about this painting:
A soothing painting
Those who are looking for a piece of canvas painting for sale usually want to buy some canvas where quiet nature is depicted, for a house is a place where a man is supposed to rest from his labours. If so, this magnificent painting by Leonid Afremov is what you need to fill your room with the brilliant atmosphere of the vast expanses of quiet water and the sky.
The blue tranquillity
In this marvellous example of canvas painting we can see a small vessel amid the endless blueness of the sea and the sky. The sun stands motionless in the sky, with its rays fallen to pieces around and got stuck in the solid air. The surface of the sea turns the sun into a burning stripe that springs from the sea-line and stretches out up to the place where the beholder is supposed to stand. This stripe resembles a path the beholder can take and thus reach the edge of the emotional sky whose rich blue cup hangs over the tranquil water. No man is seen on the vessel that, having no sail, fluently rests on the mirror-like surface of the sea. This perfect painting by Leonid Afremov wants us to appreciate the delicious moment of the calm and discovers the quiet beauty of four elements that are peacefully united in this canvas.
The peace of four elements
This impressive canvas painting represents four elements:
The element of Water is represented here as quiet sea.
The element of Air is represented as the sky.
The element of Fire is depicted here as the sun and its rays.
Eventually, the element of Earth is represented in the canvas as a vessel, for it is produced by a man, who inhabits the Earth and is bound up with this element.
The union of these four elements is the cosmos as it is seen by Old Greeks who used to see the whole universe as such a union. This magnificent painting by Leonid Afremov is therefore a kind of cosmos devoid of contradictions that is opposed to our chaotic modern life full of contradictions and discord. This fine artwork will become a true decoration of any room and will fill you with conciliation and peace of mind.
