about this painting:


There is no bad weather!

What do you usually do when it rains? Hide under the awnings of newsstands, wait in a small cafe or in the car, stand near the window, sleep, or maybe listen to music? When we are caught in heavy rain, we think that we are out of luck. Sometimes, it ruins the whole day!

Modern people are not always happy of pouring rain or melancholic autumn season, but there are some people who can truly appreciate the beauty of this weather. For example, Leonid Afremov, famous representative of modern abstract art, adores rainy weather and autumn season, which usually evokes dreaminess and a little bit of sadness.

Rain is the energy source for nature. People have dedicated many songs and poems to rain. Rain charms with its magic, this is a spectacular and amazing phenomenon. It even has an impact on the development of certain traits of human character.

Rain helps creative people and those who philosophically perceive life to comprehend and understand the secrets of nature. Easterners, who are known for their contemplation, believe that rain is nature's attempt to wash away all accumulated negative.

Melancholic autumn

"Rain energy" is painted in traditional colors for the artist - yellow, red, white and blue. Yellow and fiery-orange colors dominate – they make this autumn story warm and bright. When you first look at the picture it seems that the depicted cityscape (perhaps it is a city park) is immersed in darkness, typical for a late autumn evening. But closer examination shows that it is not - we can see various light sources, competing in their intensity:

light gleams that enlighten the faded foliage of trees

 glares in puddles on the wet path

 windows of the house that successfully harmonize with the landscape

This autumn night is light and amazingly beautiful. Looking at the picture, we can literally breathe in pure fresh air, hear the song of the wind, the trickling of water and the croaking of crows. Smoke and noise, typical for urban life, melt in this rainy autumn idyll. We don`t see the moon, but the bright sky tells us that if we look up, we will definitely see it.

Harmony and balance

The composition of this abstract canvas art is balanced, and the lines and groups of figures are placed in classic proportion: the horizon line is at one-third from the bottom edge of the canvas. At first it may seem that the house weights the right part of the picture, but the trees at the left successfully balance its massive figure.  The center of the picture is minimalistic: two lonely lanterns and two people, hurrying to the cozy and warm embrace of their homes.

The house at the picture deserves special attention. It seems that it is a house from Christian Andersen`s fairy tales: ornate patterns of monograms, antique windows, red tile roof... The house brings its special warmth to the atmosphere of this painting, as well as the light of lanterns and the play of colors in the enlightened crowns of trees. Put this lovely view on your wall and enjoy the beauty of rain every day regardless of the weather!

I have never even been very interested in art or artists, until I saw Leonid Afremov's work. and WOW! looking at his pieces opened a floodgate of emotions. You can see his passion in each and every piece. I now have two of his wonderful pallet knife paintings hanging in my home..Happy Sunflowers, and Friends with a Dog. True masterpieces!

I randomly found Mr. Afremov's art while searching around Deviantart. Ever since I first laid eyes upon the bright colors and breathtaking paintings I have found myself obsessed. My searching led me to his personal website. I followed him on facebook for some time too before making a purchase. It all seemed too good to believe. I placed my order, purchasing "Night of Expectations" and "On the Way to Morning". I was overcome with such excitement and eagerly waited until I got the email confirming that they had been shipped. When they finally reached my home I eagerly opened the package and literally sat in front of my treasured paintings and just took in every detail for probably 20 minutes. I was so eager to get them hanging on my wall. They look fabulous! I keep eyeing the site and checking out the deals. I am positive that this will not be my last purchase! Thank you for providing the world with such wonderful and inspirational art! Thank you for making it very affordable as well!
