Dali Time, Inspired by Salvador Dali, by k Madison Moore

Dali Time
11 x 14 Oil Painting on canvas

Art within Art Series

Well I am finally back to painting after a very long and serious illness. For 5 weeks I had a really bad flu with high fever, that turned into bronchitis that turned into phenomena. My husband had it too. It was the sickest I have been in over 20 years and was scary at times.

All I could think about when I was sick was time. All the time I was loosing painting, designing, online, researching, marketing and so on. Time to get more medicine, time to get more tea, time to turn the heat up to 1000 degrees, time, time , time!! It snowed here in the Pocono Mountains the whole time too!

At least my brain was still working while nothing else was. So with all this said about time, of course I thought of Dali and his crazy clocks. While laying there trying to sleep with no success I decided  to design a Dali in my head. I was too sick to even quickly sketch it so having to keep all the details in my head, I finally fell asleep as I forgot for a few minutes how lousy I felt. I dreamed about Dail and time and in the am, "Time for Dali" was ready to go as soon as I was!!

The book titles here are Dali, Clocks and Time.
I love to sit in front of my fireplace with a stack of art history and artist biography books and sip and nice wine while I read and live vicariously through the artists.
No, I do not do "everything" online. It is still nice to read a book.

This is how I create a lot of my paintings. Can you image a whole wall like this that is a giant clock? Mr clock in the corner has a personality of his own and almost looks like he has an attitude!  Hummmm.... wonder who that guy is sitting on the sofa? Can be anyone we want it to be! Enjoy!

Thanks to all my friends, fans an collectors that sent such good wishes, cards and comments.
It's nice to know your loved and appreciated.

I'm moving slow...but I'm moving! Stay tuned, more to come.

Salvador Domènec Felip Jacint Dalí i Domènech, Marquis of Dalí de Púbol (May 11, 1904 – January 23, 1989), commonly known as Salvador Dalí (Catalan pronunciation: was a prominent Spanish Catalan surrealist painter born in Figureres.

Out of the hundreds of paintings created by Salvador Dali, his iconic depiction of melting clocks is no doubt the most famous.
Entitled The Persistence of Memory, this painting served as both an outlet for his imagination and a simple allegory—that time is meaningless.
Dali claimed (like most surrealists) that his images were “dream sequences” or inspired by his subconscious. Surrealism was a popular movement in the mid-1900s that attempted to create art which was “truer” than life. They did this by avoiding logic and reason, which were considered hindrances to creativity. It’s an idea which is still somewhat believed today.

"Sitting with Picasso", by k Madison Moore, Mt Pocono PA Artist

Sitting with Picasso

11 x 14 Oil Painting on Canvas

Art within Art Series


I have had so many requests to paint more Art within Art of particular
artists. Here is another Picasso.
Thanks to all my fans and collectors for your suggestions and
letting me know what your favorite artists are. I am happy to design
works after these wonderful artists and never seem to run out of ideas.
This series is so much fun!

Here we have six of Picasso's ladies sitting and waiting...possibly
for the man himself? I always wonder why he painted their faces
in such a distorted way? Is this really how he saw them? Was this
through the eyes of a sober man? Was he laughing when he painted
them? LOL! I was!

This painting was completed last week before the flu hit my entire
family again so it will be a little while before I post another. I am
just getting a bit of steam back so hopefully will be back in the studio
again and painting soon. "Sitting with Picasso" is dry and ready to
ship.  Enjoy!

Check out Picasso's full name: Wow!

Pablo Diego José Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno María de los Remedios Cipriano de la Santísima Trinidad Ruiz y Picasso known as Pablo Ruiz Picasso
 25 October 25,1881 – April 8,1973) was a  Spanish Painter and Draughtsman,
 and Sculptor  who lived most of his adult life in France. He is best known
for co-founding the Cubistmovement and for the wide variety of styles embodied
 in his work.

In 1907 Picasso painted Les Demoiselles d’Avignon (Mus. of Modern
Art, New York City), a radical departure from the artistic ideas of the
 preceding ages and now considered the most significant work in the
development toward cubism and modern abstraction (see modern art).
 The influence of Cézanne and of African sculpture is apparent in its
 fragmented forms and unprecedented distortions.

In his later years Picasso turned to creations of fantasy and comic
invention. He worked consistently in sculpture, ceramics, and in the
 graphic arts, producing thousands of superb drawings, illustrations,
 and stage designs. With unabated vigor he painted brilliant variations
 on the works of other masters, including Delacroix and Velázquez,
and continued to explore new aspects of his personal vision until his death.

“Unlike in music, there are no child prodigies in painting. What
 people regard as premature genius is the genius of childhood.
.It gradually disappears as they get older. It is possible for
such a child to become a real painter one day, perhaps even a
great painter. But he would have to start right from the
beginning.genius. My first drawings could never have
been shown at an exhibition of children’s drawings.
 I lacked the clumsiness of a child, his naivety. I made
academic drawings at the age of seven, the minute precision
of which frightened me.” -- Picasso.
