Silk is the fabric of the soul. On it, Yelena Sidorova pours paint in colorful sheets that shimmer and glisten with emotion. The process of painting on silk requires a delicate approach. Yelena has the gentleness required to weave mysteriously provocative paintings. She says, “I transform the world around me: every drop of dye on silk is one drop of magic into my existence.”

Hey, Elane! Thank you very much for your kind compliments about the paintings as well.I am glad to hear that you and your husband happy to have them at home. It is very encouraging. Will be happy to see you in my store again. With very warm wishes , Yelena.
Dear Yelena! Thanks for your kind words! If fact, I liked "Warm Winter Companions" even more than "How to be Happy Girl" (if that's even possible!). What a gorgeous creation! The colors and details are impeccable!. The two paintings complement each other beautifully and me and my husband could not be happier! I will keep checking your work and I am sure I will fall in love with another painting soon. Thanks again Yelena!!!!!
Hello, Dear Elane! I am a true crazy cat lady too! I have two cats in my home. I love painting them and enjoy having them around. I am so happy to hear you liked the painting in person! Hope it will light up your home and bring positive energy, and I hope that Warm Winter Companions will not disappoint you either. Thank you very much, Yelena
As a true crazy cat lady, I typed "cat" in the search of Ugallery and I was amazed by the incredible colorful world of Yelena! I immediately fell in love with "How to happy girl"... this painting spoke directly to my heart and I ordered the same day I saw it. I received it yesterday and loved it!!! Thanks Yelena for your sensibility and for including these blessed creatures in your pantings! I have my eyes in my next purchase "Warm Winter Companions".
Love our new vibrant and whimsical painting. A bit Chagal-esque. Thank you Yelena and Stephanie (U Gallery)!
Thank you Karen! That is very touching comment about your other half reaction. I am very glad to hear that my paintings found a home. And you are both like it. With very warm wishes .
Stunning painting with lots of detail! Even my other half noticed this painting immediately upon installation. I have two paintings that were installed in my family room that took him a full week+ to notice, but he noticed and commented on how much he liked this painting the first day. Thank you so much, we really love it!
I am very happy to hear that you like painting in person! I hope that it will bring a warm smile to your home ! Nothing spesial needs to be taken for care of the painting. The paints for silk is very strong colors you can wash it, it does't come of.Just a light dusting.Thank you very much for your purchase.
Hi Yelena, I just received this stunning painting. It is so beautiful! I love how the background is muted as if it's out of focus and the birds stand out in relief. Wow! The colors are truly amazing. Thank you so much for taking extra care in the packing as well! Please tell me if there is something special that needs to be done to prevent the silk from deteriorating or if there are any maintenance issues I should be aware of. Thank you so much!
Thank you very much for admiring my paintings! I am happy to hear that.
I love your art! Amazing colours!
Hi Yelena- It was so nice to hear from you and Alfama.Lisbon and all of your "city/town paintings are beautiful. The two I have from you light up my room with color and interest and everyone who has seen them, loves them. I better not get another at the moment as I am running out of space. Thanks and I have no doubts that you will sell all of your fine paintings. Cheers, Frank
Dear Frank! Hope you are doing well and still enjoy my paintings! Just wanted to recommend you look at the painting in my collection, "Alfama. Lisbon. Portugal Vine." This painting was designed as a complementary painting for the Alfama painting that you already have in your collection. It is not necessarily a diptych, but if you still have space in your collection it may create a good addition to it! Thank you very much for your previous purchase. Cheers, Yelena
I am glad to hear that you experience joy when looking at the painting. That is a great compliment! Yes, Prague is a beautiful town! You won't regret if you decide to visit someday! Thank you very much for your purchase. Hope to see you again in my store sometime. Cheers, Yelena
Thank you! I love looking at the 'Old Mill, Prague" hanging on the wall. I feel a sense of joy when I study features of this artwork. I hope to visit Prague someday.
Today I received the second of Yelena's paintings and I am just as pleased as I was with the first. I chose another village scene, "Little Village in France" which had the blue effect and size that fit so nicely in my growing art room. Thank you Yelena and a Happy New Year to you. Cheers, Frank
Hello Dear Frank! I am happy to hear such nice compliments about my paintings. I am also glad you like the painting that you purchased when you saw it in person. I know that silk paintings can be surprising because of how much more beautifully they appear in real life. I also see you bought a second painting today!!! Thank you very much and Happy Holidays!
Dear Yelena- I am an old timer but somewhat new to the art world. Recently I discovered Ugallery and your work stood out. I just had to have some and ordered Alfama Lisbon as a Christmas present to myself. It just lights up the room with its vibrant colors and technique. Ill be back for more. Happy New Year!
