In The Round with Kandinsky, after Wassily Kandinsky, by k Madison Moore Mount Pocono Pennsylvania Artist

In The Round with Kandinsky

11 x 14 Oil Painting on Canvas
Art within Art Series


Ahhhhh....feels so good to be finally painting and posting again. April is so busy with everyone doing taxes and the holidays. I took the rest of my time in April to get my studio back together with the new tables and shelving, finished up a lot of commission projects and did several new paintings. Now I am ready to roll again!

With all the running around I have been doing I sometimes feel like I am going in circles, especially with the remodel of my house in between taking forever and everything else that I have been doing so I guess this painting reflects just that.

I love circles anyway. Even many pieces of my jewelry are circles. Hummm. is that a good thing? The world is round, the sun is round, the wedding ring is round, the circle of life...I guess it's all good!

Kandinsky is so cool. He felt the colors. He said he actually heard  music with each color he painted. Each color had it's own tune. When I read this I immediately had an idea for yet another Kandinsky painting  that I will be doing in the future. Stay tuned.  Enjoy!

Wassily Wasilyevich Kandinsky was born on December, 16th (4), 1866 in Moscow, in a well-to-do family of a businessman in a good cultural environment. In 1871 the family moved to Odessa where his father ran his tea factory. There, alongside with attending a classical gymnasium (grammar school), the boy learned to play the piano and the cello and took to drawing with a coach. "I remember that drawing and a little bit later painting lifted me out of the reality", he wrote later. In Kandinsky's works of his childhood period we can find rather specific color combinations, which he explained by the fact that "each color lives by its mysterious life". Dies: December 1944

Wassily Kandinsky was one of the most original and influential artists of the twentieth-century. His "inner necessity" to express his emotional perceptions led to the development of an abstract style of painting that was based on the non-representational properties of color and form. Kandinsky's compositions were the culmination of his efforts to create a "pure painting" that would provide the same emotional power as a musical composition. The exhibition "Kandinsky: Compositions", organized by Magdalena Dabrowski and on display at the Los Angeles County Art Museum until September 3, 1995, presents these monumental works together for the first and possibly last time and provides an opportunity to witness the creative process of Kandinsky.
