about this painting:



Our friends are almost like our second family. Their importance grows as you become older too, since they will be there to support and help you in need, when you parents are not around anymore. However, real friends are hard to find and even harder to maintain such relationships. That is why many people consider their best friends their other half, children or pets. A special connection with your pet, a feeling of affection and loyalty, is something that can rescue you from depression and anxiety when it seems that the whole world is against you. 


There are only two kinds of people in the world: those who love dogs and those who prefer cats as pets. Actually, this choice can say a lot about you! Of course, you should not take such things too seriously, but read to see whether it is right for you:

  • A cat person. Scientists have conducted a research that proved that in general people who prefer cats are more intelligent. They are a wider mental outlook and range of interests.


At the same time, cat lovers are oriented at finding a partner, a true love for life. They are sensitive, sophisticated and even-tempered. It is not a secret that usually cat lovers are introverts and like to spend their free time alone.

  • A dog person. In contrast to cat lovers, those who prefer dogs just love big companies and loud parties. They are extroverts, love people and do not understand how anyone can sit at home alone when there are so many interesting things out there. Also, such people are very cheerful and optimistic and love life.


Dog lovers like to be leaders and make an impact. They usually lead a more active lifestyle, which is inevitable if you are a proud owner of a dog who need to spend a couple of hours everyday outside running and socializing with other dogs.

It is a question whether dogs or cats are better friends to humans. Anyway, a famous contemporary artist Leonid Afremov likes both and frequently paint portraits of his little friend on canvas.

On this painting, you can see a lovely family of three members: a couple and their dog all hurrying home under the rain. The color palette of this artwork gives us the sensation that something special and magical is going on, while there is really nothing more ordinary that that.

I am not an art critic, just someone who loves art. At first glance I was amazed by Mr Afremov's work. It was the layers of color that moved me. Then I read his biography and truly appreciated the emotional connection to his pieces. His work is so beautiful that I want to fill my house with his paintings. Thank you Mr Afremov for your beautiful creations! I am honored and excited to share your work with my two beautiful boys. Bless you and your family!
