about this painting:


Ultimate source of life

Have you ever pondered on the hidden sense of light? It has always been associated with eternal good, in contrast to darkness that represents the unknown and dangerous. In all times, artists have used light as a symbol that has multiple meanings:

·         Light symbolizes the illuminating power of love.

·         It gives us direction and wisdom showing us the path ahead.

·         It makes us feel safe and cozy since we can clearly see everything that surrounds us.

·         Finally, light is the source of life on the earth.

No wonder Leonid Afremov loves painting light so much. This art on canvas is all about light and color that merge into one powerful duo and guide your eye through layers of paint until you reach its underlying message.

The city guardian

In this beautiful and inspiring painting, Leonid Afremov imparts an even bigger meaning to light and lanterns as its visualization. A lonely lamppost, the focal point of the artwork, illuminates the dark desolate city with bright colors and elevated mood. It guards the by-passers revealing the beautyof the alley, wet and shiny after the rain. The artist allows us to plunge into the peaceful atmosphere of the sleeping city and captures the sense of infinity dissolved in the night air. This piece of personalized art encourages you to walk down the street, relax your body and clean your mind of trivial everyday troubles. There is nothing around you except the magic light of the lanterns and the drowsiness of this quiet autumn park.

Painting with light – colors of purity

This work of art is a fabulous example of modern painting with a bright Impressionist palette and rich texture achieved by the use of the palette knife. The best way to describe the style of Leonid Afremov is to say that he is painting with light. Or, to be more precise, painting with light and color. Just look how amazingly the artist managed to capture the ever-changing shades of the lantern light in the night sky. Thick brush strokes are applied side-by-side without any obvious pattern; however, viewed as a whole, they produce an unforgettable visual effect. This technique cannot be confused with anything else. Through this amazing painting, the artist shares his unique vision of the world where there is no place for anger and anxiety. Our life is full of beautiful moments and small details that we usually pass by without paying attention. But you can learn to notice them, all you need is to stop and watch. Never stop looking around for true beauty and let the light enter your soul and home!

I just received the paintings I recently ordered which now brings my total to eight. I'm very lucky to own all of these beautiful Afremov paintings. The latest lovely paintings include "The Little Stream" and "The River of Memories." They are both exquisite. I am always taken somewhere special when I look at my Afremov paintings. Mr. Afremov, you are a treasure to the world for bringing us your special art, and making it accessible to many people.
