about this painting:


The living past

Those who are looking for nature oil paintings for sale or cityscapes are likely to appreciate this impressive painting by Leonid Afremov. As a rule, a piece of painting is dedicated to one moment of life, to the very present and thus has no dimension of time. However, this brilliant canvas has such a dimension, which differs it from many other paintings. Due to the title of the artwork, it is possible for us to combine the presence we can see in the painting itself with the past that lurks in the title. This feature impresses us and makes the process of enjoying a painting unusual and exciting.

The unforgettable love

Looking at this lovely painting by Leonid Afremov, we see some magnificent city. There is a canal that is slowly bearing its calm water between its banks. It is evening, and the space is lit up with several distant lampposts. Some white-blue building with a brown roof stands on the right bank, with dense set of trees surrounding it, which makes the canvas somehow similar to nature paintings. An arch bridge is thrown over the canal whose surface is reflecting various lights and the darkness of the summer evening. In the sky blue colours are blending with violet and purple ones. These purpur lines resemble a night kiss tenderly touching one’s lips, which induces us to remember our first love and its most tender kisses. This love may have happened here, on the bridge, amid this drowsy evening, and the solitary streets could not prevent the lovers from their passion. And now, after decades passed, one of them is standing here again, and the solitary streets still keep the precious memories of the first love.

Some ways to impress your beloved

If you are in love with somebody, you are likely to want to make your sweetheart feel happy. Here are some ideas for you to think of:

·                    Compose a piece of music dedicated to your beloved. If the music is good, she will appreciate it.

·                    If you a good poet or painter, you can create other kinds of artworks dedicated to her, for example landscapes or a set of poems.

·                    If you are no artist, you can just buy artworks by other masters.

If you buy this marvellous canvas by Leonid Afremov, you can be sure that your beloved will be impressed by it.

I first discovered Leonid’s work on DeviantArt and fell in love with his use of warm and cool colors. After purchasing my first piece for my office at work, I’ve become addicted to his paintings. His technique leaves a beautiful texture on the canvas, and he truly captures the reflections of light on the rain-covered walkways. Everyone who comes into my office stops to admire his work!

So beautiful! I get lost in all of Leonid Afremov's paintings. The colors are so rich and the scenery so ethereal. I highly recommend his works - he is truly the most gifted artist! I am so glad he has shared his gift with the world!
