Fine Art Nudes Series

11 x 14 Nude Oil Painting on Canvas

This is he second new natural nude painting that I have
completed for my Fine Art Nudes paintings series.  This one took such
a long time. The natural nudes are so much different than painting
the blue nudes so these are taking a little longer until I master the
technique for these.  It has been a log time. However, I am very pleased at 
the results of this piece and looking forward to painting more natural nude paintings.

Painting with The Masters

11 x 14 Interior Oil Painting on Canvas

It's always fun to paint with Picasso.
I was researching Picasso paintings
for inspiration for a new composition and
realized that Pablo painted many with people
reading. I did a search: Did Picasso love to 
read and what came up was that 65% of men
are unfaithful to their wives and the other 35%
read! I thought that was so funny but then again
when you think about how many women Picasso
had if that is true, it's not likely he had much time to 
read, lol!
No offense gentlemen, this is just what I read.
Doesn't mean it's true!

A Blessing for van Gogh Interior Oil Painting by k Madison Moore




A Blessing for van Gogh
©kMadisonMooreFineArtInc.2013

Painting with The Masters
Art within Art Series

11 x 14 Interior Oil Painting on Canvas



My Inspiration for this painting is from a combination
 of Vincent's paintings: 

 Portrait of Gauguin's Rocking Chair
Vincent's Straw Hat 
Sorrowing Old Man
Starry Starry Night
 Bedroom in Aries
 Head of an Angel
Vincents Shoes
Self Portrait
Sunflowers 

Read about my inspiration for this painting as you go through this post.





This is what Vincent said about his painting Sorrowing Old Man ('At Eternity's Gate')
"Today and yesterday I drew two figures of an old man with his elbows on his knees and his head in his hands. I did it of Schuitemaker once and always kept the drawing, because I wanted to do it better another time. Perhaps I’ll also do a lithograph of it. What a fine sight an old working man makes, in his patched  bombazine suit with his bald head."

I always loved this painting but I found it to be so sad so never used it in my work. After reading about van Gogh's doubts with his faith I decided to change the old man into van Gogh.



When Van Gogh was younger, he was thinking about dedicating his life to those living in poverty through evangelization. This religious undertaking helped him to create the Starry Night painting that everyone knows today. He was in an asylum in 1889 when he painted the image of the night sky with stars sparkling in the moonlight. Count the stars and there will be 11 of them.


Then I pictured  Vincent  sitting on his bed  praying deeply under the sky of his Starry Starry Night painting. I found this beautiful painting that Vincent painted after Rembrandt's  Head of an Angel and pictured it hanging on the wall behind him protecting him and blessing him in hopes of restoring Vincent's faith.
…and that is the inspiration for this painting about Vincent. 
Enjoy
A Blessing for van Gogh






“The Angel (After Rembrandt)” is also known as “Head of an Angel (After Rembrandt)” and “Half Figure of an Angel (After Rembrandt).” It’s an oil painting that looks more like watercolors than oils completed in September 1899, less than a year before Vincent Van Gogh would die of a gunshot wound.

Although not considered one of Van Gogh’s best works, it is one of his most notorious because the current location of the painting is unknown. Even the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, considered the most knowledgeable source of information on the enigmatic artist, has no idea where the painting is now or whether it has been accidentally destroyed or sitting in a private collection...

Rembrandt (1606–1669) painted many angels in his legendary career as well as other religious scenes. Van Gogh would copy numerous Rembrandt's, especially those featuring angels. This particular painting is done mainly in shades of blue with a yellow halo.  These shades and streaks of yellow can be seen in Van Gogh’s famous painting “The Starry Night.”  The angel’s downcast face is in pale skin tones, making the face pop out from the rest of the painting.
The angel is pretty but is not looking at the viewer. One arm is outstretched to the viewer, but the palm is tightly closed. The angel seems at once to be revelatory and yet still retains his secrets, almost teasing the viewer with his closed eyes, seraphic smile and closed hand. The angel mirrors Van Gogh’s own dilemma with Christianity.
Van Gogh and Christianity
Van Gogh was a minister in an impoverished mining community in Belgium when he was struck by the desire to create. His superiors removed him from the ministry because he looked and acted more like one of the miners than a minister. He was sent home in disgrace. It also during this time that Van Gogh doubted the same beliefs that he was preaching. Why would a loving God allow such suffering?
Van Gogh wrestled with Christianity the way that Jacob wrestled with the Angel – another Biblical scene Rembrandt painted but Van Gogh declined to copy. The angel in that painting has his eye half-opened and looks on Jacob with pity. Van Gogh’s angel looks very much like this angel, but does not show pity.

11 x 14 Interior Oil Painting on Canvas


I always love painting with Picasso and his many wives and lovers. Marie Theres was only 17 when they met and they were together for 10 years. I thought this composition would be fun to have a couple of portraits of Marie on the wall as well as her seated on the sofa. Picasso had such an imagination especially when portraying his women. Funny how he saw them!

Expressions of Marie Therese


Picasso’s Greatest Muse

The love affair of Pablo Picasso and Marie-Thérèse Walter forms a captivating new exhibit at Gagosian Gallery, curated in part by the couple’s granddaughter.


Picasso and Marie-Thérèse met by chance on the street while she was shopping at Galeries Lafayette in Paris in 1927. As the story goes, Picasso said, “You have an interesting face. I would like to do a portrait of you. I am Picasso.” Supposedly, the young girl knew nothing of the artist, who was married to the Russian dancer Olga Khokhlova at the time; but she agreed to see him again and a romance, which inspired countless works of experimental art, was born. Marie-Thérèse later gave birth to Picasso’s first daughter, and while the couple remained together for more than 10 years, they never married. ~ Paul Laster

Art Museum Interior Painting - Picasso in Red by k Madison Moore


Picasso in Red - Twisted Secrets
©kMadisonMoore 2014

Art Museum Collections Series

14 x 18 Oil Painting on Canvas


In this painting I wanted to portray not only the beautiful work of Picasso but a bit of his state of mind. You will notice that the walls are a bit twisted as well as the frames, just slightly, but twisted. These are also a few of my very favorite of his paintings.

I have worked with Picasso so much being one of my favorite artists, that I always notice how he twists his figures and other elements in his paintings. It seems he needs to show more than one angle with one single figure.
 You have had to notice the misplacement of eyes, noses, breasts projecting more than one angle. etc. in many and most of his works. Seeing the same face in many angles at one time and executing that idea, wow!

Although we all know how wonderfully talented he was and the incredible amount of work he produced in his lifetime, do we ever think of how he accomplished all of that and why? To me it is a sate of mind. The mind of a genus that is twisted in many ways. Did he have many twisted secrets that he had to portray in paint? What was his inner most secret, one that he could not verbalize so had to be projected otherwise, in paint, for his own sanity? Only he really knew the true meaning to all of those twisted figures. 

If you look at the works of van Gogh they will have and entirely different affect on you than Picasso's works. You do not really see the insanity that was present but the mellow, softness, serenity and beauty of where he was within, yet was said to be mentally off. Most look at Picasso in an entirely different manner and as totally sane but was he? 

I find it interesting that so many artists are tortured in some way and yet paint such beautiful works. Many that portray who they really are deep down inside and not so much what you see on the cover. You can tell  lot by studying the works of the masters, any artists really!  I look at the work and wonder what they were thinking and feeling at the first stroke of that painting. I can look at it again and again and see something different each time. That is the wonder of art!

I guess what  it comes down to is, that God may take something away from us but certainly something else wonderful will replace it.

all the way into the smallest painting of a painting on the wall where you 
 can see a white pitcher. This was so much fun that if I had the space I would
 have done a painting within one more time! lol!

Every time I paint with Roy I wonder how he ever continued to paint
will all those dots and stripes! Then I saw a demo of him painting recently
and realized that he painted huge paintings, some the size of walls. So,
you can just image how big one dot was! 

I had a so much fun painting this so the title fits well!

American Artist Roy Lichtenstein was born in New York City on October 27, 1923, and grew up on Manhattan's Upper West Side. In the 1960s, Lichtenstein became a leading figure of the new Pop Art movement. Inspired by advertisements and comic strips, Lichtenstein's bright, graphic works parodied American popular culture and the art world itself. He died in New York City on September 29, 1997.

Thanks again MD
Your collection is really growing!


I had this idea in my head of my Big Hat Ladies
having an afternoon conversation over drinks, when
I thought about Matisse's painting,  La Conversation
that he painted in 1938. 
I thought it would be great with this composition
because the ladies look like they are eavesdropping
on the party. Notice I even included them by giving
them their own drinks, lol!
Matisse is known for mixing many patterns in one 
composition. I love doing this also because it's a challenge.
He not only mixed patterns but many colors together
that you would probably never think of using or would
not want to use together!
It's hard to do but I think I accomplished it here in giving
each lady their own color combinations. Somehow it
always seems to work out. Love the faces I gave them this
time too! So smirky!

Alphonse Mucha Master Studio Interior Oil Painting by k Madison Moore




Alphonse Mucha  Studio - Prague 1890

Masters Studio Series
14 x 18 Mucha Oil Painting on Canvas

Alphonse Maria Mucha 24 July 1860 – 14 July 1939), often known in English and French as A Mucha, was a Czech Art Nouveau painter and decorative artist, known best for his distinct style. He produced many paintings, illustrations, advertisements, postcards, and designs.

I love Much and his beautiful style. However, these models are quite different than his. I only used similar poses as his. I wanted to create my own beautiful faces with a touch of Mucha since the scene I created for them is Mucha’s studio in Prague. Who know what it really looked like but this is what was in my mind. This is how I would want it, looking out to the water over the rooftops from my studio window. Art Nouveau and Art Deco are two of the greatest design periods of all time.

Mucha produced a flurry of paintings, posters, advertisements, and book illustrations, as well as designs for jewelry, carpets, wallpaper, and theatre sets in what was termed initially The Mucha Style but became known as Art Nouveau (French for "new art"). Mucha's works frequently featured beautiful young women in flowing, vaguely Neoclassical looking robes, often surrounded by lush flowers which sometimes formed halos behind their heads. In contrast with contemporary poster makers he used pale pastel colors.
