about this painting:


Happy Carelessness

Leonid Afremov’s painting depicts perhaps the happiest moment in the life of every person – the one that are remembered for a lifetime. Such moments usually occur in childhood – sooner or later. So at first glance, by no means remarkable moments become memorable for life. The one depicted in the painting is just such a one – the children, a boy and a girl, feed the ducks on the lake. For their image, as well as the image of the landscape as a whole, the artist used a lot of bright colors – these are green grass of a lawn, slightly tucked in autumn colors, the blue paints of the lake and bright children's clothes – the girl is dressed in a light yellow shirt just of the color of the boy’s panama. Squatting down the girl gives food to the ducks, the boy is doing the same. Let's hope that their parents are somewhere nearby and control the actions of the children, although they are already quite adult.

A lot of fun

The kids can make our lives more unpredictable and funny, and sometimes even crazy, but incredibly happy. They easily manage to win us over with their own spontaneity, trust in peace and sincerity. There is no one in the world more fragile and helpless than our newborn child. As it turned out, babies are in fact incredibly capable and strong creatures. Scientists managed to prove many facts about parents and their children many of you did not know about. Here are some of them:

  1. In European countries, the average age of parents is 29.
  2. The youngest parents were only 8 and 9 years old.
  3. Recently it has become quite popular to give unusual names to children.
  4. Very often, the parents from the USA and Europe name their children after famous idols or world brands.
  5. For each inhabitant of the planet, there are on average 30 Lego elements.
  6. Sultan Ismail from Morocco has the largest number of children.
  7. A newborn baby does not see blue.

We hope that Childhood, this amazing artwork, will make you tenderly remember your own childhood, and you will plunge into the world of pleasant memories and dreams.

Your paintings are a real inspiration to me. I first came across your work on DeviantART and was entranced. As someone who suffers from severe depression, the color and life in your paintings transfers to me when it seems I need it most. keep up the wonderful work I look forward to purchasing many more in the future!
