I would like to present my hand painted oil on canvas painting (recreation) of the artwork HELSINKI — SAILBOATS AT YACHT CLUB. I made this piece with the same amount of soul and emotion just like the first original painting. This piece is created with oil paint on artistic canvas using my unique technique of a palette knife. The artwork has texture, you can feel the strokes by touching the painting. By purchasing on this site, you are buying directly from the artist Leonid Afremov. I guarantee your satisfaction and the best customer experience. 

The certificate of authenticity will include the name of the owner who purchased the piece of artwork. The certificate is signed by Leonid Afremov. If you buying this painting as a gift, please provide us the name of the gift recipient for the certificate. We can also ship to the address of the recipient of your gift.

about this painting:



Casual strokes of brush reflect the mood of the painter who chose to paint the sailboats at the yacht club this time. Though the painting may not demonstrate evident abstract art characteristics, we should still say that Afremov goes beyond the traditional division of the styles of art.

Northern beauty of Helsinki is always superb. It is hard to compare it with anything else. It features unforgettable charmpainters value so much, and we have a chance to enjoy this charm looking at this abstract art.

Philosophical meaning of art

Leonid Afremov provides philosophical meaning to his works that we are going to cover below.

We can make the following observations about the painting:

  • The colors are saturated and dark.

  • Red palette contrasts the dark blue colors to make the painting expressive.

  • The sun shining through the clouds helps producing magnificent reflections on the water.

Challenge of catching a moment

There is dominance of red color as we see a sunset on the landscape. According to common people’s belief, red sunset probably means cold weather the next day. Nobody knows what we can expect tomorrow: cold wind or natural disaster. Now it is peaceful and nice and we should learn to enjoy the moment. Every moment of life should be your favorite one as it is unique.

Themoment we see on this painting is amazing. Spectacular sea does not show any sign of motion and though it can be deceptive, nothing seems to pose threat. The dock with boats near the yacht club takes the central place on the canvas.

The landscape seems to look similarbut it is not. You should consult the photographer to make sure of that if you have doubts. He waits for hours until the sun reachesa certain position to take the photo right at that moment. This person understands the importance of the moment more than others. Learn to value the moments too. No matter what happens, you should remember that every day is the best.

As American poet Emily Dickinson said once: Forever is composed of nows. And she is absolutely right! Every single moment makes the eternity.

How to overcome the troubles of life

What should one do to overcome the troubles of life easier? If you perceive life as a journey, it will be easier to acceptsome unpredicted and unexpected things on the way. This is not some destination point you should reach on your boat. This is just a moment that will continue on and you will never know where it brings you. This Helsinki painting is just a transitory moment as well that will take you somewhere else.

Dear Leonid, Your 3 paintings arrived today and I couldn't be more pleased with them. Communication and customer service was top notch! Thank you for these one-of-a-kind pieces. They will be treasured by my family for years to come! - David Cowan, Austin, Texas

I previously posted that I had just discovered your amazing art and was unable to afford any of it, at least for the time being. I had mentioned that I would look for a print in the mean time. Today I received an e-mail for a site that is all affordable prints. Luckily I was given a gift card for Christmas and I will be able to afford one of the small prints.I am so excited to be able to own a print of your amazing pieces of art. I am often stuck in my bed for long periods of time and I know that being able to see the print on my wall with all of the vibrant colors and beautiful scenes will have a very positive impact on my mood and mind. Now the only problem is picking just one.I hope that if there is anyone else in my financial situation that you find this helpful.
