Usually we turn to the masters of long ago for inspiration for our Living Skirt Art series.  But today, our featured artist is still living.  Vladimir Volegov was born in Russia and began painting at the tender young age of 3!  From painting portraits in the streets of Barcelona to exhibitions in Russia, his home country, the paintings of Vladimir Volegov are known far and wide.  After you’ve seeing his vibrant use of color and his realistic depictions of people, it’s pretty obvious why his paintings have such allure.  He currently works with the American publishing house Soho Editions.  His website (and complete beautiful gallery) can be viewed here.

Although many, many of Vladimir Volegov’s paintings depict females in skirts, we chose to bring his painting At The Piano to life today.  Originally painted in 2008, this is an oil painting.  To recreate that beautiful flowing white skirt, we refashioned two skirts into one.  Aria didn’t necessarily want a white skirt, but we decided if it gets stained, or she wants a different color, we can give it a dye bath.

For the girl’s top, we hacked one of our favorite patterns, the Lane Raglan, into a cropped, 3/4 sleeve cardigan.  Tutorial coming soon, really!  The heavenly French Terry Fabric (Aruba Blue) is from JoAnn Fabrics. (affiliate link)

Aria is teaching herself to play the piano, and it is really a pleasure to listen to.  I love to listen to her play the piano because she pours her whole heart into the piece she is playing, and it’s so moving to hear her play.

  1. This is so beautiful! I love the painting you chose (now I have to go look him up!) and your photograph is just lovely!

  2. Beautifully done!! I love the painting you chose!

  3. Simply beautiful!

  4. Just so lovely, but this gramma really wants to “hear” the music too! Almost realistic enough to accomplish that if I close my eyes too.
    You did a marvelous job on recreating the painting – bravo!

  5. CHIC . . . And FABulous long white skirt you’ve fashioned for your daughter! Surprised me when I saw the painting, At the Piano, so BRAVO! Thanks for sharing!
