You must understand my delight at being able to find and buy a copy of Alley by the Lake after years of searching. I cannot believe that just a year ago, I was in a Walmart in Iraq after being informed that they had an unlimited supply of these paintings. I ad also heard that Leonid Afremov himself was a slave in one of the Walmart's sweatshops. This completely outraged me, but I found it to be nothing but a simple hoax! After escaping the Taliban successfully, I came back home to find this website and was able to order it using the magic of technicalology! Thanks my lucky stars for gugle and beeng!

I BOUGHT AN ORIGINAL OIL PAINTING BUT THEY SENT ME A REPRODUCTION PRINT INSTEAD. WHEN I CALLED THEY TOLD ME THAT THEY HAD THE ORIGINAL AND WOULD SEND IT. I AGAIN GOT A REPRODUCTION PAINTING. WHILE THE REPRODUCTIONS ARE BEAUTIFUL I PAID FOR AN ORIGINAL THAT I NEVER RECIEVED. ALSO GETTING AHOLD OF SOMEONE TO TALK TO WAS NOT THE EASIEST EITHER.
WISH I WASN'T DISAPPOINTED -

I received a beautiful depiction of a "Rainy Wedding." The palette used to make this wonderful painting is simply incredibly -- you have ranges of soft blues to royal blues -- light oranges to rich oranges -- colors that seek to evoke your deepest imagination. This painting makes me happy, and, for that, I thank you very much Leonid. I look forward to adding more to my collection (recently ordered "Lovers").
