Connoisseur Wine Masters Series Coffee Table Art Book, by k Madison Moore

Segment Two Connois...
By k. Madison Moore ...

This is my New Coffee Table Art Book
Painting with The Masters - Segment Two
Connoisseur Wine Masters

I just love doing these books for my Collectors.
 I try to do at least one a year around the holidays.
They make such wonderful gifts for those that you
do not know what to buy for. All the paintings
are full color and Blurb does great quality.

The image is printed right on the beautiful hard cover.
You also have the option for a softback or a paper
image wrap cover and different qualities of paper.
In the past you could not Preview the entire book,
only the first few pages. This year they made that
change where you can see the entire book, which 
really is much nicer. I like to see what I am buying!

Click Preview on the small image to see the book.
You can also purchase it there if you like it.

This year is The Connoisseur Wine Masters Series
I know I have many collectors that collected this series
so they will be happy to have this beautiful book for their
coffee tables.


If you have questions please feel free to

Matisse Inspired Painting, Secret Lover by k Madison Moore

Secret Lover
Inspired by Henri Matisse

48 x 60
Oil Painting on Canvas

Art within Art Series


I Have always had an attraction for hats. I just love
Big Hats! If I lived in the time when women wore
hats all the time I would have had an entire wardrobe
of them. I never wear them because I look terrible in
them. Maybe that why I'm attracted!
On this painting I used softer colors then I
usually use but still with a lot of depth of color
created by using several layers of glazes in many
colors. It creates an interesting effect.
Wonder who the Secret Lover is?
Maybe Miss Lady in the Matisse paintings
will tell us?


Matisse Life
Henri Emile Benoît Matisse was born in a tiny, tumbledown weaver's cottage on the rue du Chêne Arnaud in the textile town of Le Cateau-Cambrésis at eight o'clock in the evening on the last night of the year, 31 December 1869 (Le Cateau-Cambrésis  is in the extreme north of  France near the Belgian border). The house had two rooms, a beaten earth floor and a leaky roof. Matisse said long afterwards that rain fell through a hole above the bed in which he was born. Matisse’s ancestors had lived in the area for centuries before the convulsive social and industrial upheavals of the nineteenth century. Matisse grew up in a world that was still detaching itself from a way of life in some ways unchanged since Roman times. The coming of the railway had put Bohain on the industrial map, but people still traveled everywhere on foot or horseback.

Stolen Picasso And Matisse Works Possibly
'Crushed In A Rubbish Truck'

It was the perfect heist: sleeping museum guards, a broken alarm system, $140 million in loot, a police hunt that lasted over a year... there was just one problem. The paintings, including a Picasso and Matisse, ended up in the trash; according to The Guardian, while the investigation was underway, one of the suspects "panicked and destroyed the canvasses before throwing them into a rubbish bin."
Early in the morning of May 20, 2010, a lone, masked burglar entered the Paris Museum of Modern Art by removing the screws of a window, originally intending to steal Fernand Leger's 'Still Life With Candlestick.' However upon cutting the painting from its frame, he discovered the alarm was broken; it was later discovered that the alarm had been broken for over a month prior to the theft. He then proceeded to walk around the museum for over an hour, picking up four more paintings on the way and getting away in a nearby parked car. There were security cameras but no guards noticed the masked visitor.

Peter's Piano- Bragging time! by k Madison Moore

 Peter's Piano

Homage to Peter Max

Art within Art Series

 Peter's Piano - Homage to Peter Max was a really popular
painting this year. I repainted similar...but not the same
paintings several times. I like to make each on it's own
original so I make small changes. Since Peter is still
a living artist I really change a lot of the elements
from his work to what I would have done to make
them my originals out of respect for him.
Thank you Peter Max!

My Collector Tom's friend Dawne, ordered this
painting from me several months ago for Tom's
birthday. Last year Tom purchased a Matisse
Art within Art painting from me and just loved it.
(On the back wall)
When Dawne ordered Peter's Piano she did no know 
that Tom mentioned to me that this was going to be
the next one he purchased from me so it was
a shocking surprise to him when he received
it for his birthday.

I have to say I am very blessed that I receive many
beautiful, kind emails about my work but this one
really touched my heart and no-one has ever said
these things to me. I just wanted to share this with you
and had to brag a bit!
Thanks so much Tom and Dawne.
I am thrilled about this.

Hi Madison,

I want to tell you how surprised, and THRILLED, I was to receive the Max’s Piano painting from the always attentive, and inspiring, love of my life, Dawne.  I had no idea what was coming, of course, and as I opened the present, I opened it from the rear, so I quickly discovered it was some sort of painting, but when I finally saw WHICH painting I was SO happy, SO very pleased!  It’s perfect, and certainly my favorite painting of the few that I own, and probably one of the best of all I’ve ever seen.  It’s just wonderful!

 Sometimes I go the daily painters gallery, select your name from the list of artists, and am just overwhelmed, every time, by the colorful and eclectic body of work that assembles on the page.  It is truly amazing, and a museum of just your work would be a really amazing thing, on par with any assembly of art anywhere, including the artists that you so whimsically, and so complimentariy,
parody (if that’s the right word!).

And I really mean what I say!   Sometime, just take a look at your own body of work.  Prolific, imaginative, creative, researched, a compliment to the BROAD array of artists that you pay homage, and just plain FUN!  Your work is so far above everything else around.

And now I am privileged to own TWO K Madison Moore works!
Thanks for the painting, it is cherished.

P.S.  There is a WONDERFUL Joni Mitchell song performed by K. D. Lang.  It’s Joni’s song “Help Me”.  The song reminds me of you painting when I listen to it, though I’m not entirely sure why.  Perhaps they are of the same pop era and culture.  But the line “You danced with a lady with a hole in her stockings, didn’t it feel good?” is as whimsical and descriptive as your paintings.

Your fan,
