Studying Kandinsky By k Madison Moore Fine Art Oil Painting


Studying Kandinsky

Inspired by Wassily Kandinsky

14 x 18 Kandinsky Oil Painting on Canvas

©kMadisonMore wil not be present on painting)

Just love getting into painting with Kandinsky, especially with his
red compositions. My signature color is red, just love it. In this painting
I am also expressing that in our daily lives, kids in schools and colleges
and most businesses, it is technology world with computers, cell phones
and tablets. 
What about the ever forgotten idea of books? Does anyone take
the time anymore to actually pick up a book and read it?  Do you own one?

There is still nothing like the feeling of the paper pages with words and photos
relaying a story. Technology is great but so were the simple times when we all read
books. Someone was here "Studying Kandinsky" maybe using this computer a bit
but also reading books. Love to include them in my paintings. Enjoy!

Kandinsky


Along with Piet Mondriaan and Kazimir Malevich, Kandinsky is considered a pioneer in abstract art, undoubtedly the most famous. He was a synaesthete who could, quite literally, hear colors. This effect of color was a major influence on his art, and he even named some of his paintings "improvisations" and "compositions" as if they were works of music and not painting. Works by Kandinsky have been recently sold for as much as US$25 million. Probably the largest collection of his paintings may be seen in the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris.

Mens Club Oil Painting Inspired by Richard Linder by k Madison Moore



Mens Club - Linder
Inspired by Richard Linder

Painting with The Masters
Art within Art Series

Sold- On it's way to Canada
Thanks MS

16 x 20 Interior Oil Painting on Canvas


Once in awhile I like to paint geared more for my male collectors and fans.
However, if your a Linder fan this could be great for either male or female.
I love his crazy figures, especially of woman and their little bit of sexuality exposed.
Of course I always change things to make them mine but basically the same concept.

Richard Linder worked as an illustrator  for Vogue and Harpers Bazaar Magazines.
He started painting seriously in the year 1952. He held his first one man show in
1954. His style blends a mechanistic  cubism with personal images of robot like
figues, amazons and heroine's, harlequinades of self styled heroes - his artistic
panorama of the unruly 60's and 70's of the both century.

His favorite subject was very bazaar woman. Corsets and straps, emphasize
their sexual qualities. He had no hatred of woman and said he felt sorry for them.
"When I dress women in these corsets and contraptions in my painting, it's kind
of a way I see them wrapping themselves up."

His paintings used sexual symbolism of advertising and investigated definitions
of gender roles in the media.
Enjoy

Frida Kahlo Painting by k Madison Moore - The Feminist


Portrait of Frida Kahlo - "The Feminist"
©kMadisonMoore will not be on original painting

Forever Frida Series
16 x 20 x 2 Frida Kahlo Oil Painting on Canvas

I just loved painting this piece. It just went right
from designing to execution and it worked out just
as I intended it to. Just love when that happens.
I am getting to know her face well and enjoy painting her
and about her life. I found this wonderful article about her
being a feminist so I am going to share it with you.
For her time she was just so sassy and independent.
She drank and smoked all the time and didn't mind versing
her opinion and living her life the way she wanted and not
what was "expected" of a woman at that time. I admire that.
I admire her and what she stood for. I admire her as an artist
and all she had  to endure. This is long but worth it.
Enjoy!


Kahlo transformed the word “different” to “normal.” To this day, her work and her legacy attracts artists, as well as diverse groups such as feminists, gays, lesbians, communists, patients, the emotionally hurt and the politically active.

Here are five reasons why Frida is an icon of feminism and freedom:

1. Public bisexuality. Frida took pride in her sexuality. She liked to have both women and men in her bed. What primarily prompted her to have many extramarital affairs was Diego’s infidelity and his incapability of remaining sexually loyal to her. Eventually, the couple ended up having an open marriage. 
Frida openly made love to the women with whom Diego went to bed—such as the American actress,  Paulette Goddard. Diego didn’t have a problem with Frida broadening her sexual 
experiences with women, but he got outrageously jealous of the men she slept with—as Leon Trotsky. 

2. Defying the “female beauty” standards. Frida didn’t care to fit with the norm. She kept her “masculine” features untouched—she didn’t pluck her eyebrows, her mustaches or shave her armpit hair. It is said that she also darkened her eyebrows with a black pencil.
She created her own individual style, especially through her clothing. At the time, when women were keen on wearing tight dresses, Frida wore long skirts and loose shirts with vivid patterns. She braided fabrics into her hair and wore accessories that created a fashion frenzy across the world.Although Frida defied the standards of beauty in society, she’s still considered as one 
of the most attractive women.

3. Defying gender stereotypes. Women had few rights during the 1900s. At a time when men were seen as the dominant sex, it was expected of women to be housewives. Frida attended a co-educational school, something that was highly unusual in those days. Isabel Alcantara wrote,
in her book about Frida, “There were only about five girls to 300 boys at the school, and Matilde (Frida’s mother) was outraged at the thought that one of them was to be her daughter.”
Unlike other girls at school, Frida wore her hair parted and pulled back. She also appeared for family photos in men’s clothes.Not only did she dress like men did, but she also challenged 
men in drinking tequila. She continued drinking throughout her lifetime, despite her doctor’s firm disapproval.

4. Exploring intimate female experiences in her paintings. Again, during the 1900s, female experiences were private—but Frida publicized miscarriages, pregnancy, menstruation, operations, breastfeeding, infertility and sexual organs. Her paintings may seem disturbing at first, but they embody the challenges of being a woman.
She painted her self in a surrealist method that has shocked great painters across the world. Andre Breton, the French founder of surrealism, wrote of her work: “I must add that no other painting is so essentially feminine, for she fluctuates between wide-eyed innocence and sheer depravity in order to appear as seductive as possible.”
Her life and her artwork were directly interwoven with one another. Kahlo takes the viewer inside a woman’s mind and heart, and let us examine the fears, passion and suffering that secretly resides within us.

5. Politically active. Although she was born in Mexico, a country of tradition and Catholicism, Frida was an atheist and a proud communist. Despite her frequent health issues, Frida was an active member of the Communist party. She believed that only through Communism can we become human. She was also a Mexican patriot to a fault. She changed the year of her birth, 
from 1907 to 1910, to coincide with the Mexican revolution.
Kahlo had strong political convictions that were inspired by Marxist ideology. She wrote in her diary: “I’m convinced of my disagreement with the counterrevolution—imperialism, fascism, religion, stupidity, capitalism and the whole gamut of bourgeois tricks. I wish to cooperate with the revolution in transforming the world into a classless one, so that we can attain a better rhythm for the oppressed classes.”

Leon Trotsky, the exiled Marxist revolutionary with whom she had an affair, lived with her and Diego at  La Casa Azulfor two years. She also wrote about him: “I love Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin and Mao Tse as pillars of the new Communist world. Since Trotsky came to Mexico, I have understood his error. I was never a Trotskyist.”

Georgia O'Keeffe Painting, Chair Paintings by k Madison Moore


Georgia

Inspired By Georgia O'Keeffe

8 x 8 Chair Oil Painting

Another fun collectable small painting for my chairs paintings series.
I love Georgia O'Keeffe's flowers. They are so feminine. Image sitting in the 
middle of this big flower chair! I could just cuddle up in all that color.
The painting on the wall is a mini of one of her paintings in a lovely detailed
gold frame. Flowers in vase and some pearls and pink heels for the girly girl!
A nice addition to you chair collection.






Georgia O’Keeffe is best known for her close-up, or large-scale flower paintings, which she painted from the mid-1920s through the 1950s. She made about 200 paintings of flowers of the more than 2,000 paintings that she made over her career.[One of her paintings, Jimson Weed,  sold for $44.4 million, making it the most expensive painting sold of a female artist's work as of 2014.

Clock Oil Painting inspired by Dali, by k Madison Moore Watching Time




Watching Time
Inspired by Salvador Dali

Painting with The Masters
14 x 18 Dali oil painting on canvas

I recently painted an 8 x 8 Dali Inspired chair for my new 
Collectable Chairs Series "Take Seat. That painting
 inspired this painting. 
I love when that happens and now from this I have
yet another idea that I may paint at some point.

I love clocks so I love Dali too. 
I found a few titles for his Eye painting:
Subconscious Mind, Surrealist, Dreams, Subconscious.  
He sure did have a strange way of  "seeing things!"


The Persistence of Memory  is one of his most recognizable works. The painting has been in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New Your City, which received it from an anonymous donor. It is widely recognized and frequently referenced in popular culture and sometimes referred to by more descriptive (though incorrect) titles, such as 'The Soft 
Watches' or The Melting Watches.

The well-known Surrealist piece introduced the image of the soft melting socket watch.   Dali stated that the soft watches were inspired by the surrealist perception of a  Camembert  melting in the sun.

Salvador Dalí was born Salvador Felipe Jacinto Dalí y Domenech on May 11, 1904, in Figueres, Spain.
From an early age, Dalí was encouraged to practice his art and would eventually go on to study at an academy in Madrid. In the 1920s, he went to Paris and began interacting with artists such as Picasso, Magritte and Miro, which led to Dalí's first Surrealist phase. He is perhaps best known for his 1931 painting The Persistence of Memory, showing melting clocks in a landscape setting. 

The rise of fascist leader Francisco Franco in Spain led to the artist's expulsion from the Surrealist movement, but that didn't stop him from painting. Dalí died in 1989.





If you have an idea for a special painting just for you
or you would like me to design one for you, contact
me with your ideas or the artist that inspired you.

Day Dreaming Picasso Interior painting Inspired by Pablo Picasso by k Madison Moore



Day Dreaming Picasso 

Inspired by Pablo Picasso



©kMadisonMooreFineArtInc.2013

Painting with The Masters
Art within Art Series

14 x 18 Interior Oil Painting on Canvas

Sold Commission.




This is an example of repainting a similar painting to paintings

that are sold. So many collectors like painting that have already
been sold but really would like to have an original. My paintings
sell very quickly so my solution is to offer similar to sold paintings
but with subtle changes to make each one an original for that collector.
Many times I use the same title but / the collectors name on the end.

It is amazing how different they can look with some changes. In this 
one I changed the back ground colors and many of the colors in the 
furniture and flooring, added a new floral arrangement as well as
two different paintings on the wall and gave our lady a new face
and clothing and painted the piano black instead of red. This painting
is also larger format than the first.
What a big difference! 

If you see paintings that are already sold and would like a 
similar painted please contact me with your ideas. I can also add
colors and elements that you would like to have or I can design
a specific painting for you.


Contact Me for paintings similar to sold paintings Please feel free to email me with questions or for no obligation quotes. Don't forget to mention the paintings title. Commission Projects Welcome

This is somewhat of a pilot painting for a new series that 
I have been working on. The series will be called
"Take a Seat". I have no idea how this popped into my head but I 
 Have been having a lot fun creating it.
Curious? .... Stay tuned!

Sitting Around with Picasso is in addition to my previous Sitting 
with Picasso paintings that were so popular and the fine art prints 
 still are. I just laughed through this whole painting with 
making the chairs into people. 
Very Picasso! How fun is that!
