about this painting:
Source of inspiration
If you lack vital energy or inspiration for new achievements, have a look at a water stream with its relentless flow and everlasting movement. It overcomes all obstacles finding its way along small pebbles and big rocks. It endures any weight carrying tiny water inhabitants and huge wood logs.
Just imagine that you are part of this constant flow, travelling along forests and valleys, seeing new and new landscapes, feeling fierce wind gusts and fervent sunrays. It is unpredictable and changeable just like our life: you never know what will happen next and what to expect tomorrow. That’s why i is so rigorous and, at the same time, sweet. These nonpresumable turns make our days unique and captivating. Without them, our life would seem too plain and grey.
Water in art
For centuries, painters, sculptors and poets represented water in their works as a symbol of purity and the ultimate source of life. Sea expanses, river banks and lake sights can be spotted in many pieces of fine art. America is a country of great natural resources – humid rainforests, amazing waterfalls, deep rivers and borderless oceans – and artists from all over the world widely use their imagery in their works. Who can resist the temptation of depicting a rampant water current on the canvas or hanging such a picture at home to relish it every day?
Leonid Afremov created “Forest stream” using one of these great waterscapes as a model. We can really feel the liveliness of this autumn scene and the fascinating air of the scenery touched by the soft breath of early fall. It is a bright example of impressionist style in fine art. America paintings by Leonid Afremov are always particularly beautiful and inspired, probably because the artist used to live there for a long time. If you look close, you can trace certain peculiarities repeating from painting to painting:
- Versatile color palette that matches any interior scheme.
- Expressive arrangement of strokes applied with a palette knife rather than a brush.
- Rich texture achieved by painting in layers.
- Plain yet appealing imagery reminding us that there is beauty even in simple things.
- Positive emotional appeal that immediately raises your mood.
If you are still unsure about wall art choice for your home, opt for “Forest Stream” by Leonid Afremov! This lovely forest painting will bring life to your room and give you energy for new fulfillments.
