about this painting:


An ideal painting

An ideal painting, even if it is a piece of link abstract canvas art, ought to have

1.            A unique style and technique used by its creator;

2.            Some thought-provoking image peculiar to this artwork;

3.            Strong connection with reality, so that a spectator be able to change his attitude towards reality after looking at the painting.

Leonid Afremov’s original abstract canvas art as well as his realistic paintings meet all the requirements, and this marvellous painting of his is no exception.

The wholeness of the world

Modern abstract art consists of lights, shadows and colours. However, this excellent painting, in spite of its title, has nothing to do with this kind of art. Although the canvas is dedicated to shadows and lights, it depicts the whole world of nature and affords us an opportunity to enjoy not only some aspects of the world but every element of it, which makes it truly pleasant for us to enjoy this fine painting by Leonid Afremov.

Neither here nor there

The world of the excellent artwork is divided into two parts, with the road being the border between them. On the left of the road, we see dense trees keeping every leaf on their branches. Some trees are burning yellow, while those standing in the distance behind them are still green. On the right of the path, bare trunks have no apparel to cover their nudity. The fog covers the sky from us, and the silent tress are plunging their black branches into its impenetrable whiteness. However, on the left no trace of the fog can be seen, and the bright trees are feeling the mild sunlight on their trembling leaves. And on the right there are doleful shadows lying on the ground by the leafless trees. You see two persons on the road, whose silhouettes, the first one absolutely dark, the second one painted with the yellow sunlight, are disappearing in the distance. You are going and disappearing alike, and it is for you to decide where to be now: in the light or in the darkness.

Buy this and other pieces of realistic and abstract canvas art by Leonid Afremov and enjoy the magnificent atmosphere peculiar to every artwork by the master.

I was instantly drawn to your website after my friend posted a painting of yours. I could tell from your painting that your talent is G_D given. For me , it is obvious that they are also G_D inspired. Hopefully one day I will come to own one.

I purchased a piece to hang in my dorm room to remind me of home (my parents are art fanatics) and I am overwhelmingly pleased with it. Thanks to the painting, my roommate has taken down all her silly posters and has ordered her own painting. It really brings beauty to such a depressing room. Thank you.

Looking at the vibrant colors of Leonid’s paintings, I couldn’t help myself but to order a couple during his Birthday Special Deal offered on 12th July 2014. Unfortunately, due to some error I received a package of wrong paintings. However, upon my pointing it out to Boris, this large hearted family admitted the mistake and sent me my correct package. I have now received my correct paintings and they are amazingly beautiful. A very nice addition to my personal collection. I will for sure order again from them as the paintings are worth every single penny. And more so they are amazingly affordable for a painter of international repute. Both thumbs up Leonid for your glittering work and commitment.
