Oil Painting on Canvas

From 1860 on, Monet abandonned dark colors and worked from a palette limited to pure light colors. In 1905, answering a question about his colors, he wrote :
"As for the colors I use, what's so interesting about that ? I don't think one could paint better or more brightly with another palette. The most important thing is to know how to use the colors. Their choice is a matter of habit. In short, I use white lead, cadmium yellow, vermilion, madder, cobalt blue, chrome green. That's all."

I must have been on a Monet mood lately. This is my second Monet
in two weeks. Just loving painting these little chair paintings.
Love Monet, love his palette and love painting with him.

Miniature Paintings

Art Deco
6 x 8 Chair Oil Painting on Canvas

Romain de Tirtoff (23 November 1892 – 21 April 1990) was a Russian- born artist  and designer known by the pseudonym Erté, from the French pronunciation of his initials. He was a diversely talented 20th-century artist and designer who flourished in an array of fields, including  fashion, jewelry, graphic arts, costume and set design and set design for film, theatre, and opera, and interior decor. 
Erté continued working throughout his life, designing revues, ballets, and operas. He had a major rejuvenation and much lauded interest in his career during the 1960s with the Art Deco revival. He branched out into the realm of limited edition prints, bronzes, and wearable art.
Two years before his passing, Erté created seven limited edition bottle designs for Courvoisier to show the different stages of the cognac-making process, from distillation to maturation.
Just an amazing talent in so many way. I fell in love with him the first time I laid eyes on his work.
I love animal prints and always admired a similar painting of Erte', of course because I adore cats
of all breeds.

Interior Painting Monet Melodies by k Madison Moore

Painting with The Masters
Art within Art Series

14 x 18 Oil Painting of Interior on Canvas


I have painted Monet's Giverny and Bridge many 
times but different each time as well as this floral piano.
I hope to some day visit Giverny and paint, paint,
paint. Many artists have visited The Gardens of Giverny
to paint. Many never returned  and made the town of
Giverny their home. I can only imagine how incredibly 
gorgeous it is there and to be able to pant so many 
beautiful scenes.

Meanwhile I could relax in this big beautiful room
looking out at the willow trees and the turquoise
Japanese Bridge that Monet loved so much.
Maybe listening to a quiet Melody from the piano
with a slight fragrant breeze coming from the
lily pond through the windows.
Can you imagine?

I found this very rare video of Monet
painting in his garden.
It very short but how wonderful to see  him live and painting.

Interior Painting Inspired by Modigliani by k Madison Moore Modi's Studio


Painting Jeanne 
 Modigliani’s Studio France 1917

Painting with The Masters
Masters Studios Series
14 x 18  Modigliani Oil Painting on Canvas



I never get tired of this love affair. So sad but beautiful at the same time. I
 am happy to add Modigliani to my Masters Studio’s Series. He painted over
200 works of Jeanne in the few short years they were together. I often wonder
where they would have gone and what they would have done had Modi and Jeanne
not died so young. What a wonderful artist he was and Jeanne was up and coming.
Do you think she would have painted so many pieces of him?

Enjoy
Painting Jeanne


Modigliani depicted his mistress, Jeanne Hébuterne (1898-1920), in more than twenty works but never in the nude.

In the history of art she is accorded the honorable role of the last but not the least influential muse of Modigliani. Popular literature and cinema repeatedly used her image to give their own view of the life story of the great artist, picturing her as a young girl devoted to her husband. 

The name of Jeanne Hebuteme  is inseparable from that of Amedeo Modigliani, and the surprising and sad truth is that it was her death rather than life that tied them together forever. It is common knowledge that she committed suicide the day after Modigliani’s death and was buried in the same grave. She didn’t live to see her 22nd birthday.

Peter Max Inspired Chair Oil Painting by k Madison Moore

6 x 8 Miniature Oil Painting on Canvas
Chair Series


I love Cherry Blossoms and Peter Max so just had to do a little chair painting for my loves. Peter paints the best cherry blossoms so I used his style for this painting. So fun to do these little chair paintings. They make nice collectables for those who are running out of hanging space and still need to collect.
In 1912, Mayor Yukio Ozaki of Tokyo bestowed an incredible gift of 3,000 cherry trees on the city of Washington, DC. Every year since, for one hundred years, the  National Cherry Blossoms Festival has continued to draw crowds to our nation’s capital.

World-renowned artist  Peter Max has been named the Official Artist of the Centennial Celebration, creating the dynamic 2012 commemorative poster in his iconic style.

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

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?
