After Six Boutique Oil Painting on Canvas by k Madison Moore

After Six Boutique

Fashion Series
16 x 20 Boutique Interior Oil Painting on Canvas

Sold - Commission

This is year another painting designed for my collectors for the 
After Six Series. I love that this series is ongoing and that the collectors
have such creative minds. It makes everything so much more fun.

My collectors wanted After Six in a boutique setting with several choices
of formal wear in many shades of mostly pinks. They also wanted her original
outfit somewhere in the piece. The hot pink shirt and the white top with pink 
and blue flowers on hangers is the from the original After Six painting.
You can see the other paintings in this series in my recent previous posts.

Now my collectors are deciding on another painting for this series. I have
so many fun choices of where she is going or will be next so stayed tuned for
more of the After Six Series.

If you have a painting in mind for the After Six Series  please email me. The series
is open for anyone that would like to jump in and add their own painting to this
series. How fun is that!

She Dreams in Blue (sequel to "The Pawnbroker's Stepdaughter")

The tiptoes on the bedroom floor
These quiet eyes are spinning in the dark
The secret wish that none will know
She keeps it locked up in her pale heart

Wait for it, it's tired and it's true
Wait for it, it's all she ever knew

She dreams in blue
Wait for it, it's all she ever knew

The background hum of city streets
And whispers from the neighbors intertwine
The distant glow of beacon lights are 
Breaking through the cracks between the blinds

Wait for it, it's hiding out of view
Wait for it, it's all she ever knew

She dreams in blue
Wait for it, it's all she ever knew

She opens up her weary eyes
The foggy cloud of vision fills the air
She strains to make some sense of all the
Abstract shapes and colors everywhere

But all the blue just fades away dissolving in a haze of grey
And lost inside her empty mind is everything she tried to find
And all the blue just fades away, she lost it in a haze of grey

She dreams in blue
Wait for it, it's all she ever knew

Portrait of Frida Kahlo in a Floral Dress Oil Painting by k Madison Moore

 Portrait of Frida Kahlo in a Floral Dress

I have so much respect and admiration for Frida Kahlo and is why I have dedicated a series to her. If you are not familiar with her please click the enclosed links to read about her life. Her life was full of physical pain from a serious accident. I can relate. I also had a serious accident with many injuries including breaking my painting arm in half. I did not paint for 5 years and had to learn so much again. Frida is an inspiration to all women artists. Yesterday was her birthday and I wanted to post this then but was a bit under the weather.

This beautiful floral portrait is my birthday gift for Frida.
Happy Birthday Frida

Frida Kahlo de Rivera born Magdalena Carmen Frieda Kahlo y Calderón; July 6, 1907 – July 13, 1954)  was a  Mexican painter who is best known for her self-portraits.[

Kahlo's life began and ended in Mexico City, in her home known as the Blue House. Her work has been celebrated in Mexico as emblematic of national and indigenous  tradition, and by feminists for its uncompromising depiction of the female experience and form.  Mexican and Amerindian cultural tradition are important in her work, which has been sometimes characterized as naive art or folk art.  Her work has also been described as surrealist, and in 1938 Andre Breton, principal initiator of the surrealist movement, described Kahlo's art as a "ribbon around a bomb".Frida rejected the "surrealist" label; she believed that her work reflected more of her reality than her dreams.

Kahlo had a volatile marriage with the famous Mexican artist Diego Rivera. She suffered lifelong health problems, many caused by a traffic accident she survived as a teenager. Recovering from her injuries isolated her from other people, and this isolation influenced her works, many of which are self-portraits of one sort or another. Kahlo suggested, "I paint myself because I am so often alone and because I am the subject I know best."  She also stated, "I was born a bitch. I was born a painter."
