Salvador Dali Inspired Painting, Watching Time by k Madison Moore

Watching Time
Inspired by Salvador Dali

Painting with The Masters
14 x 18 Dali oil painting on canvas

I recently painted an 8 x 8 Dali Inspired chair for my new 
Collectable Chairs Series "Take Seat. That painting inspired this painting. I love when that happens and now from this I have
yet another idea that I may paint at some point.

I love clocks so I love Dali too. 
I found a few titles for his Eye painting:
Subconscious Mind, Surrealist, Dreams, Subconscious.  
He sure did have a strange way of  "seeing things!"

The Persistence of Memory  is one of his most recognizable works. The painting has been in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New Your City, which received it from an anonymous donor. It is widely recognized and frequently referenced in popular culture and sometimes referred to by more descriptive (though incorrect) titles, such as 'The Soft 
Watches' or The Melting Watches.

The well-known Surrealist piece introduced the image of the soft melting socket watch.   Dali stated that the soft watches were inspired by the surrealist perception of a  Camembert  melting in the sun.

Salvador Dalí was born Salvador Felipe Jacinto Dalí y Domenech on May 11, 1904, in Figueres, Spain.
From an early age, Dalí was encouraged to practice his art and would eventually go on to study at an academy in Madrid. In the 1920s, he went to Paris and began interacting with artists such as Picasso, Magritte and Miro, which led to Dalí's first Surrealist phase. He is perhaps best known for his 1931 painting The Persistence of Memory, showing melting clocks in a landscape setting. 

The rise of fascist leader Francisco Franco in Spain led to the artist's expulsion from the Surrealist movement, but that didn't stop him from painting. Dalí died in 1989.

If you have an idea for a special painting just for you
or you would like me to design one for you, contact
me with your ideas or the artist that inspired you.
