about this painting:
Freedom of creation
Paintings tell different stories to viewers, and they are not less exciting than Hollywood blockbusters. We can send art on canvas direct to you if you make an order online. The good news is that you do not have to pay for delivery and it does not take long. Soon you will be able to enjoy the painting you liked most. You’ll see that fine art gives boost to creativity more than modern television. For instance, we can create a whole story, while we look at Afremov’s painting “Old Vitebsk-5”.
The majority of big-budget films, created for pure entertainment, are shallow, and the audience eats the stuff up without digesting it as there is nothing to digest. There is no need to contemplate - no food for thought is given. When we look at the art on canvas, however, we are captured by the exciting process of creation and try to guess the story behind the scene shown to us. This type of perception is even more creative than it may seem to you.
A road to Vitebsk
The car is approaching the porch. The trip from the other city was long. The road was dusty, and it soiled the car, which was washed by the welcoming rain upon the arrival. Many times the driver pressed the accelerator and increased the speed. During the whole way he looked at the speedometer but the desire to arrive in time was stronger than the danger. Glare of headlights, car honking and constant nervousness as he looked in the rearview could drive him mad. But if he comes late, he will feel the same way until the end of his life.
The lights were off when he arrived to the porch. His heart sank. But at this very moment he heard how a board creaked, a key turned in a lock and the door opened. The woman was on the porch…
We will stop here to let you complete the canvas that was left unfinished.
Devise your own story!
If your imagination is working, you can devise your own end of the story. This is just a beginning and you can turn it into
A love story,
A horror story,
Or a thriller.
It can even become a science fiction if you wish. We have only a setting and you add the events to it at your discretion. The film-makers do not give this opportunity to us. The painters do. You bring your own meaning to their creations and every painting becomes a joint piece of art – you become a co-author.
