I would like to present my hand painted oil on canvas painting (recreation) of the artwork BEFORE SUNRISE. I made this piece with the same amount of soul and emotion just like the first original painting. This piece is created with oil paint on artistic canvas using my unique technique of a palette knife. The artwork has texture, you can feel the strokes by touching the painting. By purchasing on this site, you are buying directly from the artist Leonid Afremov. I guarantee your satisfaction and the best customer experience. 

The certificate of authenticity will include the name of the owner who purchased the piece of artwork. The certificate is signed by Leonid Afremov. If you buying this painting as a gift, please provide us the name of the gift recipient for the certificate. We can also ship to the address of the recipient of your gift.

about this painting:


Ready for a new day

Leonid Afremov’s art gallery offers many original paintings for sale online among which, even a person with the most sophisticated taste will find at least one original artwork they like. There are many landscapes, cityscapes, seascapes, and still life as well as portraits of famous musicians and dancers. Each original artwork will find its place in the interior of your apartment and be a very good addition to your art collection of original paintings.

Not a morning person

There are not many people who like mornings. Some people don’t like mornings because they have to wake up for work, others because they have to go to school. There are plenty of reasons to be not a ‘morning person’.  But is there anything good about mornings? Ask any romantic person and they will tell you that there’s nothing in the whole world that can be compared with the beauty of a sunrise or a sunset. These are two of the most beautiful natural phenomena. And this sunrise painting proves that.

Why you should consider purchasing this original artwork?

  1. The warm yellow glow of the lanterns makes the painting look very warm. It seems as if it uses its light as a blanket to shelter you from the rain. It makes you feel more comfortable. Yellow according to color psychology is believed to be uplifting and offer happiness and hope.
  2. They say the darkest time is before the sun rises. We can clearly see this in the painting as the night sky has a very deep blue color. Leonid Afremov made it look incredibly picturesque with his special palette knife technique. In some places we can still see some stars shining brilliantly with different colors and sending us their hello from faraway.
  3. The glassy wet pavement reflects this carnival of colors as a giant mirror.
  4. We can see that the night is going to be overcome by the daylight soon as the dark blue color is fading and becoming much lighter on the horizon. 

Silhouettes of houses and trees are becoming more and more visible as the sun begins to rise in the east. The sleepy silence of the city is gradually changing into its daily chaos. A new day has come. It has brought new ideas, dreams, happy moments as well as sorrows, tears and sad news. But we still need to appreciate that this day was given to us.

I just received my painting in South Africa and it's already been paraded around. I am so happy I decided to purchase it, and with the free painting special I received with my next purchase, I will be sure to add some more of Leonid's paintings to my name

I purchased my first painting from Mr Afremov in December and from then until now, I have a total of 6 pieces. They're all beautiful and unique and bring me so much happiness. It's not easy to wait for the shipments because I get too excited but all are worth the wait. I feel lucky to be able to own some of your work Mr Afremov! Thank you so much for sharing your incredible talent!

I promised myself that I would comment on my experience purchasing a painting from Mr. Afremov, good or bad. I have read so many negative comments on other sites (as well as positive ones). I can truly say that, from start to finish, our experience has been amazing. Mr. Afremov’s team is fabulous – such great customer service (very compassionate and dedicated to making us happy). Delivery was as promised. And the painting is just so beautiful to us, so meaningful. It is art at its finest…I wasn’t looking for the exact same painting pictured on the web-site (and it is VERY clearly indicated that it will not be on the site!). I was looking for something that spoke to us, a one-of-a-kind, and it was delivered. The more we stare at it, the more it speaks to us. We will cherish it forever. I have already ordered two more (again, amazing customer service). I am recommending his beautiful work to everyone else I know. It almost seemed too good to be true - I can promise you it is true.
