This lovely canvas by the master is one of his cityscapes dedicated to such cities. It will undoubtedly be appreciated by those who like the night sceneries of sleeping citiesWall art canvas for sale.

Quiet dreaming

Looking at this magnificent wall art canvas by Leonid Afremov, we see a night avenue, and some woman making her way through the rainy gloom of night, with her umbrella protecting her from raindrops falling and covering the road with a thin layer of water that mirrors the yellow lights of lampposts accompanying the lonely traveller. The leafage of the trees surrounding her path is still dense but alreadypainted by autumn, so that the red-yellow fabric envelopes the black trunks, almost invisible in the darkness. An old building towers over the trees, with its black windows lacking light. The quiet house is full of people that are lying in their beds, tired and peaceful, sleeping and havingmysterious dreams filled with the blue radiance that surrounds the house and street, and hides from us the distance, where the same houses might stand, where the night sky might be tremblingwith the autumn coldness.

The dreams worth having

This wall art picture skilfully painted by Leonid Afremov makes us think about the people sleeping inside the house and then aboutourown dreams. Here are some pieces of advice for you to have only pleasant dreams:

1.            Go to bed early and neither drink nor eat much before night. This will protect you from nightmares.

2.            Neither read frightening stories nor watch horror-films. Dreams become peaceful when you read and watch something opposite to horrors.

Eventually, you can buy this marvellous piece of art by Leonid Afremov, and you will always have only peaceful dreams if looking at the painting before going to bed.

I love this painting! It looks even more amazing in person than it does in the picture. I have never been to Vitebsk, but I got this painting because it looks exactly like a street corner I passed every day when I was studying in a medieval town in Italy. Shipping took forever since it was international, but it was well worth the wait. I hung it across from my bed so it's the first thing I see when I get up in the morning, and I definitely intend to purchase more of Leonid's paintings.

Thank you very much for my amazing "When Dreams Come True" painting. I have never purchased a painting before and was very nervous purchasing one online. I am in Australia, so I was expecting there to be a long wait for my purchase. This was not the case. I am so happy with the communication I received via email regarding the progress of my order, it gave me peace of mind. I initially purchased this painting as a gift for a family member, however I cannot part with it. I think I could get addicted to purchasing these uplifting paintings. Warm regards to all the staff x

I could stare at "SPIRITS BY THE LAKE" all day long. It is the most amazing painting I have ever seen! I bought a copy of the painting and received it in the mail in under a week. I began crying before I even opened the package. To my surprise, the painting in person was not better than the photo. In fact, I don't want to compare it to the photo at all because what I got looks like an off-brand version that was painted by someone in a hurry. I suppose I got what I paid for.
