I remember I was on Amazon.com looking for artwork for my walls at home. I don't remember which painting I came across, all I know is that when I saw Mr. Afremov's painting, I was stunning, gasped and my jaw dropped and I stared at the painting for a very long time. I had to know who the artist was so I went online and learned all about Mr. Afremov and his struggle to paint what he wanted and to sell his painting how he wanted. You have arrived Mr. Afremov. I am honored and excited to own several of your paintings in my home. Thank you for signing the back of my paintings, that is an awesome gift to your fans.
