Heinrich Hirt mostly concentrated on children as his subjects, and walking through an exhibit of his paintings would feel like you were surrounded by childhood laughter and innocence.  Heinrich was born in Furth, Germany where his father owned a comb factory.  Art seemed to run in the family; his older brother Johann Christian Hirt was a sculptor and attended the Munich Academy of Art.  Heinrich settled in Munich and exhibited his work throughout Germany, primarily in Berlin, Munich and Dresden.

For this month’s Living Skirt Art, I sewed Annie a much needed new skirt!  She’s grown so much over the summer that a new long knit skirt for fall was in order.  I used the Girl’s Jocole Yoga A-line skirt pattern and some basic chocolate colored knit fabric from JoAnn’s.  This shirt goes with several tops Annie has that she’s outgrown the matching skirts to, like this Family Reunion top by Oliver+S (details here.)
