about this painting:


Still life and Leonid Afremov

The genre of still life is almost five hundred years old. It appeared in the 16th century in Netherlands and still ranks as one of the most widely used genres even in modern painting. Unlike landscapes or portraits, it invites you to be a co-creator of the picture, since you can change the arrangement of objects and thus affect the entire composition. There are many varieties of still life: paintings of flowers, paintings of fruits, paintings of glassware or all of it combined. Of course, in that case the composition will look much more appealing and meaningful. But even a mere bunch of flowers – say, lilacs – can make a nice work of art worth hanging in your living room. Take a look at this impressionistic still life by Leonid Afremov and feel the freshness of morning in the delicate strokes of the palette knife!

Lilac symbolism

Like every flower, lilac has a wide range of meanings. Some of them are purely symbolic, some reflects myths and beliefs of different cultures. So next time you give someone a bouquet of lilac, keep the following notes in mind:

·         According to Greek mythology, the flower was once a nymph called Syringa. To escape the chase of forest god Pan who fell in love with her, she turned into a fragrant bush now known as lilac.

·         Lilac is often seen as the portent of spring. The time of its bloom allegedly forebodes whether spring will be early or late.

·         White lilac signifies the innocence of youth, while purple lilac is associated with first love.

All these meanings are incorporated in beautiful still life paintings by Leonid Afremov! Let’s see what else this canvas tells us…

Morning bouquet

Look at the swishing strokes of paint applied to the canvas! From white to purple, it encompasses an entire range of tender shades used to convey the delicacy and beauty of both the flowers and the time of the day they were gathered at. The gentle, fragile petals still seem to hold drops of dew and the warmth of the first sunbeams. There are no clear outlines, no distinct shapes – a cloud of lilac takes you in its fragrant embrace and drives all your thoughts away for a short moment making space for pleasant impressions and sweet memories. What do you remember when holding this fresh lilac bouquet in your hands? Green fields? Sunny days? Words of love? Everyone will think of something different, something private. Put these amazing flowers on your wall and admire their beauty every day without ever seeing them wither!

I received my 'Spirits by the lake' painting today and I can't stop looking at it. It is very subtley different from the original but this does not distract in any way. The subject matter, and the combination of colours are beautiful. It's taking pride of place in my living room. Thank you Leonid.

I purchased Blue Moon for a live auction (fundraiser) for my church. I just got it back from the framer yesterday. It is so beautiful! The colors are so brilliant - it is just stunning! I may just have to buy it back at the auction. I'll let you know how it goes. :)

I love the mixed media version of Stroll of Infinity I purchased. The black & white portions of the painting are a perfect fit for the rainy scene. I look forward to purchasing more from your series of mixed media editions. Beauty of the Park, Kiss Under Umbrella, and Rainy Wedding are my other favorites! Keep up the wonderful work!
