Maxed Out! by k Madison Moore Mount Pocono Pennsylvania Artist

Maxed Out!

14 x 14 Oil Painting on Canvas

Art within Art Series


Another fun take on Peter Max. When I saw Maxes  painting of the couple on the sofa I just envisioned a whole day of hard playing with Peter Max. Can you imagine how much fun it would be to visit his studio? Now this couple is all pooped out from being out and about in the neighborhood ( Max painting out the window), maybe playing a long game of basketball and listening to music. Now their resting on the beautiful red painted sofa that Max painted for them enjoying a bottle of wine while the
wall ladies look on,  Can you see them?

I rarely use pink on my palette but it just seemed to fit for this composition and I love to see it with red.

Peter Max (born Peter Max Finkelstein, October 19, 1937) is a  German-born Jewish American artist best known for his iconic art style in the 1960's.

His life’s adventure began in Germany, then from the age of one, can be mapped across China, Tibet, Israel and France, before he reached his ultimate destination, America. With a pan-cultural background such as this for a budding artist, it was inevitable that his work would become so rich and minifold.

One of the most famous living artist's, Peter Max is also a pop culture icon. His bold colors, uplifting images and uncommon artistic diversity have touched almost every phase of American culture and has inspired many generations.

Peter Max has painted for 6 U.S. Presidents. His art is on display in Presidential Libraries and U.S. Embassies.   Max has painted Lady Liberty annually since America's Bicentennial. A collage of his Liberties adorned 145 million Verizon phone books.

Max has been named an official artist of the 2006 U.S. Olympic Team at the Winter Olympics in Turin, Italy. He has also been Official Artist of 5 Super Bowls, World Cup USA, The World Series, The U.S. Open, The Indy 500, The NYC Marathon and The Kentucky Derby.

His art has flown the skies on a Continental Airlines 777 Super Jet. His installations include a 600-ft stage for the Woodstock Music Festival, a giant mural for the Winter Olympics and 10-ft guitars for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

It's interesting how the people blend in here. It's a stark opposite to the boldness of other areas of the painting and draws you into the painting even harder.
