about this painting:


Happiness found in Northern Palmyra

Among plenty of works made on painting canvas for sale, cityscapes depicting well-known sights stand high. Spectacular views of palaces and cathedrals are widely popular, as well as streets and panoramas. This picture poetizes special charm of Saint Petersburg’s rivers and channels framed with lines of old buildings. If you are ready to open your heart to this city, it will make you happy!

The Pearl of the North

It is nearly impossible to convey breathtaking beauty of this city onto a painting canvas. However, Leonid Afremov is equal to this challenge! He refused to paint glossy views like the ones distributed in the form of touristic souvenirs. This artist usually searches for deep insights into the essence of this or that city. Saint Petersburg is depicted not as one of the most beautiful cities in the world, but as a unique world full of mysteries and contradictions that charm everyone who steps in.

1.            Splendor of the former empire capital is combined with a carefree, even a little childish mood. St Petersburg is relatively young, so you can always feel this boyish vivaciousness behind its majestic front pieces.

2.            It is not rainy and gray, but quite the other way round. Leonid Afremov has a keen eye on spotting various shades, so he managed to convey the festivity of the city with his wide palette.

3.            This beauty is not cold and detached. Everyone will feel welcome here, as the atmosphere is very hospitable. What is more, thousands of couples find the Venice of the North no less romantic than the original Southern one!

What else should be noticed?

Buying this picture, you do not purchase just a nice piece of wall art. This kind of painting is something more than that:

·                    It is a source of positive emotions and inspiration. Avid travelers and dreamers are going to find it particularly appealing.

·                    This is a 100% hand-painted work of art which will not stand unnoticed. Neither will your taste and sense of beauty!

·                    The view is picturesque and harmonious, so you will find pleasure contemplating it every day.

We truly hope that this bridge will lead you to happiness and become your personal symbol of positive change.

Only after ordering City By The Lake did I watch a video of you painting a recreation and read some reviews. One review in particular had me worried. I didn't expect the painting to be as detailed as the original but I hoped I hadn't made a mistake placing the order. I have just received it. I am thrilled to say it has MASSIVELY exceeded my expectations. It is almost as detailed as the original and without a side by side comparison could be mistaken for it. It is truly stunning. Thank you so much.

I love the work of artist Leonid Afremov. It is true and fresh. It reveals love, happiness, and one's inner world. The work comes alive as you look at it. Recently I received my painting "By the Lake" on time and in great condition! The customer service was excellent. Svetlana MacKenzie. December, 8th 2016
