I would like to present my hand painted oil on canvas painting (recreation) of the artwork BEFORE THE CELEBRATION 1. 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:


Enigmatic understatement

Among various framed pictures of nature, parks and gardens, this one definitely stands out. It offers a mystery to unravel, a question to answer: what is the story behind it? What is this celebration to come? Does it make the person in the picture full of expectation and anticipation of joy, or not? Actually, everybody is free to make up their own stories that seem more interesting and exciting to them, so we can only bring forward our vision (which does not claim to fit with everyone, sure!).

Joyful colors and a touch of melancholy

Leonid Afremov’s framed pictures are not just nice details for the interior. They are works of true art which is always deep and meaningful, hence they require your special attention and desire to become the part of their world. This world of art is really fascinating, and here are reasons why:

1.            As in reality, Leonid Afremov’s works combine happy and sad moments, positive and negative emotions. However – and that’s the beauty of this world – positive feelings always prevail in his paintings.

2.            The artist never tells the whole story leaving us the opportunity to become co-authors of the picture. If you wish, you may write a whole novel about this upcoming celebration!

3.            The expressive way of conveying his message proves Leonid Afremov as one of the best experts in the field of emotions.

Distinguishing features of the picture

We could write a really long list of these features but we are not willing to bore you. Just some ideas that seem interesting to us:

·                    This picture offers scope for imagination. The untold story that lies behind it gives you an opportunity to explore this made-up world of the painting and come up with your variants of the beginning and the end of this tale.

·                    It will be your source of inspiration if you like understatements in artworks and find them very appealing.

·                    Being a 100% hand-painted picture, it will make your interior (or your art collection) unique and special. This kind of art frames our world and makes it a better place.


The only thing to add is that this painting is likely to find a way to your heart easily. We hope it will give you countless moments of joy and peaceful meditation!

I just received my painting today "Winter Forest". I had never ordered an art on line, so I was very anxious. It came on time, beautifully wrapped . The painting is beautiful and exactly as expected. the colors are very muted , so I am very tempted to order something more colorful. This picture makes me very happy . ca not wait to frame it and put it on my wall. great job and Thank you. Love your promotions.

I have read a lot lately about Mr Afremov's marketing and his business. I'm not sure how he can keep up with orders and produce paintings every day when he has a potential customer base of hundreds of millions of people worldwide. However, in saying that, I placed my order for the above painting in early March. It took about 3-4 weeks to ship (which seemed acceptable) and arrived promptly from Mexico within a few days, which seemed fast. The painting quality looks comparable with the picture online, and generally I am very satisfied with the production quality. I'm aware it is a relatively quick and easy-to-paint artwork; but overall, I'm happy and would even buy another.

We just received our 45th painting from our favorite master. The Sun of Sicily is amazing! Glorious colors, lots of depth and texture, so vibrant and full of life! It is a perfect complement to our collection. The way Leonid captures the light, sun, Sky, architecture, and spirit of the Mediterenean is simply breathtaking. Every room in our house welcomes us with color and joy. Material things rarely make me happy, but these masterpieces absolutely do. Each is transporting and inspiring. Pure joy. Do yours of a favor and buy a few. All our friends are now collectors. It's addictive! Many thanks to the entire Afremov family. Top-notch customer service. You simply can't go wrong and the smallest issue is immediately addressed to ensure your full satisfaction. None better! Dr Lani Kass
