about this painting:


Victories of the Old General

Today he chooses the art works from home and writes about the feats of the past. Many writers try to do the same but can’t describe the victories and losses so vividly, because they only imagine that and have never experienced those situations. The old general mastered the pen as skillfully as a weapon and now he gains victories on the literary field.

Some battles are beyond description but still he manages to make us feel that spirit. His portrait on the wall reminds him of the past bravery. His talent and wide horizon made him a winner in life. He is a respectable old man with huge life experience that is shared with young generation now. The painter tells us a very interesting story. Every detail on the canvas contributes to the narration created in the minds of viewers, who are intrigued by it and want to know the whole story.

Real professionals never quit

Art works are available to former professionals who left their jobs for health or age reasons, but still have much to tell. It is convenient for them because:

  • They can do it at any time.

  • They don’t have to be employed to do this type of work.

  • They create when they have mood and inspiration.

Our general is not able to continue the military career but he can share the reminiscences, give instructions and be helpful in other issues. When your job was your calling, you never quit.

Though the portrait is a part of the setting, the cat on it looks as if it is alive. The eyes are full of life and energy. We see a young general on the portrait, but we understand that the eyes of the old general remained the same due to his spirit. Otherwise, he would retire completely. However, the old general continues conquering life, and his fighting spirit always brings him success.

Portraying the character

The painter uses very interesting techniques that makes the texture of the portrayal so dense and unusual. Any expert would praise this acquisition – the painting is really extraordinary. It also has a strong mood as we see a person of character behind the canvas. Though we do not see the old general on the painting, the talent of Leonid Afremov managed to show him even through still life as he is able to depict not only images but traits of character.

I really bless the day I discovered Leonid. To date I have only purchased 2 paintings (one this morning!!), but I was blown away by the 'Ballet 3' painting I bought as a surprise birthday gift for my lovely wife. Keep up the fantastic work and I hope to buy many more of your work in future

From the moment I saw Mr. Afremov's work, I was entranced. I was also stunned to find such beautiful work at such affordable prices. I am now the proud and very happy owner of two pieces of Mr. Afremov's work and I would be thrilled to add more. Both paintings (purchased at separate times) arrived in perfect condition within a few days of shipping. Customer service is wonderful, they responded to an email I sent immediately and courteously. As gorgeous as the paintings looked on my computer screen, it doesn't compare to the way the colors shimmer and glow hanging on my walls. If you're thinking about purchasing, stop thinking and just do it. You will not regret it!
