about this painting:

Birch forest

Autumn grove

Autumn. What a beautiful time! Certainly, many of you like to visit the forest in the autumn, to breathe the forest clean air. But birch forests and groves have their own charm and magnificence. They are so different from the forest, where pine, spruce, aspen grow... There so much light, that you might feel that you are somewhere in the attic! The white trunks of birches are smooth, like candles. Silky green, yellow and green leaves rustle in the light wind. From time to time you hear singing, chirping and twittering of the birds which have not yet left these lands for the winter. Under the birches you can find a bit yellowed grass and even some autumn flowers, come across with some berry shrubs. And here you see a quite alley with birches growing all along it. It may seem that it leads to the very thicket of the forest. All the birches are slender and thin, like the stature of a young girl who tumbled into a green lace shawl. In the Birch Forest painting the most attentive viewer can distinguish small hollows between the birches, and currant or other berry bushes therein. Here you can feel light smell of dampness. If to look around between the trunks it can be seen that to the right and to the left the grove stretches away, whereas in the distance the opposite bank of a narrow river can be distinguished. You forget about everything and feel calm and relaxed.

Russian Spirit

In popular culture and beliefs of ancient Slavs trees have always held a special place. Even the names of groves and forests indicated their sacredness. In such, reserved places, which were, as a rule, enclosed by fence forest areas, it was forbidden to cut down trees, collect firewood, cause damage to the trees. The violation of these prohibitions led to the death of a person, cattle pestilence, crop failure. Individual trees were also respected, especially old ones, growing alone in the field or near healing springs. According to the beliefs, they protected people from:

- troubles

-  hails

-  fires

- other natural disasters.

 It is with the verb "to protect" is associated, according to linguists, the ancient Slavic name of one of the trees especially native to the Russian soul – birch (Russian “berech” and “beryoza”). Our ancestors considered it as Beregin, the mother of spirits and the defender of people. In Russia the birch was thought to be the world tree, the Earth prop, as mentioned in an ancient ritual conspiracy.

One of the Riphean Mountains, which was in the land of the Slavs, bore the name of Berezan and was a paradise. Birch branches were left in the attic or put under the roof of the house to prevent lightning, or in the garden and the field where they deterred rodents and birds acting as a guard against evil spirits.

Leonid's paintings make me so happy! I love his style, use of colour, and creative vision. He is absolutely brilliant!! I have been looking a long time for the perfect pieces of artwork, and to my delight, I finally found them on this website! The two paintings I have are "Misty Mood" and "Amsterdam 1905." They look stunning hanging up on my walls! I can't wait to buy more! :)

I am very happy with my painting. The price I paid was good and the painting looks lovely. It came well packaged in about 6 weeks (to Australia). The colours and texture make me happy every time I look at it!

I ordered 3 paintings on April 8 and received them in Australia only 14 days later - very fast shipping for an international postage. They look even more amazing in person; the photos on this website don't do them justice. Thankyou Afremov Family - I look forward to my next purchase.

My first Leonid Afremov painting was The Loneliness of Autumn. I literally sat and stared at it for about an hour when I received it, and have been so happy with it ever since! Every person that comes into my home gushes over it, and I have had many friends buy their own after seeing mine, and I recently bought another painting for a friend's wedding. Love him!
