What better than flowers and perfume

Growing into womanhood can be difficult. There seemed to be a criteria for being a woman. You are expected to dress and act a certain way according to what age you may be. I say no matter what age you are it is always wonderful to have elegance, grace, class and  surround yourself with beautiful things but most of all……you  must always possess a delectable bottle of perfume.

“ A woman can be overdressed but never over Elegant” - Coco Chanel


(The dress has tiny beads of paint all over
to make the dress look beaded.)



Monet - Painter of Flowers
 11 x 14 oil on canvas

I think these look great together. Both in the pinks,
both florals. Maybe even a narrow gold frame...or not!
Nice for a quaint area or over a foyer table or nightstand.

great for her to have two original Marilyn Monroe paintings so he ordered two
and gave her one for Mothers Day which was my Warhol’s Marilyn’s Exhibit that
I posted the other day and this one for their anniversary. She was so surprised!
I have included photos of her surprised expressions

Thanks so much Devon.








Marilyn Monroe (born Norma Jeane Mortenson; June 1, 1926 – August 5, 1962) was an American actress and model. Famous for playing dumb blonde characters, she became one of the most popular sex symbols  of the 1950s, emblematic of the era's attitudes towards sexuality. Although she was a  top-billed actress for only a decade, her films grossed $200 million by the time of her unexpected death in 1962.She continues to be considered a major popular culture icon.

Abstract Flowers Series
Sold

16 x 20 Abstract Flowers oil Painting on Canvas

I decided to do these flowers in a series of different sizes
so this one is a bit smaller. I like these so much that I did a few for my own 
walls. They are so much fun to figure out and I enjoy a challenge. I love the way
the smaller flowers are showing through the transparent petals of the larger
flowers. This is beautiful custom made pink that I had specially made since I
could not find any traditional pinks that I liked. 




Monet's ambition of documenting the French countryside led him to adopt a method of painting the same scene many times in order to capture the changing of light and the passing of the seasons. From 1883 Monet lived in Giverny, where he purchased a house and property, and began a vast landscaping project which included lily ponds that would become the subjects of his best-known works. In 1899 he began painting the water lilies, first in vertical views with a Japanese bridge as a central feature, and later in the series of large-scale paintings that was to occupy him continuously for the next 20 years of his life.

9” x 12”  Andy Warhol / Marilyn Monroe
Oil Painting on Canvas

Sold Commission




Andy Warhol was best known for mass-producing images of mass-produced objects. His work from the 1960s revolved around American Pop culture. He painted dollar bills, celebrities, brand name products and images from newspaper clippings- many of the latter were iconic images from headline stories of the decade. 



His subjects were instantly recognizable, and often had a mass appeal- this aspect interested him most and it unifies his paintings from this period. Warhol stated that when Marilyn Monroe died ', I got the idea to make screens of her beautiful face the first Marilyn’s for him, she symbolized the apex of the beauty that Hollywood glitz and glamour had to offer. She was a household name, and it is clear that, in her fame, Andy Warhol greatly admired and looked up to her.

Lovers Lane - Bella My Love Forever / Painting Inspired by Marc Chagall by k Madison Moore



Lovers Lane - Bella My Love Forever
©kMadisonMoore

Painting with The Masters Series

12 x 22 x 2 Marc Chagall Lovers Oil Painting on Canvas








I remember seeing Marc Chagall at the Philadelphia Museum of Art in the 80’s. I fell  
in love right there. I kept feeling the urge to touch the paintings. They drew me in. The canvases  were huge, romantically lit and full of emotion and passion. I had a head set 
 on explaining each painting as we moved through the exhibit. I was overwhelmed with inspiration and had tears in my eyes at the end of the exhibit. That week, 
I saw the exhibit four times.

Marc’s love for Bella is a true love story and will surely be one of the best.  She was his muse and inspired him forever even after her death. This painting is all about Bella and Marc and portrays how they felt about each other.  Excerpts are my impressions of  
 Marc and Bella from his work as they float through Lovers Lane.


Marc Zakharovich Chagall  6 July 24 June] 1887 – 28 March 1985) was a Russian French Artist- An early modernist, he was associated with several major artistic styles and created works in virtually every artistic medium, including painting, book illustrations, stained glass, stage sets, ceramic, tapestries and fine art prints.

After he married Bella the lovers  sought each other, embraced, caressed, floated through the air, met in wreaths of flowers and loved each other for life.

Bella swiftly became Marc’s muse and continued to visit his canvases for the rest of his life. Famously,  he often depicted himself and Bella flying together, as if their shared joy had such physical force it countermanded the law of gravity itself. 

The Blue Sky in this painting represents the color of Mar’s eyes:

Bella’s influence never went away – it permeated everything he did even 20 years after her death. In her memoirs, Bella wrote of their first meeting: “I was surprised at his eyes, they were so blue as the sky … I’m lowering my eyes. Nobody is saying anything. We both feel our hearts beating.”

Until her death, Bella appeared in some of his most famous works, including “Bella with White Collar,” 1917 which is in the back ground of this painting nearest to the blue sky.
Though Chagall remarried in 1952, his second wife, Valentina Brodsky, rarely appeared in his work, and Bella continued to act as his “Inspirer”—his lifelong muse.

This is a beautiful video of Marc and Bella

Dreaming Diego - Frida Kahlo - Happy Birthday 2016 by k Madison Moore


Dreaming Diego - Frida Kahlo
Happy Birthday 2016

14” x 18” Frida Kahlo Oil Painting on Canvas

Forever Frida Series

I was hoping to have more Frida paintings in this series by now but
I have so many series to keep up with and commissions. However,
I could not miss her birthday and will do a painting as a homage 
to her hopefully every birthday. 




Sold

This is one that I have had planned for awhile. It is a take off of one of Frida’s self portraits. I always loved the  Mexican traditional Tehuana costume but I have changed the colors and design a bit to what appeals to me. In her original painting below she painted Diego in the middle of her forehead. I never liked that so I chose to have er Dreaming about Diego and a small visual of how she is seeing him in her mind. This is my impression of Frida’s self portrait.

Frida Kahlo de River July 6, 1907 - 1954 born
Magalena Carmen Frieda Kahlo Calderon, was a Mexican painter / artist
known for her self portraits.

Kahlo's life began and ended in Mexico City, in her home, which is known as "La Casa Azul," the Blue House.  Her work has been celebrated internationally as emblematic of Mexican national and indigenous traditions, and by feminists for its uncompromising depiction of the female experience and form. 

 Mexican culture and tradition are important in her work, which has been sometimes characterized as native art or folk art .Her work has also been described as surrealist 
but Frida 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 of which were 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. Kahlo suggested, "I paint myself because I am so often alone and because I am the subject I know best.”



Frida painted this painting in August of 1940 when she and Diego Rivera divorced. She didn't finish this painting until the year of 1943. This painting is also know with two other names: "Diego in My Thoughts" and "Thinking of Diego". 

This painting expresses Frida's desire to possess Diego Rivera, who continues betraying her with his affairs with other woman. But she cannot stop thinking about him. She painted a miniature portrait of him on her brow which indicating the obsessive love she has for the famous Mexican artist. In this self-portrait she is wearing Mexican traditional Tehuana costume that Diego Rivera is obsessed for. On her head she was wearing leaves and the root resembles the pattern of spider's web. It might be her thoughts that she had Diego trapped in.
