One of a Kind original painting

One of a kind original painting is a direct result of the creative process. Leonid spends many hours or days making such painting. He has to stop to think a lot during the process and work quite slowly to achieve the painting he wants. Such paintings are marked on the website as One of a kind originals and they have a price tag from $1000 - $30,000 USD . The value of such painting is up to the artist and his sentimental connection of the painting. Some one of a kind originals are not listed on the website and never offered for sale. These are paintings from Leonid’s private collection that he does not wish to sell. you can still see them as recreations on the site. 


Original limited edition oil painting

Many times after Leonid sells one of a kind originals from his home or from the home of one of the Afremov family members. After this happens, he misses the painting on his wall and repeats it . He paints it exactly the same way to have it in his house again or to replace a painting sold from family house. He also repaints sold one of a kind originals from older times as nostalgia , he loved the painting so much that he wants to relive the moments of painting it again.

Such paintings can be created more than once and they all 100% painted by Leonid . In such cases they become limited edition originals. They are sold for a fixed price of $250 USD and are offered only to fans via social media and email news .

Leonid does not photograph the in HD the repeat paintings. so the painting shown on the website is always of the master

We bought "Freshness of Cold" a while ago, and we are absolutely in love with it. The purchasing process was easy and issue-free, and the painting came even earlier than promised. We've just bought our second (and third) paintings--we can't have enough! Simply fantastic, beautiful work.

Only after ordering City By The Lake did I watch a video of you painting a recreation and read some reviews. One review in particular had me worried. I didn't expect the painting to be as detailed as the original but I hoped I hadn't made a mistake placing the order. I have just received it. I am thrilled to say it has MASSIVELY exceeded my expectations. It is almost as detailed as the original and without a side by side comparison could be mistaken for it. It is truly stunning. Thank you so much.
