about this painting:



Do you remember the moment when you have felt the happiest? Was it in your childhood with mum and dad? Or while you were playing with your favorite pet? Maybe it is that unforgettable party that you had with your friends in college? Or a perfect romantic date with a perfect person?

Whatever it is, we all have the moments saved in our memory that we are never going to forget. Great artists are often inspired by such memories when they create a new painting because they are the only people who are able to preserve them on canvas forever.

Leonid Afremov is one of such talented people. His art has now become pretty famous, mostly because it is very expressive and bright and can easily find a response in our souls.

Another reason why he is so loved by many people, both critics of art and just fans, is his amazingly precise and thought-through technique. He never touches brushes, on the other hand, the only tool that he uses is a palette knife. As you can judge from its name, it is used by artists to mix paint on a palette. However, Afremov saw its huge potential as a painting tool that could help to create canvases that are much more expressive and three dimensional.

Let us look at one of his paintings inspired by his personal memories.


Afremov met his wife when they both were in college. They are still together after many years of happy life, that is why you can see happy couples on his paintings so often. They can be young and old, with different hair color and skin tones. Anyway, his couples always seem to be connected with some special unbreakable bond, so harmonious and united they are!

  • If you look at this painting, you can see a young couple that is giving each other a hug in the rain.
  • Rain is Afremov’s favorite weather. For him, it is very romantic and also looks great on canvas giving space to fantastic romantic etudes.
  • They are hiding under the same umbrella, which looks extremely romantic and cute. Afremov often paints couples under the same umbrella. This way he seeks to underline that for two people in love the rest of the world does not exists, as if it was concealed from them by an umbrella.
  • Also, only two people can hide under one umbrella, so nobody should interfere with other people relationships.

Hello Leonid -- I am big fan, this will be the first time I would be buying from you directly, if we can agree. I love the "Paris of My Dreams", but you only have a 30x20. I will need a 72x48, gallery strethed/wrapped. I would also consider a "Giclee" version if you have it, as I am mindful of budget this holiday season. Do you think you can have 72x48 of this painting for me to buy? Sincerely, Virginia Dori vdori@aol.com 1-408-768-8033
