about this painting:
Crossing of seasons
This delicate landscape by Leonid Afremov depicts the crossing of two charming seasons – late summer and early autumn. On the left, viewers can observe the rave of summer colors smoothly passing into golden autumn palette on the right. It seems that the time has stopped right between two seasons for us to amire the marvelous mixture of both and think about the transience of our being.
The bridge we see on the canvas is an image of interconnection between everything that exists around us. It is a link between August and September, the past and the future, yesterday and tomorrow. Staying on the bridge between what we’ve lost and what we are going to face signifies the current instant, the present, this very moment we live in.
Dreams, sweet dreams
The two strangers under the bridge are casual bystanders of the beautiful changes in nature unfolding before their eyes. Holding hands, they are strolling into the joint place of summer and autumn. Perhaps, they are talking about their forgotten dreams of childhood and youth, and imagine new dreams for their future common life. They have no regret about hopes that never materialized. Instead, there is a strong belief that something better and much more significant is waiting right around the corner of their life.
Painting vs photo
This lovely palette knife landscape by Leonid Afremov evokes romantic feelings, slight nostalgia and anticipation of coming joy. With its positive and inspiring ambience, vivid colors and mysterious story of two strangers, this painting is a worthy alternative to landscape design photos commonly used to decorate all kinds of rooms. Here are some reasons to decorate your place with hand-painted art rather than inanimate photo prints:
- Handmade art is always of higher value. It embodies the entire palette of emotions that filled the artist’s soul in the moment of painting carrying a part of their energy and inspiration. Not only do you purchase a piece of painted canvas, but also an entire story spiced with the artist’s talent and style.
- It can become a part of your painting collection. If you collect art, you will probably be interested in purchasing another valuable item for your home gallery. This is always a good investment.
- Each painting by Leonid Afremov is one of a kind. It will make an exclusive interior décor item that highlights your individuality and unique taste, a source of energy, beauty and inspiration.
- Art is an extraordinary interpretation of reality that makes us see it in a new way. We can say that each painting with its own style and meaning offers a fresh look at our outer and inner world. Uncommon representation of common things helps us look at our life from a different perspective, redefine our priorities and see new possibilities where we couldn’t even imagine before.
