about this painting:
We are always overwhelmed by sudden changes of the weather. Grey gloomy streets can no longer impress our imagination and improve our mood. We long for other landscapes: starry sky, full moon and new colors of nature. So when you can finally go out and see a white blanket of snow and gleaming ice on the ground, it makes you smile with delight.
“Ice Reflections” represent this weather condition, showing a broad alley in the park, lost in numerous nude skeletons of the trees. The glass-like surface of the road reflects the bright lights of the lanterns like a mirror. Leonid Afremov paintings are always motley and luminous, and this canvas is no exception. It radiates an excellent mood and fires your imagination. You get a conspicuous impression of a desolate icy alley at dusk and can almost feel slippery ground under your feet. Thousands of icicles dangle from twigs and lampposts, their ice crystals sparkling in marvelous shades. Brilliant-blue colors prevail in the foreground of the painting giving way to vibrant colorful strokes of paint in the background. They create a great amount of light radiated by the lanterns and reverberated on the ground.
Main painting elements
· Ice as a manifestation of purity.
· Warm glow of the lanterns illuminating the canvas.
· Ice-covered earth that creates rich light effects.
· Distant silhouette of a lonely stranger walking in the park.
Purity of the soul
Ice, clear as glass, becomes a manifestation of purity as opposite to dark mud that covers the earth in autumn. You are awed by the serenity and beauty of these winter landscapes that hold you in their white embrace. Though it is freezing cold, you feel even warmer than one of the summer days. The soul is lightened by sweet memories and pleasant associations. You recall children playing in the snow and slipping on ice, their laughter echoing in your head. Immersing in this silent world, you get rid of everything that makes you life unhappy and restless. Your soul becomes as pure as the first snow. You have a great opportunity to contemplate this unforgettable view every day. And you will, again and again, walk in this quiet winter park enjoying fresh air and captivating scenery.
