I would like to present  my hand painted oil on canvas painting (recreation) of the artwork INSPIRATION OF THE VILLAGE. 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.

about this painting:



The majority of people in developed countries nowadays live in cities. This has many advantages. For example, you do not have to make your own food – you can just go to the local supermarket and buy anything you need. City life is more interesting in means of entertainment. You can choose from a wide variety of theaters, cinema and museums at any day of the week. You have all the commodities in your home:

  • central heating,
  • running cold and hot water,
  • canalization
  • and a fridge to store food.

However, there are many people who after 20-30 years of living in the city leave everything behind and go to live in the countryside. Why?

There are things that you can find only away from urban life like good ecology, peace and quiet of simple life. Success and popularity here do not count, and you can finally have some rest from an everlasting rush.


Leonid Afremov has a special talent of transforming his emotional state into a piece of art. Probably, that is why his paintings are so popular nowadays. Afremov believes that art can cure soul eliminating sadness, nervousness and grief. He always creates his works when he is in a good mood. Inspiration is important when he creates a painting but even more important is the desire to help people and make their lives better. That positive energy can be felt when you look at his artworks.

On this canvas, you can see a row of country houses near the water. This is a rather prosperous village, probably, somewhere in Europe because the houses are beautiful and taken care of. They are located in a beautiful place close to nature; maybe there is a forest not so far from the village. It is twilight, that is why purple and lavender colors dominate the whole. Yellow and orange make a nice contract with these darker colors.

There are no lanterns or other sources of bright light like on many other Afremov’s paintings. This particular canvas has something dreamy and cozy around it. If you are looking for a piece of art to decorate your bedroom or the bedroom of your child, it is a perfect choice. The painting is pretty long – 100 cm, so it can dominate one of the walls in the room. Although its composition is very simple, you will not need any other decorations in that room, because its colors are quite difficult and interesting by themselves.

I'm a retired jazz trombonist. The essence of jazz is improvisation. Improvisation is the ability to look at a thing from a different perspective each time you look at it. That is what the pallet knife wielding Mr. Leonid Afremov does with his recreations. I have the pleasure of waking each morning and looking up the rain swept street of "The Loneliness of Autumn" and wondering where my road may take each day. I wasn't prepared for the blaze of color or the depth of feeling when I tore the boxing open at delivery even though I had looked at the painting on the internet dozens of times before purchasing. It was like seeing and hearing Louis Armstrong in person for the first time after just listening to him on recordings. Some times it even awakens the urge to pick up my horn and blow a few choruses straight at the painting expecting it to blow a chorus or two back at me. The man is a magician.

I was searching online for some beautiful fall pictures and Google turned up a picture that I fell in love with right away. A little research revealed it was "LONELINESS OF AUTUMN" by Leonid Afremov and that led me to his website. I was AMAZED that I could buy an actual painted edition!! Feeling incredibly lucky, I purchased the recreation right away... It arrived from Mexico to Canada well packaged and absolutely spectacular! I took a picture to share and my friends and family have been wowed by the colours and vibrancy. I can't stop looking at my wall, and I so appreciate that Leonid has found a way to make such beautiful art an affordable treasure. I'm sure this will not be my last! With great admiration and appreciation! ~ Stacey Terry Brandon, MB, Canada
