Henri Rousseau Inspired Interior Painting By k Madison Moore Welcome to My jungle Again

Welcome to My Jungle - Again

Inspired by Henri Rousseau


Painting with The Masters
Art within Art Series


16 x 20 Interior Oil Painting on Canvas

I loved to do puzzles when I was a kid.
Once in awhile you would see a photo with
several hidden elements in it that you had to find.
I would not give up until I found every single one.

I really like Henri Rousseau and his funny animals
and jungle paintings. I did a lot of research on his
work for this composition. See if you can find the 35
animals that are in this painting. I had a blast painting
this one but with all of the details it was never ending.

Whom ever purchases this painting will get a diagram
of where to find all of the animals. This is a fun painting
for everyone, kids and adults and surely a great
conversation piece.
Have fun!

Here is the list:

White Bird
Robin Bird
Indian Flute Woman
 3 Butterflies
3 Lions
4 Monkeys
2 Raccoons
2 Mice
2 Parrots
Big Bird

Henri Rousseau: Jungles in Paris was a visually exciting, important exhibition.

Interior Painting Inspired by Matisse The Samovar by k Madison Moore

The Samovar

Inspired by Matisse


Painting with The Masters

11 x 14 Interior Oil Painting on canvas

Visit My Portfolio Here

 I have seen Matisse use this element ( Samovar) 
in many of his paintings and even though I didn't know
what is was I still used it as I liked the shape.
I assumed it was some kind
of heater and he obviously liked them.

Matisse being a French artist and this being mostly
Russian must have had a special reason for using it
so many times in his paintings. I wonder what that 
was? I assumed it was for tea or for heating and I wasn't
too far off. Read about it below.

This is s fun painting with the reflect of what is on
the other side of the room. Of course I always
love to include Matisse's Cat somewhere too.
Hummm....wonder what she is thinking about?


The Samovar

The Samovar

The samovar was an important attribute of a Russian household and particularly well-suited to tea-drinking in a communal setting over a protracted time period. The Russian expression "to have a sit by the samovar" means to have a leisurely talk while drinking tea from a samovar. 
In everyday use samovars were an economical permanent source of hot water in older times. Various slow-burning items could be used for fuel, such as charcoal or dry pinecones. When not in use, the fire in the samovar pipe faintly smoldered. As needed it could be quickly rekindled with the help of  bellows. Although a Russian jackboot  (сапог)  could be used for this purpose, bellows were manufactured specifically for use on samovars

Another very cool addition to my Art Deco Series. I just love
the clotting styles, furniture, colors all of it, from the Deco / Nouveau
period. Can you imagine  dressing for a night on the town or a night
at Club Deco?

The gowns with all those details and the head dresses were amazing
and just the fact that they actually wore all that amazes me. I
 have close up photos below of the gowns with all the details. Hard
to show all the little things in a photo and the depth of colors.

Had a lot of fun painting tis and more to come for this series.

Picasso's Villa Veranda Studio France Interior Painting by k Madison Moore

Picasso's Villa Veranda Studio
France 1961 - 1973


Painting with The Masters Series
Masters Studios Series


14 x 18 Interior Oil painting on Canvas

Visit My Portfolio Here

This is the second painting from my new Masters Studios Series.
This is such a special series for me because it is evolving my imagination
in so many directions that the ideas are just flowing. 

The best is that I can create any kind of scene that I think the Masters
would like. I am in keeping of places in which they lived and their studios
around the world during their lives for these paintings to add a "little'

This painting from my imagination is of his Veranda Studio that he
could have or should have had at his last place of residence in his 
farm house in Mougins  Southern France from 1961 -1973
until his death.

I can imagine Pablo sitting in his Bentwood wicker Rocking Chair
at the end of a long day of working in this Vernada studio enjoying
some grapes and a glass of wine in a cozy pair of slippers.

Many of his paintings include chairs similar to his personal 
rocker that you see in so many of his studio paintings.
I thought the chair was a nice touch for this piece.

The paintings  that he was working on here are

Seated Woman 1927
Buste de Femme 1928
Jacqueline with Flowers 1939
Marie-Thérèse avec une guirlande, 1937
Courtesan woman with Necklace of Gems  1901

It was a lot of work creating the pebble stone and brick floor.
I wish all the little details would display better in a photo
because this is full of details which can certainly be more 
appreciated in hand. 

The flow of the vines on the old stone
wall against the tall arched windows just seems so fit for Picasso.
Many of his homes and studios had arches so he must have been fond
of them. I would love to have a room like this with tall windows, a dream!

The details are incredible and time consuming in this series but are so satisfying.
With this series we will travel to different countries and to imaginary spaces
The Masters. So fun!

This is also a nice size at 14 x 18. However if you would like a larger size just
email me for info.

After The Ball - The Paris Ritz

Inspired by Pablo Picasso


Painting  with The Masters 

 Art within Art Series 

16 x 20 Interior Oil Painting on Canvas

 Sold - Commission

This is a very special painting for two very special
collectors who live in Australia.  Last night's post,
The Elegance of Monet, is also their painting.

With some input from the collectors:  they went to a
ball at the Ritz Hotel in Paris France last year for New
Years Eve. It was requested that all guests wear a mask.
They sent me photos of the masks which you can see
on the coffee table. They wanted an interior of them
at "After The Ball"enjoying a bottle of Champagne.
 They requested the Eiffel Tower to reflect that they 
 were in Paris.

The champagne bottle says The Ritz Paris on the
label and they love it! Just sooo much fun to work
with the collectors and design something for them
that has so much meaning. Here's what they said:

"Well really don’t know what else to say. 
Words are just mere words and cant possibly convey
 how happy we are with the paintings. Absolutely brilliant.

So, many many many thanks from us both for
 such an amazing job on both paintings and we cant
 wait to have them hanging in our house."
Thanks so much Chris and Sandra

Love painting the Blue Nudes. This is another

This is also a new size that I am going to start using.
Really nice and for those who have many of my

Studio Matisse - Paris France Oil Painting of Interior Inspired by Henri Matisse by k Madison Moore

Studio Matisse - Paris France
Inspired by Henri Matisse]

Painting with The Masters
Masters Studio's Series


14 x 18 Interior Oil Painting on Canvas

I have been wanting to do paintings of studios that I image
for the Masters. This is the first. The fun part of this is that
these are interiors that I picture the Master would be painting
and creating in and not the real artists studios.

I did research several of the Masters studios. There are not
really many photos of their studios and the photos that I did find
were so dull and drab. Made me wonder how they created in such
depressing surroundings.

This is my studio for Matisse looking out over the colorful rooftops of
 France with the Eiffel tower in the back ground and a big flowering tree 
in front of the large window. He was born in France and worked most
of his life there. I can picture him here.

Hanging on the walls are my impression  of some of my very favorite 
Matisse paintings. I can image Matisse sitting in this comfy chair by the 
window or standing behind that easel painting this cute little lady.

Studio Matisse - Paris France


Initially trained as a lawyer, Matisse developed an interest in art only at age twenty-one. In 1891, he moved to Paris to study art and followed the traditional nineteenth-century academic path.

Discovering manifold artistic movements that coexisted or succeeded one another on the dynamic Parisian artistic scene, such as Neo Classicism, Realism, Impressionism and Neo-Ompressionism, he began to experiment with a diversity of styles, employing new kinds of brushwork, light, and composition to create his own pictorial language.

In the autumn of 1917, Matisse traveled to Nice in the south of France, and eventually settled there for the rest of his life. The years 1917–30 are known as his early Nice period, when his principal subject remained the female figure or an odalisque dressed in oriental costume or in various stages of undress, depicted as standing, seated, or reclining in a luxurious, exotic interior of Matisse's own creation. These paintings are infused with southern light, bright colors, and a profusion of decorative patterns. They emanate a hothouse atmosphere suggestive of a harem.

I found thee really great Photos Matisse when I was researching for this painting and wanted to share them.   Check them out Here

The Presence of Peter Interior Oil Painting by k Madison Moore

The Presence of Peter
Inspired by Peter Max

12 x 16 Oil Painting of Interior on Canvas

I always love to pay homage to Peter Max.
He has the greatest bright colored palette
and of course you know by now I do as well.
I love to do my take on some of his elements.

I could spend hours enveloped in this this room.
Was Peter here before me?
