Thinking Pablo - Dora Marr Oil Painting by k Madison Moore Fine Artist

Thinking Pablo - Dora Marr
Picasso Inspired

Take a Seat Series

Fanciful and amusing oil paintings
of Miniature Paintings and Chairs with a 
sense of humor

Dora Marr, the photographer and painter who was Picasso’s lover and the principal model for many of his weeping woman portraits in the late 1930’s and 40’s. After their relationship ended she suffered from depression and opted to live in reclusion, living in the shadow of the image that Picasso created for her. Picasso said, I could never see her, never imagine her, except for crying. Is Dora thinking about Picasso here?

Pink Nude Oil Paintings, Modesty I and II by k Madison Moore

Modesty I and II

Emotions in Color Series

2 - 12 x 16 Pink Nude Oil Paintings on Canvas

These were fun to paint but you would think they would be easy
and they were not. Trying to blend colors in such a narrow space was
a challenge but I love the way they turned out.

I think they look great together but may be purchased separately 
as well. They are very "Modest" and contemporary so they would 
be nice in a living room, bedroom or anywhere.

 Frames are for display only so you can see how they look framed.
   The sides are painted so you really do not need frames. Either way looks great!

Modesty I

Modesty II

Engaged, Pop Art Chair Painting Inspired by Roy LIchtenstein by k Madison Moore

Inspired by Roy Lichtenstein

8 x 8 Lichtenstein Oil Painting on Canvas

Take a Seat Series
Fanciful and amusing oil paintings of
Chairs and Miniature Paintings
with a sense of humor.

Another fun, colorful small painting or my new series.
Always love painting with primary colors and Pop Art is
so fun and brings back my comic book days.

Roy Fox Lichtenstein was an American Pop Artist during the 1960's along with Andy Warhol and Jasper Johns. He became a leading figure in the new art movement. His work  defined the premise of Pop Art through parody.

Roy Lichtenstein was one of the most influential and innovative artists of the second half of the twentieth century. He identified with Pop Art, a movement he helped originate. His fully achieved paintings were based on imagery from comic strips and advertisements and rendered in a style mimicking the crude printing process of newspaper reproduction.

Welcome to My Dream, Rousseau Inspired Oil Painting by k Madison Moore

Welcome to My Dream
Inspired by Henri Rousseau

Painting with The Masters
Art within Art Series

14 x 14 x 2 Jungle Oil painting on Canvas

I love doing jungle paintings inspired by Henri Rousseau.
He had such a fun imagination. I was thinking about about working
with him again on another jungle piece before I went to sleep one night
so I had a dream about the composition and this is my dream. How cool is that!
…and yes, I do dream in color. I have been asked that many times because I do paint
a lot from my dreams. My brain never stops.

If I didn’t dream this I probably would have never thought to use the pinks 
 in a jungle painting but I do love the way it worked out with my take on Henri’s
wild jungle flowers. Just love Mr Tiger laying there chilling! Maybe he just woke up 
from a dream too!

Henri Julien Felix Rousseau  ( French) May 21, 8144 - September 2, 1910 was a French post impressionist painter in the Naive or Primitive manner.   He was also known as Le Douanier ( the customs officer)  a humorous description of his occupation as a toll and tax collector. He started painting seriously in his early forties: by age 49, he retired his job to work full time on his art.

Ridiculed during his lifetime by critics, he came to be recognized as a self taught genius whose works are of high artistic quality. Rousseau’s work exerted and extensive influence on several generations of avant-garde artists. He was well known for his jungle and animal paintings. His works are worth millions today.

Irises for van Gogh
Inspired by Vincent van Gogh

8 x 8 van Gogh Oil Painting on Canvas

The a Seat Series

Fanciful and amusing oil paintings of
Chairs and Miniature Paintings
with a sense of humor.

In May 1889, after episodes of self-mutilation and hospitalization,
Vincent van Gogh chose to enter an asylum in Saint-Rémy, France. 
There, in the last year before his death, he created almost 130 paintings.
Within the first week, he began Irises, working from nature in the asylum's garden.

Each one of Van Gogh's irises is unique. He carefully studied their 
movements and shapes to create a variety of curved silhouettes bounded by
wavy, twisting, and curling lines.

"How well he has understood the exquisite nature of flowers!”

Sold - On it's way to Canada

Fanciful and amusing oil paintings of
Chairs and Miniature Paintings

Salvador Dalí was a skilled  draftsman, best known for the striking and bizarre images in his surrealist work. Dalí's expansive artistic repertoire included film,sculpture ,and photography, in collaboration with a range of artists in  a variety of media.
 His eccentric manner and attention-grabbing public actions sometimes drew more attention than his artwork, to the dismay of those who held his work in high esteem, and to the irritation of his critics.

The Concept
Fanciful and amusing oil paintings of
Chairs and Miniature Paintings

My Meta Art

Meta is when I refer to The Master’s creative work. 
In this work is the inspiration. It's art about their art! 
It’s Art within Art. It's less about using their style 
and more about expressing my passion for and 
interpretation of what their body of work represents.

Walter Crane (15 August 1845 – 14 March 1915) was an English artist and book illustrator. He is considered to be the most i
Influential, and among the most prolific, children’s book creator of his generation andone of the strongest contributors to the child's nursery
motif that the genre of English children's illustrated literature would exhibit in its developmental stages in the latter 19th century.
Crane's work featured some of the more colourful and detailed beginnings of the child-in-the-garden
 motifs that would characterize many nursery rhymes and children's stories for decades to come. He was part of
 the Arts and Crafts movement  and produced an array of paintings, illustrations, children's books, ceramic 
tiles and other decorative arts. Crane is also remembered for his creation of a number of iconic 
images associated with the International Socialist movement.

18 x 18 x 2 Frida Kahlo Painting on Canvas
This is a beautiful size with the sides painted to match the painting.

In this composition I have surrounded Frida with beautiful flowers and colors.
Of course I included one of her and Diego’s favorites, Calla Lilies.

When Frida came home from her last visit to the hospital, still very ill,
her last request was that she be moved to a room with a better view of her
garden. She wanted to be able to see her garden while she laid in bed.
Shortly after she passed away.
She loved her garden and spent a lot of time there and many times would 
paint in her garden when she felt up to it.
I think it makes a great birthday painting for her this year.

Happy Birthday Frida Kahlo

van Gogh's New Studio Bedroom, oil painting inspired by Vincent van Gogh by k Madison Moore

van Gogh's New Studio Bedroom
Inspired by Vincent  van Gogh

In Love with van Gogh Project
Masters Studio Series

16 x 20 x 2 van Gogh Oil Painting on Canvas


A copy of this research and photos will be included with the
purchase of this painting along with a Certificate of Appraisal.

It has been some time since I have been able to complete my 
"In Love with van Gogh Project" The past six months I have had one
thing or the other with my health which caused very low energy and
motivation. Now I am back and painting like crazy and ready to start
adding new work to to all of my series including this one.

This will be the fourth composition my 'In Love with van Gogh Project."
My intentions are to paint 12 paintings depicting different stages of 
Vincent's life using his work for my inspiration and of course my imagination.

In this painting I have restyled his famous Bedroom Painting. He actually
 painted it three times as described below. I have also included a copy of Vincent's
original letter to his brother Theo about his bedroom painting. Theo managed and
supported Vincent's career and later had a gallery representing his work.

Theodorus "Theo" van Gogh1 May 1857 – 25 January 1891) was a Dutch art dealer. He was the younger brother of Vincent van Gogh, and Theo's unfailing financial and emotional support allowed his brother to devote himself entirely to painting.Theo died at the age of 33, six months after his brother died at the age of 37.
Theo is widely known for his influence on his brother; however, this often overshadows the significant impact that Theo made on the art world as a renowned art dealer: Theo played a crucial role in the introduction of contemporary Dutch and French art to the public.

The Red Vineyard at Arles is the only painting sold during van Gogh's lifetime the name of which we actually know, and that was "officially" recorded and acknowledged by the art world, and hence the lore persists.
Of course, bearing in mind that van Gogh didn't start painting until he was twenty-seven years old, and died when he was thirty-seven, it would not be unremarkable that he did not sell many. Furthermore, the paintings that were to become famous were the ones produced after he went to Arles, France in 1888, only two years before he died. What is remarkable is that just a few decades after his death his art would become well-known worldwide and that he would eventually become one of the most famous artists ever.

I my composition I have recreated his bedroom which he also used as a studio 
in the Yellow House. In May 1, 1888, Van Gogh rented four rooms. He occupied two large
 ones on the ground floor to serve as an atelier (studio) and kitchen, and on the 
first floor, two smaller ones facing Place Lamartine. The window on the first floor near 
the corner with both shutters open is that of Van Gogh's guest room, where
Paul Gauguin lived for nine weeks from late October 1888. 
Behind the next window, with one shutter closed, is 
Van Gogh's bedroom. The two small rooms at the rear were 
rented by Van Gogh at a later time.

I exchanged the door on the left for a huge sunflower from one of 
Vincent's paintings to adorn the entire wall.
I added many of Vincent's Sunflower compositions along with his "Fishing
Boats on the Beach  at Les Saintes painting and one of his several Poppies

His hat and pipe sit on the table near his easel where he kicked off his 
 shoes placed his palette on his chair. I decided to use a portion of Vincent's 
 Les Alpiles, Mountain Landscape as my window scene as it is such
a serene painting of his. Giving him a huge window with lots of light and
a wonderful view of the mountains and lake while he paints.
I loved adding his favorite lavender to the walls. 
(The lavender in my painting is more prevalent in person)

van Gogh's New Studio Bedroom

The Yellow House by Vincent van Gogh

The Bedroom by Vincent van Gogh

Les Alpilles, Mountain Landscape 
by Vincent van Gogh

Bedroom in Arles (French: La Chambre à Arles; Dutch: Slaapkamer te Arles) is the title given to each of three similar paintings by 19th-century Dutch Post-Impressionist painting Vincent van Gogh.
Van Gogh's own title for this composition was simply The Bedroom (French: La Chambre à coucher). There are three authentic versions described in his letters, easily discernible from one another by the pictures on the wall to the right.
The painting depicts Van Gogh's bedroom at 2, Place Lamartine in Arles, Bouches-du Rhone, France known as his Yellow House. The door to the right opened on to the upper floor and the staircase; the door to the left was that of the guest room he held prepared for Gauguin: the window in the front wall looked on to Place Lamartine and its public gardens. This room was not rectangular but trapezoid with an obtuse angle in the left hand corner of the front wall and an acute angle at the right.  Van Gogh evidently did not spend much time on this problem, he simply indicated that there was a corner, somehow.

Vincent's Original Letter to Theo bout his bedroom

First version
Van Gogh started the first version during mid October 1888 while staying in Arles, and explained his aims and means to his brother Theo:
"This time it simply reproduces my bedroom; but colour must be abundant in this part, its simplification adding a rank of grandee to the style applied to the objects, getting to suggest a certain rest or dream. Well, I have thought that on watching the composition we stop thinking and imagining. I have painted the walls pale violet. The ground with checked material. The wooden bed and the chairs, yellow like fresh butter; the sheet and the pillows, lemon light green. The bedspread, scarlet coloured. The window, green. The washbasin, orangey; the tank, blue. The doors, lilac. And, that is all. There is not anything else in this room with closed shutters. The square pieces of furniture must express unswerving rest; also the portraits on the wall, the mirror, the bottle, and some costumes. The white colour has not been applied to the picture, so its frame will be white, aimed to get me even with the compulsory rest recommended for me. I have depicted no type of shade or shadow; I have only applied simple plain colours, like those in crêpes.
Van Gogh included sketches of the composition in this letter as well as in a letter to Gauguin, written slightly later. In the letter, Van Gogh explained that the painting had come out of a sickness that left him bedridden for days. 

Second version In April 1889, Van Gogh sent the initial version to his brother regretting that it had been damaged by the flood of the Rhône while he was interned at the  Old Hospital in AiresTheo proposed to have it relined and sent back to him in order to copy it. This "repetition" in original scale (Van Gogh's term was "répetition") was executed in September 1889. Both paintings were then sent back to 

Third version When Van Gogh finally, in summer 1889, decided to redo some of his "best" compositions in smaller size (the term he used was réductions) for his mother and sister Wil, The Bedroom was amongst the subjects he chose. These réductions, finished late in September 1889, are not exact copies.

Provenance The first version never left the artist's estate. Since 1962, it is in the possession of the Vincent van Gogh Foundation, established by Vincent Willem van Gogh, the artist's nephew, and on permanent loan to the van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam.
  • The second version has, since 1926, been the possession of theArt Institute of Chicago as part of the Helen Birch Bartlett Memorial Collection. 
  • The third version, formerly in the possession of Van Gogh's sister Wil and later acquired by Prince Matsukata, entered the French national collections in 1959, following the French-Japanese peace settlement, and is on permanent display in the Mussee d'Orsay, Paris.  
  • All three versions of the Bedroom were brought together for the very first time in North America, at the Art Institute of Chicago in 2016.
