An ideal painting

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.
