about this painting:

CLOSE ENCOUNTER

Listen to the Rain

Some might argue that very few things on this earthly plane can hope to rival autumnal rains in their ability to instil gloom and melancholy into our hearts. Relentlessly monotone, they shroud the familiar cityscape in greyness, blurring the silhouettes and drowning out any other sounds. There are those, however, who venture forth from the comfort of their homes, undeterred by the cold and damp: some fires cannot be put out by the raging storms... Some encounters are too precious to mind the weather.

Streets of Gold

Downpours may not be the most pleasant of surprises, but they certainly can be beautiful. Rainy nights are as dull and dreary as you are prepared to make them. Urban environments gain new life as torrents turn the pavement into the obsidian mirror, shimmering with the molten gold of the street lamps. The blocks of concrete and stone shine as the legendary El Dorado. Every colour seems to be more vibrant, every bit of warmth - more alluring and promising.

On their way to cosy cafés or luxurious boutiques, smiling couples hide under the glistening domes of umbrellas. Now and again their laughter emerges from the soothing hum of the rain only to retreat into the intimate shelter of their small private worlds. Curious reflections transfigure the mundane, conceal the plain and twist the familiar. In one instant, masterfully depicted by Leonid Afremov, one can see affection, uncertainty and a careful hope for something better: two people making a leap of faith.

A Perfect Opportunity

"Close Encounter" should prove that it's entirely possible to come across true art online: it's a touching and tender moment, immortalized on canvas. This 24" by 30"oil painting will make a great gift for someone special or simply serve as a reminder that even the murkiest days have the potential to be utterly delightful.

·         Original hand-painted artwork: oil, palette knife.

·         A poignant scene in an atmospheric city landscape.

·         A tasteful and eye-catching piece of decor.

Testimonials
We just received our 45th painting from our favorite master. The Sun of Sicily is amazing! Glorious colors, lots of depth and texture, so vibrant and full of life! It is a perfect complement to our collection. The way Leonid captures the light, sun, Sky, architecture, and spirit of the Mediterenean is simply breathtaking. Every room in our house welcomes us with color and joy. Material things rarely make me happy, but these masterpieces absolutely do. Each is transporting and inspiring. Pure joy. Do yours of a favor and buy a few. All our friends are now collectors. It's addictive! Many thanks to the entire Afremov family. Top-notch customer service. You simply can't go wrong and the smallest issue is immediately addressed to ensure your full satisfaction. None better! Dr Lani Kass

I've ordered 2 paintings from Mr. Afremov. The first one, Night Cafe, arrived yesterday (Friday, June 12), and it is absolutely beautiful. The photos of his work on his web page get your attention with their style and use of colors. But you can have no idea of just how beautiful his paintings actually are until you actually have one in hand. Not just his use of color, but also his mastery of painting using only a palette knife, which gives the painting a layered 3-d effect. If you're even thinking about buying one of his works, don't think.....buy. You will not be disappointed.

I was so lucky to receive 'The ballet class' as a gift for my birthday and she is beautiful. She has pride of place in my home and I smile at her everyday. I'm hoping for another wonderful piece as a Christmas gift. Many many Thanks.
